Ken-Tool Announces New Product Line of Industrial-Duty Vises

These vises are designed for strength, toughness and extra durability to withstand use in a professional work environment.

Ken-Tool announces a new product line of Industrial Duty Bench Vises and Multi-Purpose Vises to complement their line of Professional Mechanic’s Vises. All lines are now in stock and available through Ken-Tool’s distribution network.

“These vises are designed for strength, toughness and extra durability to withstand the day-in day-out use in professional auto mechanic’s work environment,” said Doug Lee, national sales manager. “They feature high-quality construction for optimum performance at any jaw opening. They are made for the professional—strong, durable and built to last.”

Ken Tool vises come in four styles:

• Industrial-duty bench vises

• 5″ professional multipurpose bench vise

• Professional mechanic’s vises

• Professional reversible mechanic’s vises

The Ken-Tool Multi-Purpose Vise features two sets of jaws for fast clamping on workpieces. The 5 in. wide jaws are made of 45# carbon steel, heat treated with precision machined jaw teeth. They provide a solid grip on your pipe or square stock. Its main screw system is a U-shaped collar designed for a stronger clamping force and durability. The head of this vise rotates 360⁰ along with a 360⁰ swivel base.

The Professional Mechanic’s vises have high quality construction for extra durability and full-strength performance at any jaw opening, these vises are made for the professional – strong, durable, and built to last. “V” notched, replaceable/reversible jaws made of carbon steel and heat-treated for extra strength, diamond cut on one side – smooth on the other.

The reversible mechanic’s vises have all the high-quality features and rugged durability of the pro workshop vises and more. They significantly increase gripping capacity when the position of the front jaw is reversed. To reverse the position, simply remove the jaw from the front of the base, swivel the base 180 degrees, then re-insert the jaw. Two built-in anvils provide more work surface area than any other vise. 

All of Ken-Tool’s new professional vises feature:  Lifetime Warranty on the Casting 360-degree swivel base Machined base plate for smooth swivel Heavy-duty jaw beam covers screw Built-in anvils Replaceable/reversible jaws made of carbon steel and heat-treated for extra-strength,  diamond cut on one side — smooth on the other; gear-type locking system with double lock-down bolts—locks vice securely in position.
