Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

    Work Holder

    with Robert O'Brien

    Manufactured and assembled in the USA. USFlag75

  • Compact size can easily be stored away when not in use.

  • Creates over 400lbs. of clamping force
    When used with our SPVP vacuum pump (at 22 Hg vacuum).

  • Supersized ball head vise for stability and instrument safety
    (75 lb. support capability at 45°).

  • Superior Control – A single knob controls ball head clamping through 3-planes: 90° tilt, 360° head rotation, and 360° vise ball rotation - tightening engages clamping in 3 stages; first the tilt locks, then head rotation, and finally vise ball rotation.

  • Oversized mounting base for temporary bench clamping
    and is also pre-drilled for permanent mounting.

  • 7.25" diameter clamping surface. 

Our versatile Vacuum Work Holder System
consists of two parts (sold separately):

  1. The aluminum vacuum work holder head, VWH, comes with a quick connect tube fitting sized for our SPVACTU 1/4" vacuum tubing. There is a second tapped port available for accessories.The vacuum work holder has both a radius and soft gasket material to conform to the arch of both the back and top of the body.
  2. The Panavise® 3-axis ball-head vise, PVISE, mounted to a plywood base.

The Accessory Kit, VWHAK, consists of a dump valve that allows you to quickly release the vacuum from the fixture you are using, and a one-way check valve that prevents vacuum loss for approximately 10 seconds should you lose power or have a pump failure, preventing a sudden loss of vacuum in a critical situation. The vacuum dump valve also allows instantaneous re-positioning of the instrument on the work holder (compared to turning off the vacuum pump and waiting for the vacuum to drop).
