“I received my order today and I just wanted to tell you thanks. The wood is exactly what I wanted, absolutely beautiful, the packaging was great and I'm looking forward to buying more from you. I've purchased tonewoods from other vendors and ebay before, but even the best from them doesn't compare to the quality and value of what I bought from you. Thanks again!”

  • Compact size of  9” x 8” x 5-1/2”  can easily be stored away when not in use.
  • The vacuum work holder creates over 400lbs of clamping force with our SPVP vacuum pump (at 22in Hg vacuum).
  • The ball head vise is supersized for stability and instrument safety (75 lb support capability at 45°).
  • 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.
  • The mounting base is oversized for temporary bench clamping and is also pre-drilled for permanent mounting.

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).
