The HNT Gordon tilting vice jaw is designed to enhance your pattern makers or front vice, by allowing you to hold a vast array of shapes including wedges, tapers and double tapers. These objects can be large or small.
The jaw is 150mm long x 50mm wide, and the brass dog will fit into a 1/2" hole that is 1/2" deep. The jaw will tilt to 16 degrees in any direction, giving it vast capabilities.
The jaw rotates on a brass knuckle, and the tension on the brass knuckle can be adjusted by simply loosening two grub screws and tightening the threaded knuckle cap, and then re tightening the grub screws (see photo 3).
The tilting jaw can be used in the back jaw of the pattern makers vice, which has two 1/2" holes to accept the brass dog. The tilting jaw can also be used with your HNT Gordon front vice to significantly enhance its capabilities. You can do this by simply drilling a 1/2" hole in the side of your bench which you use as your back jaw. Make sure you only drill your hole to a maximum of 1/2" deep.
