Tegara Milling Vise is built for taking punishment. Blast it with coolant. Fill it with chips. Crank it all the way down and get the most out of the 8,000 Lbs clamping force. This battle-tested vise can stand up to the abuse of even in the most demanding machine shops. We use 80,000 PSI stress relieved ductile cast iron body (Material FCD60) to lay the foundation. Combined with 40+ years of manufacturing know-how and real-world application feedback, each vise body has gone through rigorous grinding process on the CNC grinder with micron accuracy. Critical component such as lead screw are also precision turned to achieve smooth but rigid movement.

Each vise body will be put under the microscope to filter out unsatisfying cast iron bodies before assembling
Semi-hardened bright finished lead screws with precision turned threads to give them a solid & smooth feel when turning the vise handle
With a heavy duty thrust bearing pack located on the rear of the vise body, the clamping force is a pulled rather than pushed motion. This pulling mechanism would reduce stress and minimize deflection on the vise body when applying high clamping pressure.
Every machinist is afraid of the term "jaw lift" when associated with a vise. The 690X offers key improvements to prevent jaw lifting by using a 45 degree wedge and a pivoting ground finished steel hemisphere in a milled pocket to hold down the movable jaw. This results a minimal amount of jaw lift applying under pressure when comparing to other highly regarded go-to branded vises.
6.25" Opening capacity allows more clamping in a small footprint. With the 5 mounting thru holes with 5" spacing on the vise bed would allow more vises mounting side by side on a milling table.
-Vise jaw plate threads and spacing meets the industry standards- Bedways are flame hardened to 45 HRc and jaw plate hardened to 54 HRc- Bed height and the distance between keyway and stationary jaw remains the same and meets the industry standards- Bed height matched to 2.875" +/- 0.0005"- Vises' bed parallel to base within 0.0005"- Fixed Jaw perpendicular to bed within 0.0005"- Fixed jaw parallel to vise's keyway within +/- 0.0005"
Continuing from the design feature in 690V vises, a brush on both end of spindle nut to wipe off chips to improve & extend the lead screw life.
2 large chip evacuation slots are strategically located on each side of the vise to allow a good flow of chips while at the same time not diminishing the vise’s body strength. The vise body is also reinforced with a thicker rib to support the pulling mechanism when clamping
When ordering multiple vises, the bed heights will be matched within .0001" at no additional cost (subject to inventory stock availability)
Tegara vise comes with 10 year limited warranty against defects in material and workmanship for the life of the product or part. (The life of the product or part is defined as that point in time when such item no longer functions due to normal wear and tear). Failure to properly maintain and/or properly operate the product or part under normal conditions will void this warranty. This warranty does not cover any product or part that has been worn out, abused, heated, ground or otherwise modified, used for a purpose other than that for which it was intended, or used in a manner inconsistent with any instructions regarding its use.
