This tool is unique and very functional… It is a numbered limited edition, with Certificate of Authenticity, in original box… It is in excellent condition, never having been used… This is another discontinued tool, which you rarely see for sale anywhere…

The elegantly functional design of the CT-5 Hand Vise was inspired from the Alford hand vise last produced over a century ago… The bright nickel-plated, precision milled jaws are fashioned from solid steel and assembled onto the center portion of the tool… A flawlessly turned rosewood or Juara wood handle, capped with a brass ferrule is attached. Completing the assembly is a solid brass knob with a matching wood infill…

A hand vise is specifically used to hold work where your fingers will not, cannot, or should not go. You use this tool for all items too small or delicate to hold with more “modern” techniques, like slip-joint pliers or locking pliers… The major difference is your hand is free from the squeezing needed for pliers. This is of great help to those who have grip or hand strength difficulties… Rather than have a small part spin in your pliers, use the CT-5 Hand Vise… You control the pressure needed to firmly hold the work. The result is perfect execution without crushing, deforming or losing your work piece…

The first thing you will notice is the dampening characteristics of the steel jaws when touching small parts to abrasive machines… Vibration is dispersed throughout the mass of the metal components… What used to feel like a ride on a wild bull now feels like velvet. And the wood handle provides additional dampening…

I prefer PayPal, but will consider PMO… $225, shipped in the CONUS…
