Wilton Tradesman XC Vises

December 18, 2017


La Vergne, TN Wilton® may not be a household name in some areas, but consider this: Most industrial factories in the United States have anchored their workbench stations with the stalwart Wilton Tradesman® vise for more than half a century.  Manufactured in the USA, the Tradesman Bullet Vise is the number one industrial vise sold today. This durable vise is extending its reach beyond factory shop floors to mobile utility trucks with the introduction of Wilton’s Tradesman XC vises.

The elements can wreak havoc on equipment used in outdoor environments, but the Tradesman XC vises incorporate electroless nickel plating on key components which last up to five times longer.

In addition, all Tradesman vises are known for their impenetrable fully enclosed design. This feature extends the life of the vise by protecting internal components from dust and debris. These vises are factory lubricated and permanently sealed with lifetime lubrication for trouble-free service and operation.

Typical applications for the Tradesman XC vises include utility work trucks, aerospace and transportation, machinery, metalworking, mining and coal production, utilities, construction and the defense industry.

Tradesman XC vises feature a virtually indestructible 60,000 PSI ductile iron body with a precision slide bar calibrated to .003.”  This tolerance eliminates movement in the front jaw regardless of opened distance.  A longer spindle nut is used in the vise.  In fact, it’s 3x longer and 2x thicker than the spindles used on traditional vises.  This ensures a lifetime of smooth spindle movement and straight line pull.

The Tradesman XC vises also employ a large anvil that’s twice the size of average anvils. It’s designed to take blow after blow while forming and shaping materials.

The Tradesman XC vises have 360º swivel bases with a four bolt mounting system to ensure a solid foundation. Other standard features include main jaws, pipe jaws and a machined anvil work surface. The Tradesman XC vises are covered by Wilton’s Lifetime Warranty.

The Wilton Tradesman XC vises (6-1/2”, model 1765XC, $649 MSRP) and (8”, model 1780XC, $999 MSRP) are available through industrial distributors and several online retailers.  For further assistance, contact Wilton Consumer Relations at 800-274-6848.
