Light Duty, Vacuum Powered Portability
The PanaVise 209 vacuum base PV Jr. is a one-piece work-holding tool with specialized elements at its base and head. The rubber base is 3-3/8" (86.4 mm) wide, with an integrated lever along its upper edge. A downward flip of the lever lifts the inner center of the base up when against a nonporous surface, creating a vacuum action powerful enough to secure the holding tool and the item secured within its jaws. The unit can be used on horizontal or vertical planes, and a dual adjustment mechanism on the vise head allows for both coarse and fine adjustments. The holding power of the jaws can be softened with an optional padded accessory for holding extremely delicate items (sold separately). The head element of the PanaVise 209 vacuum base PV Jr. has jaws composed of reinforced thermal composite plastic that are 2" (50.8 mm) tall x 1" (25.4 mm) wide, and open to 2-7/8" (73 mm). The grooves along the jaws' inner edges are designed for dependable holding power of all kinds of items. Because vise applications such as circuit board wiring and jewelry making- involve soldering, the vise head assembly of the PanaVise 209 vacuum base PV Jr. is highly heat resistant, with continuous heat tolerance to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and intermittent heat tolerance to 450 degrees F (204 degrees C).
Split-ball joint adjustment allows the vise head to move across three separate planes. View larger.
Independent flexibility along the vise arm allows for 140 degrees of additional movement. View larger.
Tilt, Turn and Rotate Functionality
The PanaVise 209 Vacuum Base PV Jr. utilizes PanaVise single-knob "split-ball" functionality at the point of contact between its base and vise head. Once an item is secured within the head, the split-ball system allows for maneuvering separate planes (tilt, turn and rotate). The complete range of mobility possible with the 209 Vacuum Base PV Jr.'s split-ball system is a 210-degree tilt to the side, along with either an angled rotation, or level turn range of 360 degrees. The PanaVise 209 vacuum base PV Jr. also allows for an added 140 degrees of movement via an adjustment knob at its base. This adjustment utilizes positive indents to prevent "flopping," and locks the arm firmly into place while working on items. The combined range of mobility allows a user to rearrange a work item into virtually any position, and eliminates the need to adjust the overall position of the work station.
