Dillon vise jaws are available with industry standard hole patterns that fit most manufactured vises Click image to enlargeDillon Manufacturing, Inc.’s vise jaws have machined work surfaces to fit the contours and curves of your workpieces. 

It has exacting tolerances (+/- .002” in all dimensions, including flatness), and is available in 1018 steel, stainless, 6061 aluminum, or specified alloy materials, in standard or custom blanks. 

Soft jaws or hardened (heat treated) jaws are available in in HD or HDL vises. 

Dillon Vise Jaws are available with industry standard hole patterns that fit most manufactured vises including Chick, Kurt, TE-Co, Toolex, and Palmgren.  

Carbinite coating can be added for improved gripping after the vise jaws are machined to specifications. Comprised of wear resistant carbide alloys that increase grip to enhance mill performance, Carbinite coatings display exceptional bond strength without annealing or distortion.
