Bravo Barrel Vise
The Bravo Barrel Vise offers a tremendous amount of performance at a very affordable price.
The Bravo Barrel Vise does not come with the ARCA Mounting Base. But the ARCA Mounting Base is a great additional product that we recommend you to purchase with the Bravo barrel vise.
Based off of the same bushing design as our highly successful “Modular Barrel Vise”, the “Bravo” utilizes a simple 2 bolt design to clamp the top and bottom together. This clamping system greatly reduces the amount of machine time, materials and complexity of the assembly, therefore, allowing us to greatly reduce the price WITHOUT sacrificing any material or design quality.
Made from high strength 7075 Aluminum, we CNC machine all the parts for an amazing fit and finish. Supplied with the “Bravo” are two alloy steel 1/2″ x 13 cap head screws 3.25″ long, Grade 8 washers and Grade 9, extreme strength 1/2″ x 13 Nuts. The supplied cap head screws can be used to secure the top and bottom together, or the end user can purchase Two hex bolts, insert them from the bottom and use the washers and nuts on the top.
The “Bravo” uses the same readily available barrel bushings as the “Modular Barrel Vise” . When using the appropriate bushing and the supplied non-adhesive drywall tape, you can clamp onto finished or painted barrels with out leaving any handling marks or defects. Each “Bravo” vise comes with one bushing set of the customers choice, a $40 value.
Mounting the “Bravo” is very easy and can be done on just about any surface. There are 3 main options for securing your “Bravo.
- Use the ARCA rail machined into the bottom of the vise and secure it to any type of ARCA mount like our ARCA MOUNTING BASE.
- Drill Two 1/2″ holes in a surface, place the “Bravo” on the top and use Two bolts on the underside of the surface to thread into the Two 1/2″x13 threaded holes.
- On a Milling Machine table or any other T-Slot, place the “Bravo” on the table, align two 1/2 x 13 T-nuts below the vise and use the top clamping bolts to thread directly into the nuts for the clamping pressure.
All of our barrel vises use commonly found “Drywall Joint Tape” to protect the barrel’s finish and help grip the barrel. Drywall Joint Tape can be found here.
