The RIDGID® bench chain vise BC610 holds pipes or tubing from 1/4 to six inches for cutting to the desired length. It features a crank handle to adjust to a comfortable angle This pipe chain vice can grip the entire curved surface instead of applying pressure at only two points, like with a standard grip. There's no chance of crushing a tube or pipe, or damaging its finish, because the tool's grip prevents slipping during cutting. Non-marring neoprene jaws keep from gouging or scratching the work piece Though designed with the workshop and a bench in mind, the Ridgid chain vise can be attached to a portable stand for use on the jobsite. It provides enough stability to help with bending pipe or electrical conduits for construction or remodel jobs.
