The ultimate woodcarver's clamp, built around a hefty 80mm diameter steel ball. This principle allows complete positioning flexibility whilst the considerable 'heft' of the product ensures that this clamp will not move or deflect in use. The clamping operation is simple, requiring only one hand to operate the clamp lever. In the event of wear, the clamping pressure can be very easily adjusted. This elegant clamp is simply mounted on the (hopefully very robust!) bench with a single bolt through the base. The work mounting plate supplied is 105mm x 60mm and has four holes for workpiece securing screws: the plate can be removed by releasing two clamp screws. Additional plates are available should it be required to have multiple workpieces mounted simultaneously.
WivaMac are producers of high quality, high performance, superbly built and specified woodturning lathes.
We have worked with WivaMac since our very beginings, indeed we were a customer before we were a retailer. We visited Willy's shop in Belgium where we lived at the time and this was our 'pilgrimage' for woodturning equipment.
We have seen the evolution of the machines over the years. Hemsley Sr. continues to turn on his DB6000 to this day, whilst Hemsley Jr. tackles work on a Zebrano - generations of owners, separated by generations of machines, it seems only fitting really.
To this day, WivaMac continue to put quality manufacturing and innovation top of their list and continue to deliver superbly considred lathes to those who settle for only the best.
