Made in Nebraska, USA!
Instructions  -  Uncrating the 90lb TITAN Engraving Vise™


Brake screw being adjusted. 


Here the brake screw is set at the most free spinning position. 
Do not unscrew it further or remove the screw.  Screw it
in to provide more resistance.   There are approximately
ten turns of adjustment.  Turn it all the way in
and snug it up for the most braking resistance.

Warning!  Please read this paragraph carefully before beginning to uncrate your vise.  If you have a question about it contact us before uncrating. In fact, when ordering please let us know you read this paragraph.  Referring to the above photos.  Never lift the vise if the brake has been removed.  Before lifting, look closely at the brake screw to verify it is in place.  There should not be a reason for it to be removed.  The brake of the vise consists of a plunger and spring.  The plunger is used for safety during lifting.  When lifting, the plunger can  catch the bottom of the ball if the two halves begin to separate.  The fit of the two halves make it unlikely they will separate, but for safety, first verify the brake has not been removed before moving or lifting the vise.
Note: For shipping to help make sure the brake stays in place, a drop of the lowest strength Loctite® was placed on the brake screw threads.  To break the Loctite® loose use the hex adjusting wrench on it and screw it in a few turns (then unscrew it back to the position shown in above photo for free spinning). 

Liability - This vise is seriously heavy. If it should fall or drop it can break bones in your foot or whatever body part it hits. Use this vise at your own risk. Lindsay Engraving, Inc, or Steve Lindsay are not responsible or liable for any property damage or personal harm it may inflict.

Warranty - As with AirGravers, PalmControls, our other vises and holders there is a three year parts/labor minus shipping warranty. Damage to the vise caused by its being dropped is not covered in the warranty. Please DO NOT attempt to take the two halves of the vise apart! The bearings are sealed and lubed for a life time (or several life times) of service.  If there is ever a problem contact us first before attempting repair work yourself.

Cleaning & Care - The body is stainless but can still dent or scratch. The jaws, pin plate and acme screw are hardened stainless and will hold up better to dents and scratches. The acme screw and T-slot can be cleaned with a cloth.  Hold a cloth against the threads while opening and closing the jaws to clean the threads.  A light grease on the threads and T-slot is fine. Before shipping they have been lubricated with white lithium grease. The base is aluminum. If it should tarnish it can be be cleaned with aluminum polish such is sold for polishing aluminum car rims at auto-parts stores.  To keep the vise dent and scratch free, be careful not to drop wrenches or parts on it.  If using chemical acids on an item being engraved (i.e. ferric chloride, Birchwood Casey® gun blue or Super Blue™) be very careful with it. If acid spills down on the acme screw and t-slot take the jaws and acme screw apart right away and clean the acid off the parts before it pits and rusts everything in place.  (Don't try to take the two ball halves apart though!)  The vise is stainless but not against acid! If you do spill acid on it please email right away with your phone number and Steve can help with ideas to clean up and neutralize the acid. 

 Instructions  -  Uncrating the TITAN Engraving Vise


After placing the base on your bench, pick up the vise
using the handle and carry it to your bench
and set in the base. 


Vise in place on sturdy work bench


Remove the bolts and lifting plate.  Keep the lifting plate and use it any time you would like to lift the vise. 
Please do not try and pick up the ball without the lifting plate.   It is hard to get a hold of and it can
pinch your finger when setting it back in the base. 


With the jaw screws removed, the pin-plates can be
removed by picking them straight up. 


Here the pin-plates are being reinstalled.  The hex socket
headed bolts do not need to be overly tightened.
To keep the vise dent and scratch free, be careful not
to drop wrenches or parts on it.


Here one jaw has its two bolts left out that permits it
to pivot float.  This is useful if you are holding an object
without parallel sides. 


Since the jaws are threaded, various fixtures can be made and bolted down. 
The wood jaws shown above were made for the 6" Goliath Vise and Turntable vise
but they also fit the smaller of the two bolt patterns on the Titan Vise.
These wood jaws look small on the Titan but will still work depending on what
you are holding.  They are shown as example ideas for making your own
larger ones.  You may contact us if you have a special request.

The Vise Holding Accessory kit will also fit the Titan with the smaller of the
two bolt patterns at the top of the jaws.


The internal brake has 10 turns of resistance adjustment. 
Screw in (clockwise) to increase the drag and decrease free spinning.
