Hydramax Technologies has introduced a new line of vise jaws for chick-type vises.  The model Hydra 5-stc can hold up to 20 parts in a double vise. It fits directly onto a chick vise with no modification. 

 

The jaw uses hardened pistons (acting independently) and hydraulic action to equalize holding pressure on all the parts. A common channel connects the pistons and allows equal force to push against each part. Since the parts are held with the same force, all part movement is eliminated. Also, broken cutters and damaged parts and fixtures are eliminated as well.

 

The self-contained unit attaches in seconds to the sliding member of the vise using the chick locking pin and requires no external hydraulic lines.

Available in several configurations, the Hydramax is able to hold five, six, seven, and ten parts with a single vise and twice as many parts with a double vise.
