The York HVRQ803 is a 10½" No.53, the largest available cast iron underslung woodworking vice.
York quick release vices have a simple but effective quick release system - no levers, just take two full turns off with the main handle and the spindle will slide freely. Two turns forward re-engages the mechanism.
The York HVRQ803 can be face mounted or flush mounted and is designed to work with a 3¾" (95mm) thick bench top.
If you do a lot of face vice work, or just like to take a belt and braces approach to bench building, this monster will do you proud; a full ten and a half inches wide with a cavernous fifteen and a half inch opening.
York vices have been manufactured in the town of DobÅ™íš, near Prague in the Czech Republic since 1921. They have rightly inherited Record's crown for well made, workmanlike, European manufactured bench vices.

Note: When engaging and disengaging the quick release mechanism some momentum is required to flip over the cam nut that disengages or re-engages the drive. Spin hard, pull gently and it will serve you well for the rest of your life with no trouble at all. Please be sure to keep your fingers out of the jaws when sliding.
