    Giffin Grip Mini

    Introducing the Giffin Grip Mini - new for 2022!

    • All the quality and reliability you expect from the Giffin Grip, only smaller and packed with new features.
    • Fits all pinned wheelheads with US-standard 6" or 10” wide pin spacing (exact measurement from pin-centre to pin-centre) including the Shimpo RK5T Tabletop / Aspire. *see note below
    • Does not fit the Rohde HMT500 or Roderveld wheels unless the wheelhead is re-drilled/pins re-fitted on 10" centres. European spec varies slightly to US-standard pin spacing.
    • The Mini is much lower profile than the Model 10 so your trimmings will stay in your splash pan
    • It locks down once you’ve centered your pot so that it doesn’t loosen/tighten while you’re trimming.
    • This locking mechanism also means it works in either direction - clockwise or anti-clock.
    • You can trim pieces starting at 5/8” in diameter all the way up to 9.5” in diameter.
    • Model 10 parts are not compatible with the Mini (and vice versa).

    *NOTE: The Giffin Grip Mini has two sets of holes for pins that are at 10" (25.4cm) on-centre. One set of holes is intended for a 1/4" socket head cap screw with a head size that is 9.4mm diameter. The other set of holes is made for a metric socket hole cap screw with a head that is 10mm (this is the new size that Shimpo is using with the RK-3E). If you look at the bottom of the Giffin Grip Mini you will see two blue stickers. These stickers cover up the holes that are intended for the metric size batpins. To use the metric bat pins, simply remove the stickers and place them over the holes that are intended for the 1/4" cap screws. The stickers are intended to help avoid confusing the two.
