Explanation:
Solo te puedo ayudar parcialmente. Vise = tornillo de carpintero. Vise chuck = prensa sujetadora. Eso lo encontré en el Diccionario Politécnico de F. beigbeder. Quizás Vise chuck = Vise grip
Espero sea de alguna ayuda.

alicates de presión


Explanation:
The name will be different in different places. A vice grip is sometimes called locking pliers. They can be adjusted with a screw in the handle and grip something tightly, like a vise.

pinzas perras


Explanation:
"Pinzas perras" es el nombre popular que se le da a dicha herramienta en esta localidad (Cd. Juárez, Chih., Méx.) pero supongo que podrá ser variable según el lugar. Lo que pasa es que "Vise Grip" en inglés también es una marca y no es nombre genérico.
