Both of your hands will be free for important projects when you have a woodworking vise in your shop. As the name suggests, these vises are primarily aimed at carpenters and other craftsmen who need a strong clamping device. A woodworkers bench vise can also be used for light-duty DIY metalworking and fabrication. They attach to a fixed point on the front of the workbench and stick out the front where you can secure the work piece for sawing, planing, drilling, sanding and more. You’ll get more done and achieve the shape you want for everything from table legs to custom oil pans.
Woodwork Vises for Sale
Order a Yost wood vise or Wilton woodworker’s vise from Eastwood to hold your work in place. They range from 7 to 10 inches with one fixed jaw and one sliding jaw to fit the item you’re clamping. Most of the wood working vises we carry are face vises, which have two flat-plate iron jaws that hold objects without dinging the surface. This shape is perfect for 2x4s, wood panels and metal panels. Some have wood jaw inserts that further cushion parts. A pivot jaw woodworkers vise shifts from the normal parallel position to hold irregularly-shaped objects. Continuous action vises require turning the handle to move the jaws while a rapid action vise can be pushed or pulled into place and then tightened.
