Woodcraft Supply Corp., Patternmaker's Vise

Product No. 142768 Available today for $94.99


The body of this heavy cast iron vise swivels 360 so you can always position your work where you need it. The 4-7/8" wide jaws open to 6", and both jaws swivel so you can clamp virtually any shape. Perfect for holding table legs for shaping or carving. Secured to any bench or table top up to 4-1/2" thick by a heavy threaded rod (which requires a 3/4" hole) and large winged nut, so it can be quickly set up and removed as needed.
