Anyone who has tried to clamp a small part in a bench vise will see the benefit of this detail hand vise. Based on a similar tool from the late 1800s, it offers multiple mounting options, allowing greater freedom to position your work.
The vise can be held in a larger vise, fastened to the edge of a bench, wedged into a 3/4" dog hole, or hand held and moved as needed. It’s easier and safer to hold small parts in this vise for power sanding or grinding.
The cast steel jaws are 1" wide and open to 1 1/8"; overall length is 5".
