Raise your work to a whole new level. This vise provides a solid grip and all-around access.
The design is based on a traditional style of vise once common in Europe. Stout hardwood jaws and rugged Acme threaded rods deliver all the clamping force of a standard vise but in a compact package. The narrow, profiled jaws let you work on a piece from a variety of angles. Perhaps best of all, the vise is elevated so it’s a real back-saver. The plan provides three ways to attach it to just about any worksurface or bench.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
