Swivel Vise

Position a workpiece exactly where you need it with this versatile vise. The quick-change design allows for mounting multiple accessories.

Having the ability to quickly rotate and position a workpiece is a huge advantage when performing certain tasks. However, finding the workbench space to permanently mount a tool that may not be used all the time isn’t the best use of space. The shop-built vise shown here is the perfect solution. This vise can be temporarily mounted to a workbench using existing dog holes and easily removed when not needed. But the genius of this vise is the use of a standard hitch ball between the vise jaws that gives you complete adjustability on two axes. Simply release the handle to rotate and tilt the workpiece to the position needed.
