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.

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.
