Different Types of Woodworking Vises
This woodworking auction provides you with an extra set of very strong hands. Solid hand tools for woodworking can improve your work. A bench vise helps you make smoother cuts, whether using a hand plane or sander.
A woodworking vise is an indispensable woodworking tool. A bench vise holds your work steady in a variety of positions. A quality bench vise lets you set up your work faster.
Auctions of woodworking tools include two basic types of bench vises - Front Vises and an End Vise. Generally, you mount a Front Vise at the left or right corner of your workbench. A cast iron variety with a quick release mechanism is the best. A quarter turn of the handle releases the screw and allows you to position the vise anywhere along its opening range.
Look for a vise that opens wide enough to accommodate the thickest piece of stock you use. Remember that you subtract the thickness of the wooden pads for jaw faces. A 9" capacity vise with 3/4" thick pads gives you 7 1/2" wide opening. This is plenty in most situations. However, the odd possibility does arise when more comes in handy.
To keep the jaws parallel, the diameter of the screw and the alignment rods make the most difference. A 7/8" diameter screw and equally beefy rods offer rigidity to keep the jaws from flexing outward at the top under normal working conditions.
