Bench and Drill Press Vise
New! Quick-Acting Bench & Drill Press Vise Is The Most Fully-Featured, Best-Working Model We've Ever Offered
If you're a Shopsmith owner, you've probably already figured out that having a great drill press vise could be a BIG help for holding small workpieces while you bore holes, rout mortises and perform other operations with your Shopsmith set-up in vertical drill press mode.
One Vise or Two?
And, we're also guessing that you've run into situations where having a bench-mounted vise would be pretty handy, too ! But adding both of these tools to your shop can be a costly proposition. Small drill press vises with little in the way of features can run between $50 and $130 or more. Bench vises can easily exceed the $150 range.
Here's a Solution
This great combination vise offers 4" wide jaws that adjust rapidly with a pushbutton quick-release mechanism. It can be mounted easily to your drill press table (through your Mark V or Mark 7's sawing table insert or with our sliding T-Nuts (included). Or, you can also mount it to your workbench in any number of configurations (see photos) using the included bench-mount clamp.
You get a lot of versatility for about the same money as a low-cost drill press vise alone.
Quick-release button lets you slide jaws open and closed FAST
Rubberized grip feels comfortable in the hand
Handle can lock into position at 90° angle for added leverage
