Vises and Vise Jaws

Vises consist of two parallel jaws that clamp together to securely hold a workpiece. In most vises, one jaw is movable by lever or screw, while the other jaw is fixed in place. Vises are made of various materials and can include temporary jaws of sheet copper or leather to cover the permanent surfaces when soft workpieces are being machined. Some vises are able to swivel or pivot in relation to the base, so that the workpiece can be held in a variety of positions. Vises are manufactured in numerous sizes for a variety of uses, from portable hand vises bolted to a workbench, to pipe vises used by plumbers, to angle and rotary vises.
