Description

Jorgensen's Rapid Acting Woodworker's Vise is unequaled in quality. "Quick-Release" action lets you bypass the screw for fast opening and closing. Solid steel dogs in the front jaws, when used in conjunction with a bench stop, allows oversize work to be held securely on the bench top. Machined, toed-in jaws provide a solid grip, while northern hardwood handles provide balance and comfort. The front and back jaws are drilled and tapped or countersunk holes to allow for optional wood facing. Fits any bench up to 3" thick. The jaws are 10" by 3.5" and the maximum opening is 9".

Fabulous Vise

Review Summary

I purchased this vise on sale 6 months ago and boy did I get a deal. It replaced an older 7" vise that was good but didn't have the opening I required. The quick-release on this vise is excellent and a huge improvement on the one it replaced. The big jaw faces are fantastic and a welcome tool to hold the various boards, panels, or whatever I am working on. It grabs and holds your work piece like a pit-bull on a mission.
I have heard that Jorgensen is phasing this vise out and that would be a true shame. If you need a good, solid basic bench vise then I would recommend this one over most on the market.
