Why woodworkers need a cross vise.

Review Summary

Occasionally, we woodworkers need a cross vise, especially when we are trying to drill accurate holes in metal parts we use in conjunction with our woodworking projects. I purchased this particular brand when it was on sale for half this listed price and it seems to be of good quality, but do shop before you purchase as there are many of these on the market and most are made in China.
This one works very well in helping me to center the drill bit to the intended spot and it's a whole lot easier than loosening and re-adjusting your drill press table or un-clamping , readjusting, re-clamping to get that exact spot. Wished I'd purchased one sooner.
