Product Information:

Universal is an excellent way of describing this vise. The 3-1/2" wide by 2-1/8" high jaws have a 5" open capacity, in either a vertical or horizontal position. The faces are drilled to accept wood facings, there is a small anvil, and the vise rotates 360ยบ on its base, locking tight as soon as an item is secured in the jaws. The handle and thread are chrome plated for durability. Bolt holes in the base legs make it easy to attach the vise to a bench top.

  • Handle and thread are chrome plated
  • Bolt holes in the base legs
  • Rotates 360 degrees
  • 3 1/2" wide by 2 1/8" high jaws

    Comments about WoodRiver Universal Vise :

    Can Not lock the vise in position independent of tightening the vise jaws. Whoever thought this was a good idea I Can Not Imagine. That's right folks, the swivel locks from a drag (Long Set Screw) that is placed on the slide of the vise that completely compromises the action of the slide. I just don't get it. The casting is of poor quality, not at all like the crisp clean appearance of the vise in the advertisement. The vise shown in the advertisement must have gone through some serious touch up, blending and rework. I wouldn't use this vise even if someone gave it to me for free. This vise is useless to me and I will be returning it.

    Very convenient to carry tool to the job. Just bolt it to a square of 3/4" plywood and clamp to stable surface, and voila!

    Comments about WoodRiver Universal Vise :

    I have been building muzzleloading guns for over 20 years using the old "Versa-Vise" and there has never been a better vise! For not being made in the USA it is a good quality vise! It even interchanges bases and tilt adaptor with with my vises. The only thing it needs to be the best gun making vise; is have the "tilt adaptor" as an option!

    I use this vise for building Flintlock firearms. My only gripe is that it needs a knob to lock the swivel position. Other than that it is a quality item.

    Comments about WoodRiver Universal Vise :

    Great vise, this allows clamping in nearly any angle and rotation around the center axis. It's durable (I bought it on the recommendation of a lutherie teacher who uses 6 of them daily in his teaching shop), and flexible.
