Product Information:

Sjöbergs is a leader when it comes to workbenches and their unbelievably great vises. Now, instead of buying the whole bench, Sjoberg introduces the smart vise. The Smart Vise is 14-1/2" W x 12" L x 2-3/4" H with a clamping capacity of 4-1/4". The best feature: it can be installed on any work surface with a minimum of two clamps.


  • Portable work surface

  • 4-1/4" vise opening

  • Space saving

  • Easy to clamp to any work surface

    Comments about Sjobergs Smart Vise :

    I needed a vice that I could attach to a thin metal workbench in my basement and this seemed to be the best option. The jaws are square and the screw is smooth. Materials are cheaper than Sjöbergs usual quality which was a bit disappointing. Also the four short screws that come with the unit are too short and the two outside screws did not attach to the top plate. I replaced mine with slightly longer screws. This vise is a good option if you need a woodworking vise but don't have the appropriate bench. The portability is an added bonus.

    Comments about Sjobergs Smart Vise :

    I expected more from Sjoberg, but despite my 1-star rating, this one isn't all bad. It will hold your materials well enough. The materials used to build this vise are just poor. Most of it are mdf with a veneer on top. It is not solid wood. The vise itself is hard wood, but should be thicker. My vise is not square, so it holds things at an angle. With a Sjoberg name on it, I'd expect better. If you're considering building a workbench, I'd hold off buying this.

    Comments about Sjobergs Smart Vise :

    I was planning to build this vise for carving. Sjoberg came along at just the right time with this vise. I did add six holes to the main platform and another two holes to the vise. This makes it much more flexible for smaller pieces. Overall, very handy for flat work carving (I.e relief carving, chop carving).

    It is what it is

    By  Neill

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Easy to Use
    • Good Grip

    Cons

    • Limited Clamping
    • Marginal Instructions

    Best Uses

    • At Home
    • Minor Projects

    Comments about Sjobergs Smart Vise :

    This unit is very solid and grips very well. The directions leave something to be desired. I had to take mine back to Woodcraft for some minor assistance in the assembly. One problem I did encounter was that because of the limited distabnce between the top and the bottom plate you are limited in the type of clamp you can use to secure the unit.

    Comments about Sjobergs Smart Vise :

    Great vise for a small shop area, where i can clamp it to the workbench when i need it. Solid, built well, and easy to use. Only thing I would ask is that the plastic bench dogs get upgraded to something more useful.
