The PV1 Pana Vise can be secured to a working surface in three places using the Ø1/4" (6.35 mm) countersunk mounting holes, which are located on a bolt circle that is 4.31" (109.5 mm) in diameter. The Pana Vise's nylon jaws help to reduce unintended marring, and are mounted on a post that slides into a split-ball joint. This arrangement enables the vise jaws to turn 360° on the post as well as rotate 360° and tilt 90° using the ball, allowing for a multitude of arrangements. All three degrees of freedom are locked down using a single locking knob, which makes the Pana Vise easy to orient so that the part being held can be worked on at the optimal angle.
The TMV2 Toolmakers Vise is ideal for use in a machine shop. This ground tool steel vise has a flat bottom and sides that allow it to lay flat on all three surfaces. This vise is an excellent choice for holding small parts that are being drilled and tapped for mounting holes.
