In truth, most woodworkers need the type of clamping arrangement a front vise was designed for more often. Many front vises also have a pop-up dog on the outer jaw, which lets you hold a piece stock face up across the width of the table. Still an end vise is awfully handy when the need arises to quickly and easily secure a long length of stock face-up. Ideally, one of each is the best way to go. But if you have to choose just one, look for an end vise that's set up to function as an end vise, too. You'll save money, and still have the all the bases covered pretty well.

A larger vise can be actuated almost in almost any manner, but a smaller vise is typically controlled manually. When using a swivel base and jaws that can be angled the machine vise can be utilized in multiple project functions.

If it wasn't for this process, high quality precision metal parts would be almost impossible to produce. One of the most important tools for the machinist is a machine vise. The vice is able to hold the workpiece in place while it is undergoing milling, drilling and cutting processes. Machine vises are not only used in machining. These vital tools can also be found on the bench top in most woodworker shops. They allow for pieces of wood or metal to be held in place without clamps.
