The jaws on this vise can open up to 2" and have rubber covers to protect your metal. The rubber covers are removable so you can also use it for riveting and hammering. The securing C-clamp is wide enough (2") to fit on most benches or tables. The ball and socket joint allow the jaws to be tilted and can rotate 360 degrees, but will hold the jaws firmly in place at any angle.
I got this for Christmas.. and OMG I love how it moves to any position.. you just dont know how much I was fighting with some of my items before. I can even use my dremmel to cut and polish metal and it does not move.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this table vise. An absolute joy to stamp rings with. Holds the rings very steady. I highly recommend this to anyone stamping on rings. Beaducation has AMAZING customer service as well!

I had been struggling with stamping rings. I ordered this vise and I am very pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use! It holds the mandrel steady and maintains tension well. Being relatively lightweight, I can set it up almost anywhere!
The Perfect Size
I love the versatility of this vise! It holds wire while I twist it and holds metal shapes securely as I file and refine. All without marring the metal. I plan to use it for fold forming next.
Wonderful - goes every which way but loose. Wish I had found this years ago. I make my own rings for chaining and this holds to well from every direction - make the job so much easier!
Saw this used with the power punch. I have another vise but this one is truly different. It stays where you put it and is easy to move when you want to. Very nice tool for any type of bench work. My husband even took it once instead of the other way around!
I bought this after I smashed my finger punching a hole in a blank. This is a great product to hold your power punch.
