In a general or home workshop, a mechanic's or engineer's vice is every bit a useful as a woodworking vice. However, not everyone wants to drill holes in their woodworking bench. This universal vice holder offers the best of both worlds; a firm mounting for a mechanic's vice without the need for a permanent fixing.
The holder is 250mm x 300mm x 30mm thick knot free European beech, strong stable and tough. A batten on the underside allows you to grip it between the jaws of your woodworker's vice.
The universal holder is suitable for both hobby and professional vices. You only need to drill holes to screw or bolt the vice to the holder. The big benefit is having finished with the vice you can stow it away and your benchtop is clear once more.
