Yes
I had a Sear's 3 1/2 inch (small) bench vise whose sole plate has three mounting holes. Without drilling into the Workmate surface, one can easily mount 2 machine screws through both the vise base and the WM surface. Those two vise mounting screws have shown to be sufficient for the tasks I do on the WM. I installed the vise at a table corner location, easy access and minimal impact on the net Read More

It can easily be removed, if a project might "need" that space.
For CERTAIN that vise was a most handy addition. Read Less

Answer: 
A metal working vise? An idea would be to mount the vise to another panel (or slab) of wood to which another piece, such as a 2"x2" was attached on the bottom so as to allow it to clamp it into the workmate. Good place for such a vise is at a corner. An auxiliary top such as that is what this needs for that purpose.

Workmate 425 Portable Project Center and Vise is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 295.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flimsy This is not half the quality of the workmate I bought almost 30 years ago. I am very disappointed. My old workmate had premium wood clamp decks bolts into steel. I pounded on it, stood on it, through sheet of 3/4 inch plywood on it. In short I worked it hard. It was the best tool I ever bought. I bought this unit online because I could not find it in a store. I would have never bought it had I had a chance to look at it. There are a lot of plastic parts. The deck bolts into plastic and will not tighten up. The deck clamps are cheap plywood. The deck clamp got scratched up during assembly just setting on the frame. The assemble instructions are hard to follow. I will keep it as I need it right now to complete the current job, but I will look for a different brand when the job is done.

Added feature of vertical clamping option is a huge plus. Stores compactly and adjustable height also provides extended versatility. Surface table is not as thick as previous models, however, given the nature of the wood (bamboo ??) it should provide ample strength and hardness for most projects and clamping situations. You Tube reference provides numerous options for getting the most out of the WM 425. Highly recommend this product. Once you own one, you'll wonder how you did without it all this time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh! Underwhelmed by the product. Drive belt used to have both adjusters work in tandem is poorly engineered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product Underwhelmed Me I have used a WorkMate 200 for many years, and it is still a very reliable and effective unit. I purchased the WorkMate 425 to complement the 200, but am disappointed in it. The construction is not up to the quality of the 200 - not as robust. One of the aspects I want to make use of is the vertical vice for clamping a larger work surface in place. However, the structure of the vertical vice is not really that strong, and the arrangement makes the unit unbalanced when there is a large extended surface on that side of the unit. The unit is extended on the other side, but the footprint does not provide support for larger parts clamped in the vertical vice. With a heavy wide part clamped in the vertical vice, the unit tends to tip over, so it does not meet that aspect of my purpose in getting it. I also find that the removable top sections come loose too easily and always seem to be in the wrong place - they do not stay in place very well, and I am not sure how long the mountings for them will last - I expect them to give up before very long. I cannot recommend this product at this time - I have had the product about a month, and it is not as suitable to my intended usage as I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A second set of hands I am for ever working alone on projects and find I always need another set of hands. The B&D 425 project center has allowed me to work faster and complete the majority of my projects without the help of someone else needed to hold things while I work on them. I have wanted and needed a work center for many years and finally decided to purchase the work center and am very happy I did. The quality of workmanship is far superior than I had anticipated. A very heavy duty piece of equipment and would recommend this product to anyone who finds themselves needing a second set of hands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great design, mediocre materials Quality of WM425 is much less than my 20 yr old original Workmate which is still performing flawlessly. Top panels are 5/8" bamboo plywood. Bamboo is a very hard wood and could have made an excellent top, but 5/8" is way too thin for a work top, mine was 1/16" warped out of a flat plane - unacceptable. One end of the rear slotted panel slides forward if you grip an object at the other end of the jaws - it should be lockable. The assembly instructions are awful and illustrations ridiculously small. Nevertheless, most DIYers should find it a useful and versatile tool.

They were made really well and sturdy. This is not what they were, I'm sure it has something to do with cost. Clamping system is not that great, it's hard to get the holes aligned and will skip to the next hole if the piece you're clamping is uneven. It is also awkward to open up. If you just need a light weight and foldable work surface then it might fit your needs otherwise save you're money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Box in terrible shape, everything in box was loose. This was to be my husbands Christmas. He had this work bench years ago until it broke. He loved bench and wanted another one. Ordered it and was delivered in a torn up, taped up box. I felt that with box in that bad of shape that product was probably not in good shape. I was very disappointed. If you could guarantee that I would get one in much better shape I would reorder.
