How wide will jaws open

Asked by Dog March 17, 2017

Answers

While it shows as a 4" vice I had to file off a bit of casting flash in the handle end of the slide slot. Took about 30 seconds and then it opened up to right about 4"+. Just open it up as wide as you can and It should bottom out at the handle end by the number 4, If not just clean out any slag/flash in the slide slot at that end.

I think those grooves might refer to what is called a stove bolt.

what size nuts and bolts are required to attach to drill press?

Asked by Harry March 4, 2020

Answers

I looked at several bolt configurations and sizes from 1/4 inch and larger but the next job would need a different setup. I stopped bolts and used clamps to move it for use but even then look to the underside of your base to find an even surface to clamp onto. Many do not have a decent way to make the bolts or clamps useable with wing type nuts but clamps were usually best for easy changes.

Probably the easiest way is mount it on a thick piece of OSB or 2 x 12 using carriage bolts that are countersunk on the under side so the board will be flat on the bottom. Use washers and nuts on the top. Then when you need it you could just clamp it to the drill press table. You could also install carriage bolts through the mounting board in the other direction with the bolts lining up with the slots in the drill press table. Then use washers and wing nuts on the under side to anchor to the drill press table. Hope this helps.

What is the weight of this item?

My scale goes only up to 3.3 kg or a little over 7 lbs, and it is some heavier than that. To make a guess, I would say that it is probably over 10 lbs too.

Will this work c wren 8 inch drill press

Answer

My vise fits well on my Ryobi 10 inch press. You might make a paper template of the table on your 8 inch press and take it to the store with you when shopping for your vise to see that the mounting holes match up. If not, explore the possibility of a smaller vise or making a mounting interface pad with a small piece of quarter inch plywood.

Use this for my WEN 4214 bench top press. I had to go over the vise tightening all the screws before the crank worked smooth, without jaws binding, for the jaws, otherwise the vise worked great.

Add a little vice to your life. I'm a DIYer with a small (8") Craftsman bench drill press. This one barely bolts to the press' table's slot pattern; it's meant for slightly wider table slots. But using #10 x 1-1/4" machine screws, wide washers and wingnuts I worked up a firmly secure and trued arrangement (see photo). The vice opens to 4-1/4" without the optional non-marring jaw covers. The quality is adequate for a basic no-frills vice. I encountered no issues with any of the parts not moving easily (I did oil the screw and deck).

This vise works well in my 10 inch drill press. I keep it under the worktable for storage and when I need it to hold an item I put it on top of the worktable and fasten it down - see picture. I have used it to hold 1/4 steel for fabricating braces with no issues. Home Depot had the best price for the 4 inch size. Overall the vise has all the precision I need and is well built.

My brother had one of these for years, we have used it so many times, on projects at his house, I 'm glad I was finally able to get mine. It eliminated a lot of injured fingers and hands from trying to hold smaller objects while drilling holes in them. The vise can be clamped or bolted to the drill press base as needed.

This vice is advertised to be used on a drill press. It is fairly heavy but should still be fastened somehow to the press table, either with clamp(s) or by using the screw-hole flanges. At first I could not close or open the vise fully. There was too much binding of the lead-screw. After copious amounts of oil was applied and the screw was operated a few time to each limit of travel, it works acceptably well, but it still binds a little. Make no mistake, this is not a professional quality tool. At the time of this review, a price was not evidently available, so that makes it a bit difficult to judge the "Value". Most similar ones on the internet go for about $30-$40. I would expect this one to be about the same or a bit lower. The jaws are removable and theoretically could be replaced. I don't know how hard it will be to get replacements, although for most folks that would never be required. A possible weak point may be the lead-screw handle which is fastened with a pin. If this fails, it could be fairly easily replaced or repaired somehow.
