Product Overview

Remember when you could make fine-tune adjustments with the simple turn of a wheel? The WEN 4.25-Inch Cross Vise provides stable support for your workpieces. Perfect for incremental drilling and other precision work. Attach it to your bench top, your drill press, your work table and more. Made from heavy duty powder-coated cast iron, the WEN Cross Vise grips tightly onto your workpieces, providing over 1900 pounds of clamping force. The 4.25 by 1.25 jaws open up to 4.125 inches wide. Make minor adjustments along either axis with the onboard hand wheels. Each hand wheel features machined 0.1 mm increments, each full turn representing 3 mm of travel. The vise moves a full 5.8 inches (148 mm) along the x-axis and 6 inches along the y-axis (150 mm), making it the perfect companion for woodworkers and metalworkers alike. The fixed jaw features a V-shaped groove to hold round objects either vertically or horizontally while the removable handles help users easily install the vise into tight spaces. With five 1/2-inch mounting brackets positioned around the outside edge of the vise’s base, the WEN Cross Vise is compatible with the majority of drill press tables on the market. And because it’s a WEN product, your cross vise comes backed by a two-year warranty, a nationwide network of skilled service technicians and a friendly customer help line all to make sure you remember WEN.

Yes, I could only get two bolts in to hold it down, but it is heavy enough that it will not move.

Yes. Used mine for a P80 build on the 4208. It's definitely not designed for this press but it works if you bolt it in correctly.

Will this model work well with the WEN Model 4210 10" drill press?

Asked by KD December 24, 2018

Answers

This vise should work fine, but I would say it may depend on what your are wanting to do. If you need to make a series of precisely spaced holes then this vise would work great as it can move the material 2 directions using the precision of a markings via the cranks verses a clamping only vise which would require you to move the material and remeasure the hole placement.

Can the vise mechanism be reversed so the vise closure lever and the in and out handle are on the...

I changed the Saddle around and it works just great. Just remember to keep the dog point set screw on the slotted end of the Gib, and aline it first.

Any idea when you'll have more of the vices

Can you use this for milling

Yes, sort of. After much re-lube with heavy grease & re-adjustment, precision improves a lot. But, it's not gonna beat an expensive pro rig. But, for the price, it's great!

Very heavy, well built. A little stiff on the x,y, controls right out of the box but with a little lube and some use they broke in well. This vice is definitely worth what I paid.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I have a standard drill press vice which is fine for some general use but a little annoying if it's fixed to the base and I need to adjust the position. This however is a huge upgrade in terms of adjustability. There is plenty of travel on each axis to get your hole lined up. The measurement increments are metric, which is a little odd, but I found myself eyeballing against either my pencil mark or center punch holes anyway. Larger adjustments do feel a little rough, perhaps I need to add some additional lubrication. The handles also don't convey a feeling of precision and wiggle around a bit. It just ends up feeling a little clunky if you're moving things around. As a hobbyist, this will suite my needs quite well, but if I was going to be using this day in and day out I might see some of these little nagging details being deal breakers.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
There have been many times when I needed a vise that moved in two directions. I could then, drill a set of two holes accurately, without having to spend a lot of time making two set ups. With this Wen compound cross slide vise, I made two 1/4" dia. holes in a 1 1/4" dia. Oak dowel, by only rotating the hand wheel a few turns. The fixed jaw has a horizontal "V" shaped groove that firmly kept the dowel from slipping, while I was drilling. The fixed jaw also has a vertical "V" shaped groove, to hold the dowel in a vertical position, if I wanted to drill into the end of the dowel. The 3 3/4" long tightening handle for the vise face, gave me plenty of leverage to solidly tighten down the dowel. Once the dowel was tightened in place, the hand wheels easily moved the dowel along an "X" "Y" axis, in measured increments of 0.1 mm. The shank of the hand wheels are clearly engraved with graduated millimeter markings. A pointer, on the vise body, above the millimeter markings, allowed me to accurately keep track of travel. A full rotation of the hand wheel represents 3 mm of travel. After I made a hand wheel adjustment, I didn't have to lock in that adjustment, as there was no looseness in any of the vise mechanisms. The vise solidly held that adjustment. The vise weighs 19-lbs., heavy enough to hold everything in place, while drilling the dowel, without bolting the vise to the drill press. The vise generously has five mounting brackets for securing it to a work table, or drill press base. The vise also includes 3 sizes of Allen wrench, for any adjustments to fittings. This is an accurate, heavy duty, great vise!

(What's this)
This 4 inch compound cross slide vise can be mounted on the workbench or a drill press. It is heavy duty and certainly well made. It can easily handle a 4 inch wide piece. The cross slide can travel 6 inches in one direction and 5.8 inches the other direction by using the hand-wheels. Each turn is 3mm. which give the precision needed for milling either wood or metal. This is a quality vise and certainly a great value.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is a very substantial powder coated cast iron vise which is very useful on my workbench! It gives a very stable support due to its weight and the five ½ inch cutouts in the base (see picture) for securing this to either a workbench or to a drill press (the five bolt pattern is compatible with most drill press tables). The markings for adjustments on two axis planes are very easy to read (see pictures). The only assembly involved two washers and nuts to hold the spinner handles for the two adjustment axis planes (see picture). The vise opens a little over 4 inches (see picture). Both vise plates align perfectly flat for a good grip (see picture). The vise moves 5.8 inches along the x-axis and 6 inches along the y-axis. There is a V-shaped groove in the fixed jaw of the vise (see picture) to help in holding round objects either vertically or horizontally. I found that very useful. It is a good design feature in my opinion. It even included three different size Allen wrenches for adjustments (see picture). They thought of everything! I highly recommend this vise!
