The USA made GyroJaw for once and for all solves the difficult problem of firmly clamping angled or tapered work pieces in a bench or mechanic's vise - and at a very modest cost. The solid steel stud with a rounded surface rests against the vise jaw when you close up, while automatically moving to the position and angle that produces solid direct pressure on the piece being clamped. The 2 x 3-1/4" mating face uses an indestructible nylon/glass fiber combination with just enough give to make it non-slip.

This really works, and we believe that every shop that uses a metal vise will find it indispensable. It's a very simple tool. Try it - you'll be hooked! One often works fine, but having two on hand is better. Shown here with the Versatile Vise.

Most of us have faced the difficult challenge of clamping angled or tapered work pieces in a metal bench or mechanic's vise. There are a few patternmaker-style vises that can help, but their faces only rotate in one axis - side to side (left to right) - and they are usually very expensive. Invented out of sheer necessity by two woodworking brothers, the GyroJaw works like an articulating vise face and solves this age-old problem simply and handily - and at a very modest cost. It holds even round stock with great firmness (see the slot molded in the mating face) vertically, horizontally, or anywhere in between.

  • At last!

    Philip, 3/10/2016 I've been waiting for something like this for years! Frequently I need to clamp all kinds of non-parallel objects and to change the angle to bring the work surface into play with the tool as work progresses . GyroJaw sure beats the wooden wedges and other improvised gizmos that I used to rely on. And it now enables my standard bench vise to function even better for such purposes than the patternmaker's vise that I've also used all along. Using it in vises with smooth jaw faces may result in minor play when an object is held in a certain position but if that happens, a thick piece of leather between the jaw and the steel ball will make things rock-steady.
  • A Great Accessory

    Michael Young, 12/27/2014 I purchased this universal" holder for a friend and got two just because the tool looked interesting and the price was right. My carving projects are seldom rectangular and easy to hold. Instead they are rounded or angular. I usually make cauls to hold the pieces and may have to make several for any one piece. This simple piece with some added leather or rubber padding (held to the Gyro Jaw face with rubber paper cement) has been amazingly effective. Add this Gyro Jaw accessory to the Universal Vise shown and project time is mostly spent on doing the project rather than making pieces to hold the workpiece. Buy two. I now have three. Two at a time can be used effectively in larger capacity vises!"
  • Works as Advertised

    J Kanicki, 10/19/2014 Purchased the GyroJaw for support in hand planing tapered furniture and cabinet parts. First, it clamps just as described and hold the tapered pieces nicely. However, the same function that allows the jaw to rotate to take up the taper space continues to be in play on the vertical axis - meaning you clamp it steady, but it will rotate up and down on the pivot bearing. Clamp a 1/2 thick strip on the vise jaw w/o the GyroJaw and problem is solved."
  • Description Not Accurate

    Jeff, 1/22/2014 I read the description four times. It says they sell them in pairs so I ordered 1", not "2" pairs. When the order arrived, there was only one in the box. Still a great items it is just the the description was a tad misleading. I can live with it but they need to rewrite the ad copy. "
  • Ease of Use

    Ray, 1/6/2014 It works as advertised, although It took me a little time to figure out the best way to hold it in my hand prior to setting it properly in the vise. Once I did that, it was fine. Good product!!!
  • Great Product

    Ken, 8/13/2013 Made a set of wood and leather grip plates, and this works great without out any problems. I'd recommend to friends.
  • EXCELENTE TORNILLO DE BANCO

    GEORGE, 7/6/2013 Es una excelente herramienta de trabajo, la puede transportar a cualquier lugar, me gusto mucho y buen manejo sobre todo para algunos trabajos que son deformes y con estos topes, uno lo soluciona todo, muy bueno.

  • SIMPLE IS BEST!

    Barry Dube, 12/19/2011 Leonardo da Vinci said it best: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication"- and many centuries later-the Gyrojaw proves it, in spades! With it, I no longer have to jury-rig "adaptive helpers" when trying to clamp oddly shaped parts or wood projects.. seems to be made of industrial grade material, as I've already used it hard, and so far-it rocks! "
  • LIKE MAGIC!!!!

    bennyboyk9, 5/16/2011 I have the vise, so I know the jaws are smooth, so when I saw the steel stud of the gyrojaw against that smooth vise jaw, on that angle, it didn't seem possible. Let me tell you, it works better than you can imagine. Also the material gyrojaw is made of, will not leave any kind of mark on the piece being clamped. If you own a vise, the gyrojaw should be sitting next to it.
