The Garrett Wade Ultimate Versatile Vise can be fully oriented in two axis at the same time - giving you infinitely greater options in positioning. With versatility unequaled by any other shop vise available, the Versatile Vise is as useful for general shop and metal work as it is for the woodworker, patternmaker and carver. This unique vise is highly recommended for all working shops – it will pay for itself 100% the very first time you use its full capabilities.

Your Versatile Vise is fully functional in all aspects right out of the box. But we have developed a new rotation-locking improvement that makes it even more efficient. Although it was logistically impossible to implement this improvement at the factory without driving the cost to you significantly higher, we decided it should be made available to all users. Therefore, your shipment will include some tooling and an additional locking knob at no additional cost, so you can make this change if you desire to do so. These changes require simple drilling & tapping using the included tooling & detailed instructions. Again, it is not necessary at all, but we like it – so we want to make it available. Click Here to download a PDF of the full Rotation Locking Kit instructions. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you make good use of the vise in your work. (Additional air shipping surcharges apply.)

Do Everything Vise
Reviewed By:   (Houston, Minnesota) 
This vise really does it all. As a budding gunsmith I find this vise is able to hold pieces where I need them to work at the best angles. It handles all sizes of parts and enables me to really put a lot of pressure on when I need to. Great shop tool.

Rotation Locking Knob Should Be Factory Installed
Reviewed By:   (Morristown, NJ) 
The description says, "Your Versatile Vise is fully functional in all aspects right out of the box." Well, no it isn't. You've got to install a Rotation Locking Bolt and Knob, which is no piece of cake. You just shouldn't have to do this on a pricey high-end vise. G-W provides the drill and tap, but you need a tap handle, cutting oil, and a LOT of patience to tap a large threaded hole through a 3/4" hunk of cast iron. Once done, the vise is fine and although G-W says [this change] "is not necessary at all," it absolutely is if you're doing any work with small items or hobby stuff.

Unique Order
Reviewed By:   (Oxford, Maryland) 
This vise is as advertised, rather universal in its adjustability and, thanks to the furnished setscrew and tools to install it, most useful to a carver or model maker. Other heavy duty uses are obviously possible. This vise is available elsewhere, but not with the extra adjustment screw, which is truly a necessity for easy positioning of the angle of the jaws. The work of drilling and tapping the extra set screw was not difficult with all but the driver furnished. The furnished drill bit was defective (improperly sharpened), but served well as a final sizing prior to tapping. The tap was not defective. My suggestion would be to drill a smaller pilot hole prior to the final sizing drill. I did cheat a bit by clamping the vise to my drill press table and using the drill press to exactly drill the pilot and final hole. The vise is mechanically a five and works smoothly throughout its adjustment range. The reason for a four rating was the rather crude finishing work on some surfaces- no effect on the function though. This vise has replaced the other vises as my first use tool for holding pieces to be worked on from multiple angles.

Good but could be better
Reviewed By:   (Anchorage, AK) 
I like the vise for all the usual reasons. I make rustic wood furniture so I use limbs and saplings. This vise without any round rubber grips to hold onto the round pieces of wood is not particularly useful. So I encourage the manufacturer to make soft grips for this great vise.

Ultimate Versatile Vise
Reviewed By:   (Lancaster, Ohio) 
The vise was purchased to mount on my portable woodworking table. The 360 degree turning capabilities allows for multiple angles of use. It appears well built with no problems to address at this time. I mounted wooden jaw pads which I found easy to attach with the pre-drilled holes. I am very pleased with the purchase.
