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.)

Very Handy Vise
Reviewed By:   (Oak Point, Texas) 
Bought this vise for my husband for Fathers Day and it has already been installed on the workbench and put to good use. The name says it all "Ultimate Versatile Vise. Great size and not sure there is a position that it won't be able to handle.

Revised Review
Reviewed By:   (Frazier Park, CA) 
A few weeks ago I posted an uncomplimentary review of this product, as mine apparently suffered from a serious casting problem. It literally fell apart under very modest clamping pressure. In a few days I was surprised and pleased to receive a concerned phone call from Garret Wade Customer Service, during which I described the problem in greater detail. I had no expectation of any kind of resolution and requested no consideration, simply assuming I had gotten one of the 1% of failures that can always be expected in any manufacturing process. To my delighted surprise I have been sent a new replacement, courteously pre-drilled, and working perfectly. I've only had a chance to use it but once since it arrived, but I am most appreciative and glad to have it. This concern for the customer shows Garret Wade's full support of their products, and it buys a lot of loyalty. Thank you.

Versatile Vise Set Up
Reviewed By:   (Waterford, Michigan) 
I elected to add the additional set screw rotational feature to the vise and used a drill press set up to drill and tap the hole. I found the cast iron to be very hard and slow drilling in spite of drilling a pilot hole first. The tapping procedure was equally slow and time consuming due to the quality of cast iron. Once completed it looks like a good feature with a more flexibility for small detailed work which I like and the reason for the purchase. I would like to see plastic or soft jaw covers to reduce damage to sensitive material that are clamped in the vise jaws.

Vice
Reviewed By:   (Hallowell, Maine) 
Real nice! Only issue was the surprise, I had to drill and tap one of the locking handles. They provided the drill and tap and instructions. Factory should do this! Great vice to work with (I carve).

Disappointed
Reviewed By:   (Frazier Park, CA) 
Like many of the other reviewers, I assembled and mounted the vise with great expectations. Like them, too, I found the drill and tap to be useless, but once work-ready, I found that the guide screw stopped working once the jaws were open more than 2" and I could simply pull them apart by hand and withdraw the whole screw with the outer jaw attached. After a dozen or so light duty jobs that required no more than a 2" opening, the pivot set screw housing underneath the main guide screw frame simply fell apart into three pieces. The set screw itself remained in place but the metal component simply disintegrated. I very much like the basic design and concept, but the metal in mine is just porridge.
