rotating jaws Their built-in pipe jaws are on the reverse side of the cylindrical slide and can then be rotated when needed.

rotating pipe jaws The pipe jaws are also versatile in allowing the pipe to be held either vertically or horizontally.
multi-purpose rotating vice The rotating jaws are also beneficial for quickly adjusting the position of a workpiece during tasks such as filing or sandpapering an object. When all sides of the object need to be smoothed down, the jaws can be quickly moved and locked, eliminating the task of constantly repositioning the workpiece within the vice jaws.

Reversible vices
