Weight

feather Table vices are very light tools. The smallest model can weigh as little as 2 lbs (1 kg approx.) and the largest model weighs no more than 8 lbs (4 kg approx.). Since a table vice is a portable tool, it needs to be light so that a user can easily move it around.

Jaw width

jaw width The jaw width is how wide the jaws are from one side to another and is measured by the horizontal distance along the top of the jaw edge.

Smallest available: 40mm (1.5″ approx.)

Largest available: 75mm (3″ approx.)

Jaw opening

jaw opening The jaw opening of a vice is how far the mouth of the jaws can open.

Smallest available: 30mm (1″ approx.)

Largest available: 100mm (4″ approx.)

Throat depth

throat depth The throat depth is how deep the jaws of a vice are and is measured by the vertical distance from the top edge of the jaws down to the top of the screw/slide.

All sizes: 30mm (1″ approx.)

Clamp opening

clamp opening The maximum opening of a table vice’s integrated clamp can also range in size.

Depending on the overall size of the vice, they can usually open up to 20-70mm (1-3″ approx.) wide for mounting to a workbench.

How to choose a table vice

earrings As they are designed for craft work and jewellery making, hobby and jeweller’s vices tend to be the smallest types of table vice. Their jaws are designed to hold small and delicate workpieces and so they are an ideal vice to purchase for these sort of creative tasks.
crockery Multi-angle and regular table vices are capable of holding larger and heavier workpieces, such as china crockery, and so are designed for general use around the home rather than a specific task.
materials The size of vice needed depends on the shape and size of the object to be clamped. To hold larger workpieces, a vice with a greater jaw width/opening would be needed to hold the weight of the object securely without risk of the vice falling off the table or breaking. A larger vice can also be useful as the extra jaw width provides greater support over the material’s surface.
