Wilton Bench Vises
WILTON® bench vises provide secure, stable clamping surfaces that mount to your home or professional shop workbench. There are several different choices available, including shop vises, Super-Junior® clamp-on vises, mechanic options and machinist varieties. Tradesman vises are also available, featuring a unique rear-anchored nut that delivers even pressure and pull during use, increasing the heavy-duty bench vise's durability.
Bench vises work similarly to Wilton machine vises and wood vises, clamping down on materials and holding them in place while you work. Many attach securely to the workbench itself with dual-locking nuts. This increases the tolerance and strength the Wilton bench vises have when clamping wood or metal materials. As a result, they are capable of holding larger pieces securely than Wilton C-Clamps or wood vises. Once the material is in place, the metal and woodworking bench vises let you saw, cut, chisel or drill without moving the piece. They also work well for keeping two smaller pieces perfectly still while the glue holding them together dries.
Many Wilton bench vises boast qualities that increase durability and lifespan. Most feature steel, iron or cast-iron construction for durability. Some have a design that includes a fully-enclosed nut and spindle that prevents contaminants from entering the device. For trouble-free service, many have lifetime lubrication, which means the grease is permanently sealed within the device. There are also heavy-duty bench vise options with powder-coat finishes that help resist scratches and rust.
Whether you're holding pipe steady while you cut it down to size or drilling holes through two pieces of lumber, the jaws are essential to your Wilton bench vise. Like many Wilton wood vises and machine vises, the max opening of the jaws and their depth varies from vise to vise. Many feature replaceable jaws which let you use the same vise with many different types of materials.
Get the stability and security you need when planing, cutting or chiseling through metal or wood with the right Wilton bench vises. Available for both professional and home shops, there are plenty of options available.
