Make more with The Maker’s Vise.   We like to spend a lot of time prototyping here at Solar Extraction Technologies, and so we ended up collecting over a dozen vises with different functionalities.  It became our obsession to design a vise using modern engineering materials that would replace our growing vise collection.  We wanted one vise that could do it all!  The result is ‘The Maker’s Vise’.

Maneuverability – The weight is not overbearing like traditional iron vises.   Pick it up, hold it with one hand, set it on your lap, carry it from one workstation to another.  The vise will stay balanced if you place it on its side or on its face.   Bolt it down for heavy duty jobs.  Additionally, our vise is compact for easy storage.

Speed – The Maker’s Vise is fast at everything.  The slider opens and closes the vise incredibly fast compared to traditional vises.   Utilize quick jaw changers to slide 3d printed jaws on and off.  And, don’t forget to order your vise with a quick-handle to rapidly apply torque.

Customization – We’re building a digital design library full of custom jigs and fixtures.  Dive into our library to find that exact jaw or handle shape you need.  Download it, customize it, and print it out, or buy a pre-made shape from us.  Be a hero to other makers and send us your design for a custom part… we’ll post them free for download.

It’s a toolmaker style vise redesigned for the @home DIY hobbyist.
