The IRWIN Woodworking vise is perfect for those who need a vise they can move without concern you can\u2019t bolt this unit down, you can use its clamp-design to attach it to any table surface up to 2in thick. While other vises bolt onto tables with up to four bolts, this solution uses a single metal clamp. As such, we would avoid this offering for any heavy-duty projects, but rather recommend it as a tool for any handyperson\u2019s work bag, along with your other best tools. If you\u2019re in the need of a more stable shop clamp we recommend checking our Best Bench Vice guide.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Irwin tools clamp vise 226303\r\nIRWIN offers an easy-to-install clamp-on vise that can be conveniently moved between work areas with ease, while also providing integrated pipe clamps and an anvil horn.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nReviews indicate this is a favourite for weapons smiths to model ship builders showing a high regard for the clamp among both people doing professional work and hobbyists. With only enough force to hold lighter projects it\u2019s ill advised to try to use this vice for heavy work but when it comes to light work you\u2019ll find it competing with even the Wilton 11104 Bench 4 Inch Opening.\r\nDesign\r\nBeing small doesn\u2019t mean it isn\u2019t feature-packed, as the vise also features integrated pipe grips and a little anvil shaping horn. Its integrated pipe jaws keep the workpiece steady as you work. The anvil might be a bit small for most jobs, as well as the 3 jaw, but verified customers found it suitable for light duty like woodworking. It is important to note that the clamp-design of this IRWIN Tools 3\u201d Bench Vice does indeed make it portable, but it also makes it slightly less stable on surfaces then a mounted piece like the Yost Vises 445 Utility Combination. With a throat depth of roughly 1.8in and jaw width of 2in it has a wide jaw capacity as long as it can fit into the 2 inch clamp.\r\nValue\r\nIt\u2019s cheaper than the Heavy Duty Forged 360 Swivel Locking Desktop and also lighter but when it comes to the work it can\u2019t quite compare to the the ones bolted to the work table nore can it put down the same amount of force, so it\u2019s recommended that you consider the amount of force you\u2019ll need before buying. IRWIN also has a Satisfaction Guarantee warranty and says to \u201ccontact us if your unsatisfied.\u201d\r\nIrwin tools clamp vise 226303 Wrap Up\r\nIt would be exaggeration if I were to tell you the Irwin Tools Clamp Vise 226303 was the ultimate preface vice but the same is true for any vice, when it comes to light whiet portable vices the reviews and by extension the customers will argue it\u2019s safely among the best vices available.
