Versa Vise: The Ultimate Versatile Vise
The Garrett Wade Ultimate Versatile Vise can be fully oriented in two axes at the same time, giving you infinitely greater options in positioning. The versa vise head can fully rotate around its vertical mount, and with its unique offset arm, it can also pivot around horizontal axes. It can even be remounted horizontally to hold your work over the edge of your workbench. With versatility unequaled by any other shop vise available, the Versatile Vise is as useful for general shop and metalwork as it is for the woodworker, patternmaker and carver. This unique workbench vise is highly recommended for all working shops - it will pay for itself 100% the very first time you use its full capabilities. We are now shipping our newest version with improved castings.

Quality Workbench Vise
This is a tale that requires a bit of history telling: Many decades ago, a small vise company in Ohio made a bench-top cast-iron vise that could be oriented on two axis simultaneously. We loved it. Our customers loved it. But sadly, it disappeared.
Then some years ago, a similar versa vise appeared on the market, but it was not the same. It was a decent tool but was a shadow of its former self because it was limited to one-axis orientation. What was missing was an Accessory Mount that transferred the "Frog into a Prince." We knew this, but apparently no one else figured it out because no improvement ever appeared. So we resolved to do it ourselves. Months later we have succeeded at creating the ideal workbench vise with the invaluable help of historical Flintlock builder and restorer, Jerry Crawford.
Garrett Wade's endeavor to bring the Ultimate Versatile Vise to our customers would not have been a success without the critical contributions of our new friend, and innovative craftsman, Jerry Crawford of Colorado.
Jerry is a retired woodworker and contemporary builder of 17th and 18th-century black powder rifles, as well as an inspired inventor and all-around ingenious tinkerer. History buffs in the black powder community or those who have visited the annual turkey shoot of the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association in Friendship, Indiana are probably aware of Jerry's reputation as a skillful craftsman and creative innovator, and his generous help and guidance were critical to the success of our versa vise effort.
Thanks, Jerry, for your vital assistance in the development of the Ultimate Versatile Vise, which we hope will bring many woodworkers great satisfaction.
