The usage of bench vise goes back to the early stages of the mechanics as a fragment to fix the components of wood or metal or as a mechanism for applying the forces like vise or micrometer. The bolts are vital to work on the parts while the artisan may bend, saw, hammer, file, mark, assemble, disassemble, bore or brush. Because of their way to fix the bolts, a bench vise can be fixed with rotating or multi-angle options.
The Fixed Bench Vise
In such a bench vise, the closing angles of the jaws aren’t diverse.
The Pivotal Bench Vise
Such bench vises have a mechanism in which screw body is able to make rotations in a horizontal direction with respect to the anchoring mechanism.
These bench vises have the mechanism to fix it at different angles with respect to the vertical axis.
Depending on the usage, the bench vise have the following types;
They are the bolts of bench vise utilized in all kinds of manual mechanical work.
It is a variant of a bench vise that utilized to fix in the machine tools that have to be machined.
It is a type of bench vise utilized by the carpenters to fix the pieces of wood for the duration of work whose teeth can be made of metal or wood.
They are lilted screws with 2 wheels with a shared turning point in form of scissors or pliers. These bench vises are typically not fixed to a workbench but these are used manually.
The Main Components of a Bench Vise
This one makes a part of the body of the bench vise and it doesn’t travel in procedure of fixing a piece of work. Fixed jaw in a bench vise has threaded hole which works as a nut through which the screw rotates and there are 2 parallel protrusions which function as a sustenance and way where the movable jaw moves.
It is a part of the bench vise which slides in a horizontal manner driven by the screw and it functions to apply the force that holds the work piece.
In a bench vise, these are the pieces of steel positioned on jaws’ edge by screws and they’re those which has the work pieces. Their fundamental features are that they can be replaced in case of damage and it could be an issue if the jaws directly touch with the work piece.
It rotates in the nut in fixed jaw and it is at the front end of the lever while its end has a shape which lets it to make rotations in a hole in the movable jaw for its retention without separation.
