This vice is easy to install in any bench with a top thickness at least 31.7mm (instructions, template and mounting hardware provided). The vice fits flush to your bench top and functions in a similar manner to a wagon vice. If your bench doesn’t have a tail vice then the Veritas Inset Vice coupled with a row of dog holes and a bench dog is exactly what you need. A knurled stainless-steel toggle handle turns a 13mm diameter Acme-threaded steel rod giving a travel of up to 100mm to a moving plate. A 13mm tall dog locates into this plate in one of two positions. Two positions allowing you to have dog holes on your bench top as far apart as 195mm. When the vice is not in use, removing the jaw leaves you with an unobstructed work surface. Constructed of machined steel castings and anodized aluminium extrusions. Made in Canada

Inset ViceGot to admit was expecting a lot from this vice as Veritas has such a good reputation and I already own a few of their tools and am extremely happy with all of them. The vice keeps the bench top tidy and doesn't interfere in any way, the only thing I'm not happy with is the clamping jaw which keeps popping out, thank god it's not my only vice.

A good way to turn a standard table into a light workbenchI am doing some small scale woodworking and modelling in my living room. Hence, aesthetics are very important. This vice turned out to be perfect to be installed in a table top without making it look bulky. Small handle makes it hard to bump into it when going near the table. Very elegant!
