Veritas Quick-Release Front Vice
Using the same quick-release mechanism as the Veritas tail vise, this front vise has a simple on-off cam lever to engage or disengage the Acme-threaded screw. The body is ductile iron with zinc-alloy endplates, steel shafts and guide rods, and a maple handle. Mounting instructions and hardware included. This front vise mounts easily to the underside of a workbench.
This vise comes with Square-Plus bits #2 and #3 which are not very common in most European countries. If you do not want to exchange the screws delivered with this vise we recommend to order the matching Square-Plus bits
Veritas Quick-Release Sliding Tail Vice
Installing a tail vise is notoriously difficult, usually requiring a section of workbench to be cut away and rebuilt around a complicated vise mechanism. Not so with this one. It can be quickly incorporated into a new bench construction or easily retrofitted to an existing bench without major surgery.
The end plates are symmetrical, so you can install the T-handle and quick-release lever in a right- or left-handed orientation, allowing the vise to be mounted at either end of the bench.

Veritas Inset Vise
This low-profile vise is similar to a wagon vise in function, but in a compact, self-contained form for easy installation in a work surface, adding a permanent, adjustable dog right where it’s needed.
Designed to hold work between its single jaw and an external stop such as a bench dog, it has a clamping capacity that is limited only by the size and dog-hole spacing of your work surface. The knurled stainless-steel toggle handle turns a 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) diameter Acme-threaded steel rod to move the jaw in a 4 inch (100 mm) range of travel. The 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) tall, 13/16 inch (20 mm) wide jaw has two jaw-mounting positions spaced 3-7/8 inch (86 mm) apart, for compatibility with dog-hole spacing up to 7-3/4 inch (197 mm). A keyway in the jaw face accepts a #10 nut for affixing custom shop-built jaws. When the vise is not in use, the jaw can be removed whenever you need an unobstructed work surface.
The vise installs flush in a stepped mortise in any surface at least 1-1/4 inch (32 mm) thick (instructions, template and mounting hardware provided). Constructed of machined steel castings and anodized aluminum extrusions.
