Veritas - Veritas- Twin-Screw Vise
The Veritas Twin-Screw Vise can clamp stock vertically in the center of its jaws, making it easier to dovetail wide boards.
Like the other vises that were tested, the Veritas Twin-Screw Vise can be used as either a front vise or an end vise. Although it doesn’t have a quick-release feature, it can clamp stock vertically in the center of its jaws, making it easier to dovetail wide boards, which is a compelling benefit. This vise hardware has a 12-in. opening capacity. It has the biggest clamping capacity out of the vises that were tested, clamping up to 16-in.-wide boards between screws, and it does not rack. The front jaw can be skewed for tapered parts or to overcome racking force if you clamp something outside the screws. It received an excellent rating for ease of use, although its two handles can be a nuisance at times. The Veritas Twin-Screw Vise was awarded the author’s choice for best overall vise hardware.
