About the Milling Vise

The most convenient way to hold small parts for milling is with the milling vise. Milling vises are different from other machine vises in that they are designed to hold the movable jaw down while clamping, eliminating any chance for the jaw to lift. It is also accurately made. A cheap drill press vise is almost useless on a milling machine because it can’t be accurately aligned to the machine.

A milling vise is the first accessory most mill owners purchase. It will handle a large percentage of the part-holding duties when milling and is easy to use.

The Sherline milling vise is sized just right to be the perfect working companion to the Sherline milling machine. The jaws are 2.00″ (50.8mm) wide by 1.00″ (25.4mm) deep and open a full 2.00″ (50.8mm). The fixed jaw has both a horizontal and vertical “V” groove to facilitate holding round bar stock. The vise includes two clamps for use in attaching it to the milling machine. These clamps are the same as the 4-jaw hold-down set.

The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.


Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
