The PanaVise 400 is a great wood carving vise for your light to medium wood carving. Using the 337 and 437 Fixturing Head Attachments, you can easily attach your project with screws. With a quick turn of the tightening knob, you can re-position your project quickly. I highly recommend having this vise in your work shop. You’ll use it for many aspects of your carving. I even use it to secure my carving while I paint. Instructors Harley and Midge Schmitgen use these vises in their classes. Get yours here from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2gR0kjl
Using a vise while carving allows you to keep both hands on the tool for safe, controlled carving. Made from 3/8 inch plate steel. The clamping area is precisely chamfered to grip tightly to the ball, giving the vise fantastic holding power. You can use your mallet to remove wood without your carving moving. Then, with the simple twist of the handle, you get unlimited project positioning. The vise is Powder Coated to give it an attractive, tough scratch resistant finish. Once you use this vise, you’ll say; “why didn’t I get this years ago”.
This vise was designed by me, Ev Ellenwood (Woodcarver & Author). During my many years of carving, I found many carvers weren’t happy with the devices available to hold their projects while carving. I myself was always frustrated because I wasn’t able to quickly and securely position the object I was carving . Because of this frustration I designed and developed the “Super Vise”.
I’ve sold hundreds of these vices and have never had one returned and have received nothing but positive comments by those using it. I designed this vice with only the best quality materials and the machining is done by professional toolmakers.
Although this vise with designed for woodcarving, it works great for any craft where sturdy holding and quick positioning is required.
I’ve been in the business for over 20 years. I’m an award-winning woodcarver and author. I stand behind all products I offer here. Although it states here I don’t accept returns, if you’re having any problems, just give me a call or drop me an email and I’ll take care of you.
