Nut and Saddle Vise

About This Item

A better way to hold nuts and saddles for easier, faster shaping.

Sure, most of us already have a shop vise. And for a long time, you've probably used yours to hold nuts and saddles for filing and shaping. But you've also noticed that your vise jaws get in the way when you're trying to file the top of that nut or saddle, so you're constantly repositioning the work in the jaws.

We considered the problem and designed a special vise that gives you the clearance you need for an easier and more efficient job.

The custom jaws are extra tall, with steep angles for easier access to your work. The end of the vise is beveled for extra relief, too. The 2"-wide steel jaws are hardened for durability and specially undercut to stay parallel under pressure, holding the nut or saddle uniformly without slippage.

For other jobs, the jaws open to 2-7/16", making it versatile for gripping all kinds of small work. This is a well-made, heavy little portable steel vise with a 2" x 5-5/8" footprint; you can clamp it to the edge of your workbench, or into your larger shop vise.

The Nut and Saddle Vise is included in the Essential Nut Making Tool Kit, which has all the basic tools you'll need for shaping, string-spacing, slotting and fitting string nuts like a pro.

This Nut and Saddle Vise, which you hold in a larger bench vise, is ideal for holding *any* small part, not just nuts or saddles. The jaws allow for access with files or jeweler's saws for making or altering any of a number of small parts. So don't be fooled by the name -- I mainly repair woodwind and brass instruments and this vise is fantastic in my shop!

Perfect solution for nuts and saddles

Great specialty vise. Made in Taiwan (not the mainland) so the quality is fine. Nut slotting has never been easier!

Amazing addition to the shop

By

Verified Buyer


I already had a vise to shape nuts and saddles. I didn't think I needed an upgrade. But the more I looked at what I had and how this one was different, I realized this might be a great upgrade. After the first try I had so much more precise control and ability to fine-tune what I was doing. I typically don't review things but this one was especially unique in that for a little money the upside was tremendous.

This little vise is Awesome. I use this thing for so much more than nut & saddle work. One thing I use it for is to hold my cut inlays so I can finish file them This vise is worth its weight in gold.

Perfect for nut filing

By

Perfect for filing nuts as well as other tasks that might be too small for a 6" bench vise. Built like an anvil and highly mobile. Fits in my medium sized toolbox for easy transport.

Problem resolved no hassel

I have a few of these nut and saddle vises but the oldest one had one of the jaws break recently. I made one out of maple and it worked pretty good for a while but I wasn't happy. I called stewmac to buy one of the replacement jaws only to find that they are not available. The customer service rep said that they wanted to make sure we were happy with our purchases and he replaced my entire vise! That is the way to handle your business! Top notch company and will continue to outfit our shop with Stewmac tools and products.

I aggree with many of the previous reviews

I aggree with many of the previous reviews in that this is a solid vice, well balanced, however quality control is marginal. There was a Made in Taiwan transfer in the bag - I was expecting this item to be USA made. It is an overdue addition to the guitar customising toolkit. 3 1/2 stars.
