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.

After a few attempts of making my own nut vice by cutting in to a couple normal vices I broke down and ordered this. I’m very happy I did. It’s a very high quality product and gives plenty of room to file the nut in all angles

With rubber inserts, this vise can also act to steadily secure a fret as the tang is filed off flush.

A very solid little vice

By

Verified Buyer


I dithered about buying this. It seemed a bit extravagant to buy a special vice just for nut work and I find myself spending more and more on specialist tools, some of which just don't work for me (for example, I have still to get the fret nibbler to work). The nut and saddle vice is a standard vice that has been modified by bolting on a couple of new and extended jaw facings.
However in the few days I have had it I have found it very useful and not just for nut work.
