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.

A very solid little vice

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.

Excellent vise.

By

Verified Buyer


This vise is an excellent product for nut and saddle, or other small objects that need to be held. The jaws provide plenty of clearance to work sharp angles on the workpiece as well with the thin jaws.

Great quality!

Haven’t used it yet, but it holds a nut blank very well. It will be so much better than the small bench vice I have been using. There’s so much more clearance!

Very versatile

By

Verified Buyer


I have several bench mounted vises this size and on up. The specific way this vise holds things like nuts and bridge saddles up and out of the way of the clamp makes this vise very useful for finer detail oriented work.

I'm glad I bought this vice. Watch the StewMac video - it does exactly what they say it does. I cut and shaped this nut all on that vice.
