Magnetic Jaw Pads

We recently covered magnetic jaw pads for bench vises, but what about that metal-jawed vise on your woodworking bench? If you need a wood-faced vice on your bench, these magnetic jaw pads will cover those wood-marring metal jaws with a less damaging material — wood.

Strong magnets back these wood-faced pads so you don’t have to worry about the pads moving or slipping out of place as you tighten the vise.  You can get ’em in several sizes, from 1″ wide by 4″, 5″, or 6″, to 2-1/2″ wide by 6″, 8″, 9″, or 10″.

Depending on the size, expect to pay $6 to $9 for a pair of these wood-faced vise-jaw pads.

    If it’s a wood working vise, why not just screw some wood faces on the jaws and not mess with it anymore?

    Teacher is right!

    Woodworking vises usually get set into the end (tail) oe front (face) of the bench – allowing enough room fo maple faces – such that the rear vise/face sits flush with the bench.

    If your inclined you can rout some “V” grooves into the wood in both the vertical and horzontal direction to help hold round objects.

    What I did not say was that the vise picture was apparently installed by a photographer not a woodworker – because it sits proud of the bench face – and seems to have been installed somewhat in from the end of the bench.
