When you want to firmly hold something that’s easily crushed, your vise can use all the help it can get. We’ve featured vise-jaw covers like Soff Jaws on Toolmonger before, but Wilton designed these jaw covers with cutouts so they can better grip round objects — they should work great for holding wood, tubing, soft metal widgets, and irregularly shaped doohickeys.
Wilton molds these yellow vise-jaw covers out of polyurethane, a material that’ll hold softer materials without marring or crushing. Magnetic backs hold these covers securely over most 3″ to 6″ vise jaws.
Pick up a set for $13 to $19, but don’t bother going to Wilton’s site to find their jaw covers — Wilton doesn’t let you search its site for accessories.
