The jaws on the vise close very smoothly due to the delrin cam. It's 360 degree rotation allows for tying at a variety of angles. The jaws may also be adjusted to various angles which makes this vise extremely versatile. Included is a c-clamp along with the pedestal, which allows for stationary attachment if desired. Made in the USA.
