The most versatile vice I've ever seen, this thing is awesome

Reviewed in the United States on February 19, 2024

Having a work shop means having a good vice or two. I've got one large bench flush mounted antique one and a standard newer bench top style. Both are work horses but have limits in size or direction of material placed. Seeing this certainly was intriguing Multiple angles, 360 swivel and adjustable in every direction. This thing is the bees knees.

Out of the box, it takes a few seconds to figure out how to get the bottom clamp set right but other than that it's ready to roll. Working mostly with wood the extra slip over pads are great. I love that they are two sided so you basically have 3 types of jaws. Small pins keep them in place. The jaw opens and closes like butter. I did a one screw temporary mount to test this and had a great time with all the different materials this can handle, all in different directions. This thing is versatile.

Using it - you can lock it in a few set positions with the locking pin ( or just leave the pin in the "unlocked" slot. Or loosen it up and get to any angle you want in a matter of seconds. Quick clamp lock and you're ready to cut.

It's well made and I have no concerns about the build quality at all. I was worried that the ball is greased and in a wood work shop saw dust was going to be an issue. A quick flip and two allen screws and the clamp are holding the bottom on. Took those off in 15 seconds so there is a way to clean the ball and regrease if needed. This puts a smile on your face because it's easy to use and so well designed. The jaw variations alone is a great example of real work thought and testing. All sorts of pipes and diameters can fit into those.

This is a great vice, heavy duty, brilliant design features and will get used more than the other two vices I have all day long. At this time, I can't think of one improvement - how often can you say that about a product?

If you use a vice, this is the best upgrade you'll ever get. Also the perfect gift for someone who has everything in a workshop.

A Versatile Medium-Capacity Solution for Precision Work

Reviewed in the United States on March 1, 2024

The Work IQ Tools IQ Vise offers impressive versatility and functionality in a medium-capacity vise. Unlike conventional vises with fixed parallel jaws, this vise stands out for its unique design, reminiscent of the renowned cast iron Pattern Maker vise. While not as versatile as its predecessor, which was mounted beneath the bench, the Work IQ vise excels in its own right, offering comparable performance at a more affordable price point.

Crafted from durable aluminum and steel, this vise operates smoothly and exerts significant clamping force, ensuring a secure workpiece grip. Its removable vise pads, featuring grooves and soft padding, easily accommodate pipes and other irregularly shaped objects. Additionally, the vise jaws can be swapped out for various insert options, enhancing its adaptability to different tasks.

The inclusion of a comprehensive user manual and smart packaging further demonstrates the manufacturer's commitment to quality and user satisfaction. While the vise can be mounted directly to a benchtop using screws, I opted to mount it on an L-shaped wooden base for added mobility and versatility. This setup allows me to clamp the vise to different parts of the bench using clamps, expanding its usability.

This vise offers exceptional flexibility with features like a locking pin for fixed horizontal or vertical positioning and adjustable access positions for diagonal or pitched configurations. However, I found that the cam lever clamp needs to be engaged even in fixed positions to minimize shaking.

While the Work IQ vise may come at a higher price than traditional woodworking vises, its unparalleled versatility makes it a valuable addition to any workshop. As a woodworker, I appreciate its ability to tackle specialized tasks and handle challenging workpieces, complementing rather than replacing my existing bench vise.

The World's Most Versatile Vise™

The IQ Vise™, the World’s Most Versatile Vise, was designed for the DIYer, Craftsman, Hobbyist, Maker, and Trade Professional to help them do more – easier, faster, and smarter. The IQ Vise is part of a system of products that solves problems, eliminates workarounds, and provides an extra set of hands, thus becoming the ultimate workbench partner capable of transforming your workspace.

With its articulating ball and socket design, the IQ Vise both articulates and rotates, allowing the user to find the perfect position to complete a task. An example of jobs made easier by this revolutionary adjustability include sharpening a mower blade and working on a bicycle. The ball and socket design allows the user to position the blade at the perfect angle for sharpening and enables quick rotation for sharpening the other side without having to remove the blade from the vise. When working on a bicycle, simply lay the vise flat, which allows enough clearance from the workbench to firmly secure the bike frame away from the bench. This same position allows for working on lawncare tools like string trimmers and chainsaws. These tasks are either not possible or very difficult to perform on a standard bench vise.

The Quick Cam™ feature allows for easy locking and unlocking of the articulating ball, facilitating quick and precise positioning for work adjustments and finding the perfect angle for the job. An example of the usefulness of this feature is when sanding a board or any wooden project, it is useful to hold the workpiece firmly, but to also be able to rotate it to allow sanding on all sides. The Quick Cam provides the ability to reposition the work quickly and easily, while also locking it firmly in place in any position.

When working on tough jobs that require a lot of force, the patented IQ Lok™ pin can be inserted in 8 different working positions, preventing movement during projects requiring a high-torque value, up to 130 ft-lbs. The versatility provided by the articulation and rotation of ball and socket, combined with the high-torque capability provided by the IQ Lok design, make the IQ Vise capable of completing hundreds of jobs faster and easier.

The IQ Vise System offers several gripping options to expand its capability to work on countless materials, shapes, and sizes. The vise has steel jaw plates that provide a secure grip on multiple materials and are magnet friendly for use with jaw covers available on the market.

The IQ Vise includes the IQ Vise Jaws™ – Flex-Fit™ which provide upgraded gripping for a wide variety of jobs. One side features non-marring textured rubber which provides a superior grip on wood, metal, and any other flat material or object. The reverse side is also coated in rubber and features 4 vertical grooves, 3 horizonal grooves, and a 160 angle groove for holding multiple shapes and sizes like small parts, copper, PVC, and black iron pipe, threaded rod, bicycle frames, and many, many others.

There are 4 additional IQ Vise Jaws available, and all are double-sided to help find the perfect grip for the job. These capability-expanding IQ Vise Jaws include Leather, Pipe-Fit™, Sure-Fit™, and Woodworking, giving you the ability to work on a wide range of materials and projects.

The IQ Vise is also compatible with the with the IQ Connect™ Hands-Free Accessory System With 3 Bench Mounts, sold separately. The vise has four Integrated Ports that allow for quick connection of these accessories, including a 180 lumen Work Light, 5-inch Magnifying Glass, and a Cell Phone Holder. These accessories provide an extra hand on your workbench and enhance your working conditions.

The IQ Vise and system of IQ Vise Jaws and IQ Connect Hands-Free Accessories will transform your workshop and become a capable and versatile project partner.
