This is the vise I use for hand sanding. I also use it for gluing up my knives and for file work.
The vise can be rotated 360 degrees and locked in any position with the back hand wheel. The vise is held in the 90 degree position by the cotter-less hitch pin. This pin can be placed in three positions which tilt the vise to downward positions. This helps in getting the best angle for hand sanding. The vise also has cutouts for placing the blade across for sanding in other positions. It's also great for holding the knife while gluing up the handle or engraving.
The vise jaws are pine and provide a very good grip on the blade. The wooden vise jaw inserts have steel bars installed to keep the hand wheel screws from damaging them. The wood vise jaw inserts hold up very well in my testing.
All bolts are 3/8" diameter.
Mounting bolts/nuts and washers are included but not pictured.
