Self-centering vises are workholding devices that use two jaws that move in equal and opposite directions to automatically adjust your workpiece to the center. When centered with your milling machine spindle, self-centering vises help improve precision and repeatability for boring, drilling, tapping and finishing applications by keeping workpieces in a secure position as they are machined. Self-centering vises can be used for both horizontal and vertical machining and can be used with conventional and CNC machines.
