Topic tags/keywords: aluminum vise tool

I’m pretty sure this is not for woodworking but am not sure what it would be used for.

It is made with aluminum and the middle piece can be removed so you could press something in the round end, it looks to me.

Any ideas?

It is an old Zyliss universal clamp made in Switzerland. I have one and it is a great little vice. I do not think they are made any more and I found mine on Ebay.

Thanks for posting all.

Tex, we know what your doing today. Don’t drink and woodwork!! lol

Wayne, I have been using it some but thought it was intended for something else. Who knew?

Tom you nailed it. Wow! I never dreamed this would be used for woodworking.

I searched google imaged for zyliss clamp and ended up finding a vise called z-Vise2…..wow… this little aluminum sucker sells for 2 to 3 hundred bucks. the little round deal is used to hold a drill.

It can even be used as a lathe.

Here are the pics on google vise

Your missing a few of the parts. They are a handy lirttle vise, I have two sets. Use mine quite a lot really. I use mine most often for holding chair or table legs while shaping them by hand. They still make them.

Hi Les, I have not really used it much. Being made of aluminum and having the piece that is made to hold the drill (which I didn’t know that was what it was) I thought it was for a specific task and I might break it.

Now that I’ve seen some of the things it can do, I will start using it. I may buy some of the accessories.

It just felt light and like it wasn’t a serious tool.

I paid $50.00 for mine a year ago. There are two on Ebay right now for under $100.
