The term "Cam Action Quick Drill Vise" typically refers to a specific type of vise used for holding and securing objects during drilling or other machining operations.
A drill vise is a mechanical device designed to grip and stabilize a workpiece while it is being drilled. It ensures that the workpiece remains in place, preventing it from moving or spinning during drilling, which can result in inaccurate or damaged holes.
The "Cam Action" in the term refers to the mechanism used to quickly and easily adjust the position of the vise jaws. A cam is a rotating or sliding piece that imparts motion to another part. In the case of a cam action quick drill vise, it means that the vise jaws can be opened or closed rapidly using a cam mechanism. This allows for quick setup and adjustment, improving efficiency and saving time during machining operations.
Overall, a cam action quick drill vise provides a secure and adjustable clamping mechanism, allowing for precise positioning and firm grip of the workpiece during drilling. It is a valuable tool in metalworking, woodworking, and other industries that require accurate hole drilling or machining processes.
Take note of the jaw width of the vise, and make sure that it's large enough to be used for the projects you have in mind. Keep in mind that “jaw width” may not be the same as “jaw opening."
On a similar note, what type of material are you going to be using in your vise? If you’re planning on working with metal piping, make sure to choose a model that has a pipe jaw. This is a separate, angled jaw that makes it easy to clamp a round pipe, much easier than trying to secure it in the flat face, which can easily dent or misshape your pipe. This feature is really convenient for using a hacksaw on metal pipes. On the other hand, if you’re looking to secure large wood pieces, and don’t want to risk damaging their delicate surface, go with a dedicated woodworking vise.
