A small drill press vise with lugs and a size of 1-3/4" refers to a vise that is designed for use with a drill press and has a maximum opening width of 1-3/4 inches. The lugs on the vise are used to secure it to the drill press table, providing stability and preventing it from moving during drilling operations.
These types of vises are commonly used in machining and woodworking applications where precise drilling is required. They are typically made of durable materials such as cast iron or steel to withstand the forces exerted during drilling.
When purchasing a small drill press vise, make sure to check its specifications to ensure that it meets your specific requirements, such as the maximum opening width, the size of the lugs, and any other features you may need. It's also important to consider the quality and reliability of the vise, as well as any additional accessories or features that may be included.
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.
