Tail-vise hardware for a workbench can be expensive, fussy or tricky to install. Now Veritas has invented a clever workbench accessory that allows you to add a tail-viselike setup to any worksurface.

Called the Surface Vise, it’s essentially a quick-release vise that drops into two 3/4″-diameter dog holes in your benchtop. One part of the Surface Vise locks into a dog hole and guides the vise’s rod. The other part of the vise is a quick-release speed nut that engages the threaded part of the rod.
