This is a fixed head Vise. Has a spring loaded handle with an easy drop in for holding hooks. Head rotates in the back ( please note some models have a different style of knob in the back , some are black with brass and some are all brass ). Comes with c clamp to mount to a table top. Well made for the money. Brass head. Please note: I use various vendors for this vise, the head may have a slightly different rear knob. Some models are brass and some have a black knob that is slimmer. Both knobs styles shown.
