    Sets of Parallels

    Sets include multiple sizes of matched pairs that are precision ground for tight tolerances on the top and bottom edges. Place a parallel against each vise jaw and rest your workpiece on top to raise it within the vise and allow more clearance for cutting tools.

    Sets of Adjustable Parallels

    Adjust these two-piece parallels to your exact height requirements. Loosen the screw and slide the pieces in and out. When the desired height is achieved, tighten the screw. Parallels are precision ground on the top and bottom edges and are often used in pairs. Place a parallel against each vise jaw and rest your workpiece on top to raise it within the vise and allow more clearance for cutting tools.
