    Ski vises

    This might be so niche is gets no replies, but does anyone have experience with multiple brands of ski vises?

    Looking for recommendations, as there's very little available on-line, and most of what I can find are obviously (in actuality) advertisements disguised as reviews.

    Bought this one recently and it's very well made. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F292171443406 it's all metal and the vice holds well.

    Wintersteiger Sport Plus. Available on Amazon. $80.
    Great multi-purpose vise and a reasonable price. You can spend much more.
    I tune a lot, 3 kids in racing.

    Does anyone have experience with, The Jaws of the BEAST?

    That's the other 3 contact model I'm looking at, a bit more expensive at $110.

    That's one of the ones I've been looking at!

    I definitely want to go with one of the 3 clamp models, and that seems like a good price point given it's all metal. My only question is how well/easy is it to clamp onto and hold the bindings of skis that are >=100mm underfoot?

    It holds onto the heel well. No issues - so far anyway. Whatever you do get the three piece with a clamp, I have a swix with a rope center tiedown which I do not like. The ends are fine just can't seem to keep the ski stable while scraping wax

    So after entirely too much research, as is the cross I bear, I decided to go with the RaceWax World Cup All Metal Three Piece model. Came to $84.54 with free shipping. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.

    Can't compare, since I've had this one for ~ 25 years now and it's always worked very well.

    http://www.tognar.com/profi-ski-vise...nafit-nnn-sns/

    It comes with a boot dummy that you click in your binding and that locks the ski down. There are multiple holes in the boot dummy tongue, so you can push the center of the ski and bend it slightly so you can really get a snug hold on your ski if you need it.





    The vise also has the ability to quickly put the ski on either a 45* angled edge or straight edge; like this:



    A lot of the time, if I'm doing light work on the ski or simply waxing, I don't bother with clamping in the ski with the boot dummy, I simply put the ski on the ski vise and the rubber on the tops of the vise holds it nicely, or the ski nestles into the 45* position and is held firm enough for sharpening. Or the quick vertical clamps hold the ski in the vertical position firmly.

    Check the link for the product above, and read the description. Holds a lot of ski and binding types.

    Mine has lasted ~25 years and is still going strong. If I need to replace it, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the same model again.
