The primary vise categories are metalworking, woodworking, hand held, and machine. Which vises are needed for a home work area depends upon the types of projects they are needed for. Working with intricate wood creates the need for a different vice than when working with steel. Metalworking Vises: Metalworking vises are usually used as a bench
There are two basic types of bench vise: the front vise and the end vise. The front vise, most often installed at the left corner of the long edge of the workbench, is great for holding a drawer side upright while you cut the tails of a dovetail joint or holding a board edge-up horizontally for hand planing.
A woodworking vise is an indispensable workbench fixture for woodworkers and carpenters. It allows you to hold wood firmly while you work on it. Normal bench vises with thin metal jaws would severely mark up the surfaces
