From the Manufacturer

The PanaVise 305 low-profile base is a work-holding tool base designed for vise applications that require minimal distance from work benches, or other mounting surfaces. The 305 utilizes a "split-ball" feature which allows for head movement through three separate planes (tilt, turn and rotate), controlled by a single-load control knob. The PanaVise 305 low-profile base is compatible with all PanaVise 300 series vise heads and can be mounted using 1/4" (6.3 mm) countersunk screw holes in its bolt circle.

Low-profile base designed for vise applications close to bench surfaces.

Stable Low-profile Holding Power

The PanaVise 305 low-profile base is 2-1/2" (63.5 mm) tall, with a base diameter of 4-5/16" (109.5 mm). The base combines with one of PanaVise's compatible heads (sold separately) to create a work-holding tool suitable for use in a space that requires the attached head to be closer to the work bench. The bolt circle at the bottom of the base contains three pre-drilled holes countersunk for use with 1/4" (6.3 mm) flat head screws (sold separately) to secure the base to a work surface. Alternately, the 1.3 lb. (0.6 kg) weight of the 305 low-profile base, and its lower center of gravity, make it a good choice for lighter work-holding tool applications where mounting of the base is not possible or wanted.

Tilt, Turn and Rotate Functionality

The 305 low-profile base utilizes PanaVise single-knob "split-ball" functionality at the point of contact with installed vise heads. Once a vise head is installed and an item is secured, the split-ball system allows for maneuvering the item along three separate planes, with a single-load control knob locking the head firmly in place. The mobility range of the model 305's split-ball system is a 90-degree tilt to the side, along with either an angled rotation, or a level turn range of 360 degrees. This range of mobility allows a user to rearrange items into any position, and limits the need to adjust the overall position of the vise, or the item within the vise.

Multiple Vise Head Options

The PanaVise 305 low-profile base is suitable for use across a wide range of applications and is designed to be compatible with a range of vise heads. The base works with all PanaVise 300 series vise heads, as well as the PV Jr. model 203 head, or any tool head accessory with a 5/8" diameter shaft.
