Add Portable Stability with a Weight Base Mount
The PanaVise 308 weighted base mount is work-holding tool accessory that is designed to attach to various PanaVise vises and bases, and provides stability without the need for clamps or permanent surface attachment. The overall footprint of the 308 weighted base mount is 6-7/8" deep x 7-1/2" wide (174.6 mm x 190.5 mm). Its height is 1-3/16" (30.2 mm) tall, weighs 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) and it is constructed out of solid cast iron. It distributes weight through its two-wing arm shape, which adds stability. Surfaces are protected by four non-marring, anti-skid pads that attach to bottom surface contact points.
The 308 weighted base mount is compatible with the PanaVise 201 PV Jr. vise, the 300 standard base and the 305 low-profile base. Connection is provided by three pre-drilled and tapped 1/4"-20 holes in the 308 weighted base mount's upper surface. The holes match the triangular mounting hole configuration found in the compatible bases and vise. The 308 weighted base mount also has two additional pre-drilled 1/4"-20 holes at the edge of its left and right wings, which can anchor other work-holding tool accessories.
