From the Manufacturer

The PanaVise 308 weighted base mount is an accessory for PanaVise work-holding tools that allows a user to work with heavier items without having to bolt down a vise or use traditional clamping devices, ensuring the work tool's portability. The 308 weighted base mount is compatible with multiple PanaVise bases and vises, is constructed of cast iron molded into a special shape that encourages stability, and will not scratch surfaces that it is placed on.

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.

Base Compatibility

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.

Weighing in at five pounds, this base will certainly keep the vise from moving about. When combined with the standard base and vise (PanaVise 301), the total weight of eight pounds is about at the threshold of being convenient to pick up and reposition.

The rubber feet are good, but also optional, so you can use whatever you want to protect against sideways forces.

Installation was trivial, as the included screws match the base well.

The flat edge on the front of the base also allows the standard vise head (PanaVise 303) to go completely horizontal while keeping the clamp handle on top. This is normally not possible since the long protrusion from the vise head will normally bump into whatever surface the vise is mounted to.

There are also two side screw holes that can be used for expansions, such as custom made third hands for electronics work (coolant tubing + alligator clips).

PanaVise products are quality made and built to last. This weighted base is a bonus for the standard vise setup. This extra weight keeps the vise from moving and/or falling over when you are doing any kind of stress work with heavy items.

It is a heavy, cast metal base with screws, and after installing, the PanaVise feels like it is bolted down. The vise is not going to tip or move with this base.

Just purchased the PanaVise Model 201 PV Jr. Did not want the magnetic or c-clamp base. This is awsome. Its larger than I thought it would be and rock solid stable. Its made like a brick. Hey - its cast iron. One reviewer complained of casting lines. Yes this has them... very very minor and hardly noticable with the black paint. Your going to have casting lines on something cast in a sand mold. If you want one that is perfect then pay your local machine shop $400.00 to design and CNC machine a perfect base for you. This is the perfect companion to the PV Jr or any other of the 300 series bases. You will not be dissapointed - I'm not.

I need to hold something rock steady without bolts or clamps, so this base mount looked good. Unfortunately, the mount that I received doesn't sit flat -- it's close but I was expecting better. Tried it on several different flat surfaces with the same result on each. Stuck on the provided rubber feet but that didn't help. If the base mount had been designed such that it sat on three rubber feet instead of four, there wouldn't be a problem, but maybe that would just create other problems. I ended up solving the problem by sticking some extra material to the bottom of one of the four rubber feet. Sugru would probably work well too, instead of the provided feet.

The other minor problem I had with this item was in my own eyes/brain but I'll mention it here in case yours work the same way. When I looked at the photo of this item, it appeared as though the projections were legs pointed in a downward direction. I imagined there would be a third leg on the back. Based on that misperception of the item's height, I purchased the low profile base (part 305). When this base mount arrived, I was surprised to find that it's pretty flat. Check out the photos on the manufacturer's website for better angles.

There's no arguing the merits of a chunk of "Made in the U.S.A." cast iron. Powder coated for cleanliness. Comes with a set of stick-on rubber feet so you don't get scratches. Pre-threaded holes to attach your vise and an extra set of holes if you really feel the need to attach it to your bench. (Wholly unnecessary.)

This is going to be very handy.

If you're looking for a heavy weight to hold your Panavise in place, this is it! I haven't tried any of the other base mounts, so I don't know how this one compares to them, but it's seemed to work for whatever I need it to so far. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to keep their vise good and stable without the need for bolting it down to their work bench.

It is a chunk of steel and quite stable. I would not use this without clamping for more vigorous work. It would be nice for Panavise to add a bit more room for larger rubber feet OR include rubber feet with a much more aggressive adhesive so the feet stay put. I own three of these, one for each of my frequently use heads.
