Frequently Bought Together
From the Manufacturer
The PanaVise 396 wide-opening work-holding tool is a general work-holding tool bundle designed for holding larger, heavier objects. The 396 features a head that opens up to 6", and features removable neoprene jaw pads, and the PanaVise 300 standard base. The PanaVise 300 standard baseis compatible with additional tool and vise head options, and features PanaVise "split-ball" functionality which utilizes single-knob controls for head movement through three separate planes (tilt, turn and rotate).
The General Work-holding Tool for Larger Objects
The PanaVise 396 wide opening head work-holding tool is made up of two PanaVise components: the 366 wide opening vise head and the 300 standard base. The 366 vise head is 11" (279.4 mm) in length and opens up to 6" (152.4 mm) with neoprene pads attached (6-1/4" (158.8 mm) with pads off). The body of the head above the stem has a black oxide coating to reduce glare from overhead work lights. The included 1-7/8" neoprene jaw pads are reversible and removable. One side of the pads contains multiple grooves designed for flat surfaces, while the other has a wide 'V' groove to hold round objects. The PanaVise 300 standard base includes a 3-3/4" (95.2 mm) tall stand with a 4-5/16" (109.5 mm) footprint, and weighs 1.4 lb. (0.6 kg). To secure the entire unit to a work bench or an optional base mount, the 396 features a bolt circle at the bottom edge of the base, which is countersunk for three 1/4" flathead screws.
(bench clamp mount not included).
Tilt, Turn and Rotate Functionality
The PanaVise PanaVise 396 wide opening head work-holding tool utilizes PanaVise single-knob "split-ball" functionality at the point of contact between its base and vise head attachment. Once an item is secured within the head, the split-ball system allows maneuvering along three separate planes. The mobility range of the model 396'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 mobility range allows a user to rearrange a work item into any position, eliminating the need to adjust the overall position of the work station.
Additional Head Options
Although the PanaVise 396 work-holding tool is primarily intended for use with the included 366 wide opening vise head attachment, it is also compatible with a range of other vise head accessories. Its base works with all PanaVise 300 series vise heads, as well as the PV Jr. model 203 head, or any other tool with a 5/8" diameter shaft.

The 396 head works well but takes forever to make large changes to jaw opening width, it needs a release device so it can be quickly adjusted.
I received this in a well-sized box appropriate for re-purposing with the following wrapped separately inside: 1) the base; 2) the arm with mount; and 3) the rubber feet.
It was obvious how it went together and the mount slides into the base upon opening with a 3/8" nut driver. The rubber feet push on over the steel arms. The clamping action is by screw and the fine screw threads make for a lot of turning to go from full open to full close- but on the flip side, it allows very precise holding.
I also purchased the 308 weighted base for this and it fits perfectly ensuring that the vise doesn't move. The base has rubber feet too, which just really doubles down on the holding power.
This is a really good piece of bench/work desk equipment and I cannot recommend it highly enough for just about any kind of small work. I use it in electronics for my hobbies and work. Building Christmas light controllers and such is much more fun with the proper equipment!
Highly Recommended 5 Stars
Holds securely, and it protects any object you want from scratches and unwanted bends as happens on metal jaw vises.
Also a lot more portable than a regular metal vise.
Looks sturdy enough.
