What are the soft jaws?

Soft jaws are one of the simplest methods of customized workholding. These jaws aren’t usually customized, but rather, are designed with beveled edges or teeth that can bit into a part. Generally, soft jaws are made out of mild steel, but they can be cut out of even softer materials, like aluminum.
