Pros

The fit and finish are excellent, much better than anything i saw in that price range. The swivel is very smooth, and the base is very true. It does the job! This product is a bang for your money!

This vise has rubber noise stoppers. Clamped wood for woodwork project. Clamped pipe to cut with pipe holder built in worked great all around. This eight inch vice has a good heavy weight so for sharpening chains saws and mower blades and axes i don't...  Read More

Built like a battleship, should last a lifetime. Very sturdy and much more tighter assembly than my 30 year old one.

No complaint at all. Having watched some reviews of other sub $500 vices i believe this to be as good of a vice as you can get in the price range. Have only had it a short time but no regrets at this point.



Cons

Not heavy duty at all. The anvil section is very small and thin. If you grip a chainsaw bar with it, it is only right on the right side. It doesn't use the standard quarter turn locks, you actually have to thread the keepers out several turns to rotat...  Read More

Quality


Seems sturdy and like a quality piece.


I would compare it in build quality to wilton's mechanics vise.


Seems to be made of quality materials and didn’t even hiccup with few times i’ve used.


Those cracks, in turn, are likely to travel because they interfere with the material's ability to distribute stress and create ...  Read More

Not sure if this happened prior to shipping, or in transit, but.

It has jaws to hold pipe beneath the .


The fact that the vise dents when you hit it with a relatively hard hammer is actually evidence that the vise is exactly what i...  Read More

    I was inpressed wuth the overall quality of this vise and the only reasin i didn't give it 5 stars is the fact that it required me to purchase 1/2 bolts to hold it to the table top.

    I understood it was made in the usa but the box has china written on it.

    Cast iron, of course, is very difficult to weld back in the event of a break or a crack.

    Product is exactly as described, however mine was clearly dropped prior to receiving it.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    There's no way i can physically package it back up and return it, so i guess i will have to suck it up.
