I've been searching for a vise for some time now. Most of the really good brands are really expensive. Most of the inexpensive vises are really poor quality, as the ratings say. I was a little hesitant to order this one because it is made in China and is reasonably priced. I expected it to be of poor finish and not operate well. I was wrong. For the money, this is one good product. I haven't done a lot of heavy duty work with this vise, so I cannot say how it would hold up in that environment, but for light to medium duty it works well.
Vise jaw faces are made to be replaceable. However, Sears doesn't sell replacements. When or if yours break, and they often do, the vise is trash without new ones.
The jaws on the vise were loose and when attempting to tighten them the screw stripped before the jaw was tight.
Been looking for a vice for years, this is a great deal!!!
It is what I was looking for, great price, and made well.
It is a very strong vice, very well designed and built. I noticed that some reviews talk about the jaws breaking and being hard to replace, but they seem strong for me, so I so far love this vise.
