I got this as a replacement for a quality vise I bought at Sears many years ago. Old one had a lifetime warranty.. this one 1 year. Its like buying a RollsRoyce with a kifetime warranty and getting VW when it breaks.. with a one year warranty. At least VW's are good, this vise is a hollow cast piece of .... . They won't refund my money.. they got me.

Strong and solid build for home workbench.


Great sale price. Swivel base means I can position it on the corner of my bench and have flexibility and room for larger work pieces. I like the anvil for straightening small pieces, much better than concrete floor. Good size jaws. I know there are higher quality materials and designs out there but I don't need to spend hundreds of dollars for my home bench needs.
