Great vise for the money

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.

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.

Poor Quality


It took forever to get once I ordered it. Then when it did finally get here the bolt that holds the base to the body was laying in the box and would not screw into the body when the washer was in place. So I had to leave the washer off in order to get the base to stay on the body.
