Rugged heavy and durable mounted to bench jaws open and close with ease so far have not used the back anvil when i do i will send a update
Actual item does not match online pictures. Item has been replaced with cheap Chinese knock off. Low quality, low quality finish, does not have reversible jaws, does not have vertical notch.
This product looks good. It is also heavy. But the mechanical mechanisms are poorly produced. They have slack. A lot slack. The vise works sloppy. It is most likely made in china. This is not your Father's bench vise.
I purchased the 6" Vice and immediately put it to good use. I had to cut some steel bars so I used my new vice. It was a great investment!
This might be an OK vise...it's heavy enough for a 6 inch vise...but it came with no bolt to secure the vise nut. Thus it's presently of no use until I can dismantle it and locate an adequate bolt to secure the vise nut. I seems the bolt was lost somewhere between China and Virginia...or never packaged in China.
