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 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.
this vise is heavy duty.. built to last. the only ONLY problem i had with this was the shipping. the BOX was tore up like crazy. i thought OMG this thing has to be broken. I took it out of the box and it was all in one piece. The 1 thing that i did have a issue with was that this bolt that held the screw element of the vise was missing i luckily found it in the box and had to re -attach it to the vise.. With my craftsman adjustable wrench no less. Thank guy i had the right craftsman to fix the new craftsmen
