THis bench vise is perfect for home use. Its small enough for small garage work, but yet heavy-duty enough to take whatever beating you can give it.

I relied on vise my Father gave me one Christmas way above and beyond what would be considered fair and reaonsble use. My mini sledge, pry bars are only some of the cruelty I performed on it working on angle iron, tailpipes, extracting bearing races, Ujoint caps, Bending rod up to 3/4 of an inch thick., steel plates etc. My son broke it once only for me to discover all the abuse loosened the inner bolt from all the vibration from beating on it. I put it back together and we started all over again. Finally one day the case cracked trying to use it as a hydraulic press to remove u joints. The iron case literally cracked in half on both sides. My ONLY complaint was that my local sears did not have another in stock the day it died. No more loyal strong and dependable tool every existed. The replacement was of another brand which was so noticable weaker that its flexing cracked the paint off it the very first use. I want my Craftsmen vise back :-C

I needed a vice to mount onto my new workbench, so I picked this 4" one it is really well made and I needed to cut some nuts for some bolts I needed to mount my wheels onto my workbench so i used the craftsman 4" vice to clamp my nuts so I could cut my nuts in half to be thinner so the swival wheels would not hit them and the vise really held my nuts nice and tight so I could cut them in half. this is a very well built vice and I really like the nice size of it to. one tough built vice
For the size and quality I thought it was too expensive. With sale price and club savings plus ************* this is a good value. I miss the familiar craftsman red color. The axis rotation makes it slightly awkward on a corner installation.

This is a very heavy vice, which seems to hold up well. A solid, secure mount to a bench helps out in placement of it. I am not crazy about the made in china bit, but it seems to close evenly, and works as expected.
I purchased this vise to mount on the workbench in my garage for working on road and mountain bicycles... After about a year of moderate use, on bicycle parts only, one of the reversible plates broke and now SEARS is telling me replacement jaw liners are unavailable! Seems short sighted and environmentally unfriendly to require a customer to trash a vise in perfect condition and buy a new one because they didn't think ahead to make replacement liners which bolt in! Bye, bye Craftsman, Snap-On gets my dineros from now on!
