I've used and abused my Craftsman 6" HD Vise for the past 10 years and it has never failed me. Initially I found too much play in the opening\closing cam action, but quickly remedied that by tightening the main swivel bolt that was 2 threads loose. Since then, this vise has helped me hand threaded 2" pipe, has supported multiple large woodworking projects for construction and assembly fabrication, drill large 1\2" plate steel and hammer into submission rebar and angled steel with my shop 5# double head sledge.
I find the 6" vise has a large opening capacity, holds objects tightly and releases with ease. It isn't designed for industrial use, but then it only comes in at 10-20% of the commercial vise $$$ market! Yep, it's easily handles all of my DIY projects and has been an Outstanding supportive unit for my homeowner construction-fabrication-maintenance needs!
Great vise for the money, much better than the vises for the same price at that other discount tool dealer. Metal quality is very good and polished pieces fit well, mounts to table easily.
The vise does a good job so far, considering I've only had it for a few weeks now. It is solidly built. My only two complaints are that the tightening handle is slightly bent- it looks like it got damaged in shipping. Also, the swivel is hard to secure- sometimes it gets loose. I hope it stays put now that I've re-tightened it. I think it is unethical for Sears to sell a damaged item- the box had a UPS label that indicated that this vise was shipped directly from Sears to a customer's home. The box was pretty beat up, so it appears that the vise arrived damaged, the customer returned it to Sears and I ended up with this vise. It's not damaged enough that I would return it, but I think that is very poor practice and does not reflect well on the company.

definately not the quality you would expect from craftsman, this vise would have been more at home on a shelf at **************...but you get what you pay for and it will do for my needs at my home workshop..the only problem i had was the base slipping at the center bolt after tightenng the swivel lock down, but that's nothing i can't put up with..all in all i'm satisfied with it.
I was in a jam when my less than a year old HF 6" vise snapped a jaw and needed another vise quick. I drove up the block to Sears and picked this one up for a little more than $55.00 out the door price. I read the reviews here and was kind of nervous about getting another eventual heavy duty paper weight. But by now I know that unless your prepared to spend some serious money, or luck out at an Estate Sale and snap one up made at the latest in the late '80s your not going to get the kind of vise that will last forever and/or take a serious beating. Once mounted this vise is a bit hard to swivel, I've read about the fix for that. The jaws are square when closed and the screw turns true. So far I've been able to continue the project I was working on and we'll see how long this one lasts. For the money I spent this vise is worth the price of admission.
Ok my one of my jaws broke. As you can see this happens often from the other reviews. Here is the website you can the replacement jaws. http://www.ereplacementparts.com/jaw-faces-p-1016743.html They are $39.59 plus shipping. Good luck with your vise.
