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!

Bench vice is as advertised....., but the first time I used it the rear jaw cracked with an apparent heat treating fault. Sears/Craftsman aver they have NO parts or replacement jaw sets, individually or jaw sets, and it appears they have no intent to help me find a set. $79.00 down the drain! This is a newly purchased item, still on line PN 51856, Vice 6-12

Any respectable workshop should have a vice that is capable of handling any job, this is that vice. Very heavy metal construction, this vice should last for years.
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.
