first- i will say this is alot heavier than i expected,which is a good thing.second-the clamping is very good once you remember to use the locking device. the foot control is very east to use and pretty darn tough.third- i was able to build a large shelving unit,by myself,without any trouble at all. held the wood stable enough to use my router with and w/o the edge quide. no slipping,or chaseing wood in the middle of a route. i am VERY HAPPY with this purchase !! i got a great deal at christmas time,but it is worth asking price. great product.
I've been very happy with the job vise. I was debating a second roller stand, but picked this up on sale instead. It has much more utility than a roller stand, and the clamping strength is excellent. Very easy to use, and the extension adds a lot of extra width to what it can hold. The one thing i wish it had was a way to level the feet. As it's a tripod, it will always stand firmly on any surface, but none of the legs are adjustable in height.
I have really loved this thing up until yesterday when one of the rubber pads broke off..i thought no biggy,just call sears/craftsman and order a new one..RIGHT!! Absolutely NOBODY i have called even knows what a Job Vise is and NOBODY knows where to get parts...frustrating...still a good unit.
Excellent product both from a practical standpoint (usefulness) as well as from a build quality standpoint. Considered via an In-Store A/B comparison, the competing product (Rockwell Jawhorse) but could find no compelling reason to spend more.

This is an excellent vise to have. If you need to have that extra set of hands, this is perfect. For the most part, it is easy to take around. If folds up nicely. The metal is thicker gauge, so It will take some abuse. I hate that Craftsman makes everything in China and other foreign countries, but that aside, I would suggest this tool to anyone.
I have looked at the Portable Job Vise for the for some time and saw the possibilities then a situation arose that justified the purchase and it fits the bill. Great machine
In a limited space environment, I needed flexibility and portability but did not want to sacrifice strength. This job vise fit the bill. Next time I have some points and the sale price is in effect I will get another.
This job vise is heavy but that makes it very stable. I do most of my wood work alone and finally have the third hand I have needed. It is a simple functioning device but works wonders. I waiting awhile to get one and am glad I finally did.
Perfect for the hobbyist or professional. I use this as an extra set of hands. They work very well, the picture on the box seems a little far fetched but it will actually do what it says.
