Craftsman 6" Bench Vise-Workhorse!

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!

Piece of junk
Got this vise for Christmas, used it twice. I put a heavy duty bolt with lock nut on it in the vise and tightened it down. First the jaw snapped in half so I moved the bolt to the other half for a good grip, this time it held until I started to pull on the breaker bar. After a couple of tugs on the breaker bar, the vise actually broke in half! I guess I am closer to superman than I thought. I would never recommend this product to any of my friends and will be looking for a better quality product.

Great Vise

After reading other reviews seeing the bad and the good from this I went ahead and bought it anyways. I use it a couple times a week and so far it has been great and has held up to all the stress I have put it through. I mainly do woodworking and random home improvement projects where I am not putting the vise under lots of pressure and hitting on anything I have locked down. If you were to use it as I do you would not regret buying this vise.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great product

This is a great value for the money. While it may not hold up in a professional welding shop, it should last a long time in a home shop. I highly recommend.
