Wilton Shop Vise - 8in., Bench Mount
I purchased this vice for our company shop. It seems to be a very well constructed vice. We are very impressed with the quality. We use it almost everyday doing a variety of different jobs in the shop. I would recommend this vice to anyone.

The plates on the jaws of my old vise had broken off, then the mechanism which allows you to swivel the vise also broke. I ordered this product to replace what I thought was a durable vise in my shop. I was very pleased when I received this new vise. Just the weight of it tells you that it is well constructed and with the eight inch jaws I know it will perform the way I want it to. It did not take me long to remove the old vise and install the new one. I would recommend this vise to my friends!

A vice so nice I bought it twice
I'd had small vices for years and that's fine for small work, but I'm finding that I'm doing more beam work now and I needed something with a wide mouth and a heavy grip. I bought one for my bench and it's been great ever since. Easy to apply just the right amount of pressure. The items within it never slip. Has the capacity to torque way down on items that will heat up so they don't expand and knock the item from the vice. I was so pleased with it that I bought a second of the same vice for the other end of my table so I can now work on 8 foot pieces of steel held at the same position and level.

I purchased 5 of these vises for our shop and am extremely pleased with them. They are heavy duty and a good value. The only thing that I saw bad was the square slide had very sharp corners. I simply filed the sharp edges to remedy the problem.

This vise is a very heavy duty piece. This purchase actually replaces the same model that we have had for years.

Unit was much heavier than I expected! My mechanics love it!

I've had this vise for about 8 months now and have been very pleased with it. Especially at those times when I'm really just using it as a second set of "hands".
One tip: be sure you have a stable surface to mount it to. The vise itself is quite heavy, and when you get to pushing/pulling on whatever is clamped in it, it can move the whole bench if it isnt secured to the wall/floor.

This vise does everything I need at work and is heavy enough to hold up to the heavy parts and pounding I need to perform on some of the parts.

good vise, good price
A good solid vise for the price. I've owned this unit for over a year and the 8 in is bigger than I have needed but it certainly doesn't hurt to have the capacity. I have used this for wood, metal and gunsmithing projects.

Heavy duty and solid
Excellent vise for my workbench. Very tough, heavy and industrial. No problems. Should last forever. Pleased with this item.
