Northern Industrial Tools Bench Chain Vise
great chain vise
I needed a small chain vise that could be bolted to the back of a pickup but also taken off and bolted to a small tripod stand. I looked at Ridgid first, but even their smallest chains were pretty expensive. The northern chain vise was perfect for the application and was around. It's a solid vise and easily compares to ridgid quality. I think I prefer the northern vise on the tripod stand because it seems a bit wider and longer so it bolts to the table more securely. The chain is heavy duty and holds pipe really well. The teeth on the jaws are agressive and grip cast iron and other thick wall metal pipe good. I'll definately buy this over the ridgid for the next chain vise.

The Pipe Vise is simple, works Great!, rugged and can be temporally mounted with C-clamps. Great Deal!

My threading savior!
I recently purchased a chain vise from northern tool and it has surpassed all of my expectations. Comparable to a RIDGID design, this vise has all of the same qualities and is tough to the same standard RIDGID has set forth. Best part is, your vise was a fraction of the cost! I've threaded iron pipes and completed several gas lines without any issues. Thank you Northern Tool for making this plumbers life a lot easier! :-)

Northern Industrial Bench Chain Vise
Great Vise - for all those times when trying to hold something that a standard vise can't hold, because the shape is odd. This vise compared to other mfgs was about 1/3 the cost of the other name brand vise that is "Red". This is a great valve, and wouldn't hesitiate to recommend it.

The chain vise that I purchased from Northern is exactly as promised and forfills my expectations for this tool.The tool has the capacity that I need and was reasonablely priced and well built.

We have had great sucess with this tool, it does what it is supposed to do and helps us prevent outside damage to the lift cylinders while holding them firmly in place while we disassemble and repair them.

THIS VICE WAS AN EXCELLENT INVESTMENT TO MY EXCAVATION CREW. IT HAS MADE PUTTING WATER CONNECTION TOGETHER WAY FASTER AND EASIER.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO BUYING MORE FROM YOU.
