Wilton Shop Vise - 6in., Bench Mount
a good price for a good grip
I had busted my previous 6" vice trying to remove the head from a commerical paint sprayer piston. A 4 foot cheater bar and a large man were enough to fracture the vice casting. After that, I had reverted to a little hobby 4" vice while I shopped for a suitable replacment. I found this vice at Northern tool and took a chance since it had a limited lifetime warranty. The cost was slightly more than the models available at the local big box home improvement stores and a lot less than any model that had any sort of warranty. I've had it about 6 months now and it seems to be doing the job. However, I have to admit that I haven't really challenged it just yet. (No cheater bars but I have built some good torque with a 18" pipe wrench). I am happy to have this vice.

Finally value for my money
Was quite skeptical buying this, but it is well worth the price. Hefty, solid, well engineered, and packed with ample grease to protect the metal. The shipping box was damaged with a handle protruding, but I had read about this in another review, and considering that it's a massive hunk of steel, didn't worry about it in the least.

Great addition to my work bench. Have been needing a larger vice for some time in my work shop.

Great vise for the money - perfect for the person who needs a large capacity vise for medium duty work.
