Questions & Answers

Bolt size

what kind of bolt I should use to fix this on bench?
Asked by: ge
Try something made of the weakest plastic you can find. Whatever you use will be more durable than this piece of dog squeeze.

Will this hold a 1/2 black pipe for threading?

I'm looking for a vise that can be used for various jobs including threading pipes. I plan on threading 1/2" black pipes, but I didn't want to have to buy an actual pipe vice, I was hoping this would also do the job. Have any of you guys tried using this to hold down pipes and did it work for you? Thanks!
Asked by: handyhack
Hahahahahahaha. Only if the pipe is made of styrofoam.

What size bolts do you use to mount?

Just got his and there are no bolts for mounting in the package. What do I buy?
Asked by: ARP3675
The smallest and cheapest you can possibly find. On second thought, don't mount it at all. It will probably break before you get it out of the box.

4-1/2 in. Light Duty Bench Vise with Swivel Base is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from When they say light duty they mean light duty! I would not use it to secure items to remove stub... When they say light duty they mean light duty! I would not use it to secure items to remove stubborn bolts. It only has 1 swivel locking bolt to secure the base that has a thin head. It would be much better if they had two locking bolts like some others do, or at least a heavier bolt. Check the center bolt that holds the base to the vise also before using. Pretty sure it was loose out of the box. Without applying very much force the swivel lock bolt broke and the base shifted and bent the screw so the jaws would not close. This would be a good second vise for some smaller tasks, I will be spending a little more money and upgrading to a heavier duty vise. I still gave it 3 stars because I can think of a lot of good uses for this vise and can't expect too much for $30. Recommendation would depend on what it would be used for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No mounting hardware Does not come with mounting hardware nor instructions nor anything telling you what size mounting hardware you need. Was going to install it and use it today, the project I need it for is time sensitive and now I have to go out and get the mounting hardware. Very inconvenient.
