    very poor quality.
    I purchased this tool mainly to do u joints on my cars. They are british sports cars so they have small u joints. I installed 4 joints and did an ok job until the the 5th ujoint when I heard a cracking noise. Well, so happens the cracking was the tool’s front jaw braking in two pieces. It should be illegal, if it isn’t already to waste people’s time selling such a low quality item. it is chinese of course. Also, i used my hands, not a cheater bar. A good American made vise will cost you hundreds of dollars but it will last.

      I had this vise for a few years, but only put it to light use. Today I was trying to break loose a stuck nut and the jaw broke in two. I am terribly disappointed that this broke so easily and wound not recommend this to anyone else.

        Disappointing. The value-engineers got a hold of this one. Bought one of these over a year ago and thought it was good for the price. Ended up breaking, which admittedly was due to my misuse. Liked it enough that I bought another last week, and found it to be smaller in nearly every way. Shorter, lighter, handle is smaller, threaded rod is smaller. Everything is about 3/4 scale of my original. Not happy to see them downsize what I thought would be the same vise.

          very nice vise
          Heavy duty, works great. There are three mounting holes - they are designed for 1/2” bolts - they are a little rough on the inside from the forging process so you might have to “clean” the holes up a little with your 1/2” drill bit. Very secure when “locked down” after I mounted it on my work bench. Although not designed to hold pipes, I used it to hold a segment of 3” aluminum pipe while I drilled holes in the pipe; it worked fine for that.

            Garbage, broke this vise in half under normal operating conditions. Customer service will not respond to my emails and phone calls. Very disappointed, I will be sure to dig down into future purchases and not buy another Chinese made vise.

              Good Quality, Great Price
              This vise is exactly what I needed and you can't beat the price. Three bolt holes are easier to find a good spot for than four. Jaws were true and square right out of the box. Mounted easily with 7/16" bolts. Packaged well in the box (see photos). There are definitely bigger/better vises out there, but this one is meeting my requirements at a very fair price.

              Very good vice for the price point
              I looked into a basic vise for my garage workbench and found three categories: 1. Basic models under $100 with hit and miss quality 2. $100-$200 models with marginal benefits 3. Professional / commercial models over $300 I'd love to have a blue Bessey Industrial vise, but couldn't possibly justify spending $475 on a vice for my DIY / hobbyist needs. I looked into the Grizzly G7062 for around $100, but the weird rotation feature turned me off. So I came back to this basic Bessey model, which does the job and at a relatively good price. I picked mine up at the local HD store. The box was in good condition and the vise was in good condition with no issues. I've only used it briefly so far to hold some aluminum for brazing, but it seems to work plenty well for my needs. The one shortcoming of this model is that it only has the flat main jaws. It does not have any extra teeth below the jaws for clamping round stock or pipe. So if you plan on doing a lot of work with pipe, this vise may not be the best choice for you. The vise has 3 mounting holes which are roughly 11mm to 12mm in diameter. It has two screws to tighten the rotating base, which is nice. The screws are nice and large, and attach to a mounting ring in the base of the vise.

              It's big. It's heavy. It squeezes things.
              I haven't spent a lot of time using this yet, but it appears to have very smooth operation and will do a great job as a hitch mounted vise on my truck. I do appliance repair for a living and from time to time need to bend something or hold something still while I smack it with a hammer. This should work. The built in anvil is a great addition. I am using a $22 Harbor Freight trailer hitch mount which I have a locking pin on, but hope someone doesn't just remove the 3 mounting bolts and snatch my vise.
