How to Get It

Product Overview

The DEWALT 6 in. Heavy-Duty Workshop Bench Vise is ideal for home, shop, and contractor use. Built for durability and dependability, this vise is constructed from 30,000 psi cast iron. The replaceable micro-grooved steel jaws have a strong grip and will prevent objects from moving around once you clamp them in place. The built-in cast iron pipe jaws are grooved for enhanced grip and allow for easy clamping of pipe and other rounded material. A large anvil work surface on the back of the vise is perfect for hammering and shaping metal pieces. The 210° swivel base allows this vise to be positioned so work pieces can be clamped with ease. The machine steel main screw with rolled threads is wear-resistance which provides smooth operation. Whether you are working with wood or metal at home or in the shop, the 6 in. Heavy-Duty Workshop Bench Vise provides the maximum clamping and holding power needed to get the job done with confidence.

This is a good, large (see photo), heavy vice that I've used extensively since I got it. I have hammered metal that's being held in it and it has not slipped or lost the grip on it. It holds whatever I've needed secured in it. I also purchased non marring pads (see photo) to prevent marks on whatever the vice was holding. They work very well also.

    If you're thinking about building a workbench in your garage or shop, buy this first and build around it. This thing is a beast!!! Seriously, the HD employee was taken to the hospital with a broken back and 3 crushed ribs just taking this YUGE chunk of steel off the shelf (not really but it coulda happened). My workbench top is made from a solid wood office door, and it bolted up perfectly. I went through 2 smaller vises from the Freight Harbor store and learned my lesson. I use it mostly for mild steel and aluminum and I don't see this Dewalt failing anytime soon. Well worth the purchase. If you cared enough to read this, you should care enough to buy one.

    Even though it says "Heavy duty". When we put something in the jaws and use a wrench open. The Vise base slipped the swivel would not lock in place. I could not properly lock in place. There is only one point of contact. This may be good for light duty, but not for heavy duty, Plumbing etc.

    The vise functions properly. However, the cranking action of the vise is very gritty and not as smooth as my old craftsman vise.

    Great for my needs. Bigger than I needed. Feels solid. Only issue is the handle was a little bent when I received it. Bthis probably happened during shipping. I use vises every day at work and they get slightly bent from regular use. It doesn't bother me enough to deal with returning it.
