      Solid
      This workbench vice is amazing. Heavy duty and ready for any job if you want to throw at it. It is definitely a heavy solid vice that you don’t have to worry about banging around on clamp down very tight design can swivel if necessary and the teeth on the vice hold firm, I worry about my workbench giving out before this vice. So far it’s taken everything I’ve thrown at it

      Heavy Duty and precise!
      This vise is fantastic! I was a little worried about quality since it was made overseas, but no worries now that I have it! It’s heavy, sturdy, and precise! The jaws smoothly open and close, the rubber handle bushings are a nice touch to keep the noise down. The jaws are also precisely ground down to meet perfectly and they do! The paint seems pretty durable too.

      Massive heavy-duty vice that will last many lifetimes
      Ordered the 6 inch bench vice to replace a smaller 4 inch bench vice for more capability. The vice was easy to install on my work bench with four 3 inch long 5/8 inch bolts with nuts and washers that were not included. I have had the vice for 2 weeks. The jaws open and close smoothly. Substantial torque can be applied with the 10-inch-long handle to clamp large heavy items in place. The heat-treated jaws are 6 inches wide and open a full 6 inches. The base swivels 360 degrees for additional flexibility. The entire unit has an impressive 30,000 PSI tensile strength making the jaws and integrated anvil capable of withstanding heavy hammering to shape metal and other uses. The unit has a lifetime manufacture warranty which his hard to beat. The only negative was that the box was pretty beat up when delivered resulting in minor scratches on the vice.

      Great 6" vise, good construction nice features, works great.
      Installed this vise on my old barn workbench. Installation is a breeze. Just 4 mounting bolts. I used the vise for the first time today to hold wedges as i cleaned up their edges with a file. The swivel base works as intended... Not silky smooth motion but smoother than expected. The clamping force on the swivel base is more than adequate to keep it locked in position. The clamping jaws are very well made and grips/clamps down very well. The rubber "bushings" on the handle are a nice addition -keeps the bar from clanking around. I wanted to give itsclamping force a good test so I removed and old ball from a receiver. This vise kept it clamped securely while I applied excessive force with a cheater bar. The included anvil feature is nice, I have yet to find a use but I'm sure it'll come in handy in the future. Would recommend!

      A substantial Vise with Anvil!
      A substantial Gearwrench 8" heavy duty adjustable and swiveling base bench vise is now my go to for my work bench! Having the anvil striking location on it eliminates a secondary tool, it rotates freely which is remarkable considering it weighs 80lbs. I recent used it to hold a 2” square piece of metal framing, I was surprised it did not sag or move as I was bending, cutting and manipulating it. This is perfect for a machine shop!

      Great vise
      The Gearwrench 8" heavy duty adjustable and swiveling base bench vise is very handy to have around. The vise is solidly cast and very smooth nice finish to it. The vise is very smooth in operation, weather it's adjusting the jaw opening or the position with the swivel base are very smooth and effortless moves. The vise as you could guess is on the heavy side which is nice for working with as it can take a beating

      A very good vise for DIY's or Pros. You will kick yourself for not getting it sooner. Works like a third or fourth hand on those tough jobs and task
      The Gearwrench 6" Bench Vise fits great on my garage work bench. I do a lot of metal fabricating and welding along with vast amounts of steel pipe work. This vise has been a tremendous help with clamping, bending and forging. The 6" jaws align perfect when closed on a part. The pipe jaws grip pipe with ease. I was able to clamp 3" schedule 80 pipe and thread the ends without the pipe slipping in the jaws. I've used many different vises, and this one holds up against the best.
