is there a warranty on the non repacable jaws

I doubt very much that you will be able to take the knurling off the jaws unless your spinning a grinder against the jaw face.

Can the jaw faces be changed?

Answer

The Spec. on this vise says 1/2" mounting holes (3) and I used 1/2"-13UNC x 2" long. The length will depend on the thickness you are mounting it to.

Absolutely the best value for any money!
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
I now own a 4" and two 6" vises. They are an absolute pleasure to work with after using many other types at work over the years. These are unbreakable! Totally adjustable to maintain tightness of the moveable jaw when open and parallel when closed even when clamped tightly at only one end. These are lifelong vises - you will never need to buy another replacement!

Easy to install nice and compact fit my bench perfect! I like that it’s forged steel and it’s guaranteed for life! The price is a little high but it appears to be a quality product and made in Germany.
