      Q:Can this be used to shrpen mower blades?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Not knowing the size of the lawn mower blade it is a bit hard to answer. The further you move out from the clamped are, the more torque you apply to the clamped area. For small blades it should be fine. For about the same cost, maybe you consider the Yost LV-4 or Yost BV-4 as an alternative to the COV-3 Please feel free to contact Yost at 616-396-2063.

        Very convenient vice and it is detachable and quite light to move around the work bench and even to other desks. It is heavy duty enough to handle DIY metal works and woodwork for me.

        Expected better
        The retaining clip that secures the sliding jaw to the screw popped out on first use. Literally, right out of the box, I installed the vise on my bench, tested the clamp on a 2x2” wood block and upon loosening, the clip fell off the screw. With no customer service contact or information in the box, its being returned for a refund.

            Good quality, Good value
            This is a very good quality clamp on vise. I'm using it to fix the bent pinch welds on my vehicle. I'm thankful that Home Depot carries this vise. Shipping was fast and easy.

              It's sturdy and has worked well for me so far. I've only used it to hold a chainsaw for sharpening. I chose this one because I wanted a vise that can be easily moved around.
