A: All (3) Yost models are made from 65,000 psi ductile iron: 855-D2, 865-D2, 880-D2. Since most advertisements on web sites are public domain, sometimes computers scrub data from other sites and reverse populate data back onto their sites using AI (artificial intelligence). Unfortunately, this confuses the public and I cannot keep up with all the changes in the listings. Rest assured if you purchase a Yost reversible vise (855-D2, 865-D2, 880-D2), it will be 65,000 psi ductile iron. All our competitors use 30,000 psi cast iron for their material of construction, so at a minimum ours is 2x stronger than theirs. Any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me at email@example.com or 616-396-2063 x3.
A: China, under the direction of Yost USA and based upon Yost USA specifications and standards
A: Made in China under USA specifications and standards
A: Yost has joined the race to the bottom and moved most of their manufacturing from USA to China. The model of vise currently listed on this page is made in China, which has undoubtedly lowered the quality of the product. From Yost's own images of the old American version (855-D1) and this Chinese version (855-D2), it's obvious the quality of the pipe jaws has been lowered significantly.
A: Per the Yost webpage it is 38 lbs shipped
A: According to the Yost Vices website it weighs 49 lbs: http://www.yostvises.com/products/bench-vises/professional-grade/multi-purpose-reversible-combination-vise/5-1-2-multi-purpose-reversible-combination-vise-swivel-base.html
A: Read the description. I think it said 38 lbs. It's bigger than I thought. See my review with pictures. Thanks, you'll love it.
A: GW: ~38 pounds, NW: ~35 pounds
