The base casting was way off from the template. Somehow when the base part was made or poured, one of the tabs was way off. I also didn’t see the need for the 18” x 18” x 2“ being so big since the vise is mounted on the corner of the workbench. I will include a picture trying to show that offset. The vise is a beast

This bench vise is very sturdy and perfect for all of my needs as a DIY, regular weekend project kind of Dad. It does not come with mounting hardware, so I measured and got that separately. I used 4” length 5/8” bolts with washers and hex nuts to secure it to my gladiator work bench. I probably could’ve used 11/16” or maybe 3/4” bolts if I wanted to. Easy swing movement, locks in position great and is a breeze to open/close the jaws.

This is a serious tool for serious use. It opens and closes smoothly and has a good finished feel to it. I mounted mine to a 12" x 12" x 3/4" piece of plate steel, then mounted that to my welding bench. The swivel feature works very nicely. The top locks into a series of teeth on the bottom and is rock-solid, even when not fully tightened. And the teeth are small enough to provide good positioning in the rotation. I'm very impressed with the vise and with the ordering process. I had it delivered to the local store and picked it up there. Home Depot sent me an email and text when it arrived at the store. I went it to pick it up and found no line at the "On-Line Orders" desk. I was in and out in three or four minutes. Painless.
