    Best (Large) Bench Vise I’ve Used, August 3, 2011
    This review is from: Wilton 11800 648HD Utility Workshop Vise (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I have been using this vise for years and it has proven invaluable over the years. The action of the vise is suprisingly smooth and throughout the many beatings this beast has taken, it shows no visible signs of wear. I have a smaller vise that doesn’t compare, at all, to this monster. Don’t even bother with getting the kind of vise that has the C-style tabletop clamping device, which are only good for small things that require no forceful manipulating.

    All of that aside, I did manage to apparently bend some of the threads on the spindle. However, this is undoubtedly because I used a “cheater”/extension bar to significantly increase the clamping force. I believe that it would be impossible to bend the threads on the spindle without such methods. Although the threads are bent, the only side-effect is that the smooth action I mentioned above isn’t quite so smooth in that one spot, which isn’t a problem.

    Be careful, though, as the T-bar that runs through the end of the spindle has pinched me a number of times, all of which were entirely my fault. The T-bar is heavier than you’d think: just let go of it in the vertical position and let the ball-stop on the end smash some skin against the spindle and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about, haha.

    All in all, there is no replacement for a heavy-duty vise like this one.
