I researched vises heavily, eventually found a group that is into vises, the Garage Journal, (garagejounal.com) . Some great info there.

The short version is avoid anything that is made in China.

The Ridgid is made in Germany, of Steel welded together, so far the only vise I heard of made this way. As a result, is less weight and bulk for the same ability.


The good American made vises such a Wilton and others are great, and have replaceable jaws, and much more expensive, I have used a few.

For the money this vise can not be beat.
You probably get the same value for and American Made Wilton and others ( Beware, they have allot of models made in China) because of the replaceable jaws, but you have to pay for that.

As one reviewer noted, the 5 inch is a better value, almost twice the mass of the 4 inch, I imagine the screw and other parts are much beefier and the vise can a much bigger job if needed.

ToolUp was great except for one thing: I imagine Ridgid ships the vises to them on a pallet, or some other method, and the vises just have a light duty cardboard box and Tool up did not put that box inside a shipping box so the vise was almost falling out when I received it.
When I called them up about it, they did not seem to concerned.

I suggest they give the option of paying for better packaging or just simply put the vise in a rugged shipping box.

Excellent design.
I easily mounted it on my work table using 1/2 inch bolts, washers and nuts.
Highly recommended.
Looks like it will last for quite a while.

Excellent Vise

Pros: Precision/strength

Quality does not always come cheap and this is certainly the case with this vise. If you get over the price, you will find this to be a great vise. The product picture needs to be updated, at the product does not have the graduations you see on the photo, and it includes the 360deg swivel base. One question one might have is what vise to go with and having seen the 4" and bought the 5", I would definitely recommend the 5". The 4" it's too small, especially considering that for around $80 more you get twice the vise in weight. The vise was delivered in two days and customer service was helpful over the phone--there are sites out there that will ask you to leave a message. Happy with the purchase--would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend.

Best vice

This is the best bech vise I have ever used. It is very heavy duty with high quality machining wich results in a vise that can withstand continious use and has excellent holding due to parallel jaws with little slop in the action.
If you need a high quality vise; buy this one.
