Pros: stout , well made vise
Cons: color
Recommended: Yes
This is a great vise for the money. I'm a long time professional blacksmith and fabricator and a good vise is an edssential basic tool of the craft. I've got over 25 vises scattered throughout my shop, Wilton bullets, Reeds, Yosts, Eries and Parkers and a bunch of heavy forged post vises for hot work.

The Ridgid F150 has become my main fabrication vise, set up on a heavy steel post bolted to the corner of my welding table. It's got great capacity, is really tough and well made. The T shape of the jaws allows it to hold long work vertically, something the bulky jaws of the comparable Wilton 600 doesn't do as well.
The anvil is good size and has a proper hard heat treatment , so it's actually useful.

I don't tend to really beat on my machinist vises, using my anvils and forged leg vises for that task, for which they are designed.

There is an adjustment screw that is useful to take up any slop in the alignment of the jaws.

My only complaint was the factory baby blue color, but a quick coat of paint took care of that.

I retapped and replaced the sliding lockdown handles on the rotating base with a couple of 1/2'' bolts as a matter of personal preference.

For the money, this is a great tool.
