Benchcrafted - Tail Vise C (Rating: 5)

After using this vise for a couple of months, I wanted to post a review of it. First off this is the best vise I have ever used. The operation is smooth and the holding power is excellent. There are two versions available, one with a machined hand wheel the other cast. All other parts are the same. As much as I would have liked to have the shiny one I could not justify the added cost.

Installation takes care. The measurements need to be precise for the vise to work properly. The installation guide you download is clear, just make sure you follow the directions for printing the template and check the scale before using.
