Anyone use one of these Wilton 7” vises?
I’m looking at purchasing a number for some benches I’m building.
I would like to know how folks like them, how they hold up, any issues, etc.

I like the swivel jaw idea.

Anyone want to sell any heavy-duty quick release vise(s)? I need 12. Shipping is usually the problem, I know.

Thank you,

I’ve had one of these for about 20 years. Built like a tank. The quick release works very well. I’ve never used the swivel jaw but I routinely use the “full length dog” feature. It is heavy so don’t let if fall on your foot …
