      the 4" bench vise is perfect for all of my needs

      THis bench vise is perfect for home use. Its small enough for small garage work, but yet heavy-duty enough to take whatever beating you can give it.

      What a waste...
      I purchased this vise to mount on the workbench in my garage for working on road and mountain bicycles... After about a year of moderate use, on bicycle parts only, one of the reversible plates broke and now SEARS is telling me replacement jaw liners are unavailable! Seems short sighted and environmentally unfriendly to require a customer to trash a vise in perfect condition and buy a new one because they didn't think ahead to make replacement liners which bolt in! Bye, bye Craftsman, Snap-On gets my dineros from now on!

      Good Vise

      This is a DIY shop/home vise. It isn't as true as I would like but for holding things occasionally and when you can work with a lesser quality vise, this will do the job. It is only 30,000 lb. tensile strength and made in China.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Not bad for the price

      I had to slightly shim one side of a jaw to make them match perfectly, but for the light use I'm using it for it's perfect.

      Craftsman quality

      This vise lives up to the Craftsman quality name. It opens wide and swivels smoothly for easy use. My dad only purchased Craftsman tools and so I do I, they never let you down.

      Great vise. Many years of great service from Craftsman, I purchased cushioned pads to go with mine for more expensive materials and it works wonderfully. Great tool and service that I have grown to expect from Craftsman.

      Bench vise

      The Craftsman 4 inch bench vise was of high quality and it was heavy duty enough for the work that i need to do around my house. It was very easy to install to my work bench. I would certainly recommend it to my friends.

      NiceVise

      Good choice in a 4" vise; jaws align nicely and has the ability to hold a round object below the jaws (not all vice in this price have this). Anvil is adequate and the vice should provide decades of service as long as you use it as a 4" vice is intended. Perfect for my needs.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      works ok

      it is not the best vise but not the worst either I have owned mine for 5 years now the anvil is a joke and the base plate needs more thought if you want to hold anything vertical in the jaws it needs to be right on the edge of the bench it ripped of the first bench since the plywood and 2x4 couldn't hold it with not much meat really to hold it down I had to make a base plate to mount it off from the bench since the jaws have cut outs in the for holing tubing you would think the distance from the base to the back jaw wouldn't be almost flush with the base bad design if I would say I use wilton vises at work and have never had that problem with them but I didn't need a wilton vise for home use but would like to think that I would be able to be able to use the vise vertically and not have to had made an adaptor plate

      SNAP! broke in half

      Base of vise cracked in half (at the base) while trying to press a bearing out. I really thought owning a craftsman bench vise would be forever. It was nice for light duty items like holding mower blades, and pipes while soldering, etc... However, I give it a one star because in the end, a vice that breaks in half is worthless.
