    A Real Brench Vise?

    So, I just broke my 6th bench vise. You used to be able to buy a vise and it would last forever.

    Do they may a vise that actually stays in one piece anymore?

    Ouch. Mine is a 20+ yr old forged vice. I haven't had any issue taking props off either.

    That's a real vis. Most of the ones the sell now I think are targeted to Home DIY's so they can hold as pencil while they sharpen it

    As much money as I have spent on vise's I am seriously considering Martins tool.

    here you go, lifetime warranty. You break it take it back get a new one. Just keep your box and receipt. Might not be the best but I broke my wilton a few years back. Then I had an enormous one that would never break but was 200 pounds. I have only broken one of these.

    You get what you pay for. Forged steel.

    I'd get a 6" version of this: http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/F-Series-Vises/index.htm



    Best price I saw for them: http://www.amazon.com/Ridgid-66997-F.../dp/B001T9J68I
