Verified Purchase
I purchased this vise because it was a forged steel vise that had a high tensile strength. It also has removable pipe and standard jaws. However, when I received the vise I noted that the movable jaw moved independent of the main screw (in other words, I could move the main screw in and out but the movable jaw did not move with the screw). Upon further inspection, I noted that there is a holed drilled in the main screw shaft for a retaining pin or bolt. I found a small diameter screw in the box which I suppose is the retaining pin but the corresponding nut to hold the screw in the main screw shaft was missing.

Pros:

- Vise was solidly constructed
- Machining seemed well done
- Vise was well lubricated
- Fit is adequate
- Finish is excellent
- The anvil is big

Cons:

- The vise arrived in poor condition as noted above
- Screw function was rough (somewhat gritty)
- The swivel base does incorporate gear teeth as part of the base-locking mechanism;
- The slide was not uniform in shape towards the rear
- The retaining pin could have been secured better and beefier

For ~$212, I expected better.

Post Script: I checked out A LOT of vises and did a great deal of research before deciding to purchase this vise. It seemed to be the best overall in strength, versatility, and manufacturing. My other option was the Yost 750-DI. I am exchanging this vise for the 750-DI; hopefully, that vise arrives in good working order. This is the third vise I ordered from Amazon and the third vise I had to return due to defects in the product (first was damaged in shipment, second came incomplete from the manufacturer, third - this vise - arrived in defective condition). The first and second vises were not Yost vises but chi-com mass produced vises in the same category.

Fit and finish are very good. Opening-closing the vise is smooth. Lots of travel. Unclear if there is a travel stop (I realize many might not agree with me on this as a feature).

Swiveling is acceptable, but grabby. The base is cast and the raceway is lumpy/pitted and has paint overspray. I buffed and greased the raceway, but you need a Dremel tool to buff all the surfaces. Since I rarely swivel, not a big deal for me. CAUTION: Wear safety glasses and gloves.

There is a safety sheet (Be sure to mount the vise properly), but no instructions as how to mount the vise "properly."

The vise comes in a plain brown double-box from Yost and is then packed in a box by Amazon for shipping. There was no shipping damage.

There is no mention of accessories (a marketing opportunity lost). Vise jaw covers are very useful and available on Amazon.

The Yost 750 DI was appealing, but extra features at roughly the same price translates into design trade-offs. I view this vise as baseline quality for me; I like my fingers and toes.
