Pony Vise 23530 by Adjustable Clamp.com --
This is a nice little light-duty vise -- All functions work as expected, with but ONE important exception :
The swivel lock is NOT solid and the vise body rotates under load about the lock screw. The problem is that the swivel-center shoulder-bolt operates in a sloppy cast hole rather than a machined hole. . I have successfully installed a collar or ferrule of brass tubing around the shoulder of that bolt to take up much of the slack and so to reduce the problem -- It is pretty good now. . The brass tubing I used to make that ferrule is 15/32" OD x 7/16" ID x 3/8" long. . The raw brass tubing is available from hobby stores.
However, it should be noted that the center bolt is much, MUCH too small in diameter for its application -- I have asked the manufacturer, Adjustable Clamp, to correct the design -- a larger shoulder bolt and a machined hole for it. . It will cost them only a few pennies.
A minor problem -- The finish cut on the anvil was a bit rough, inviting a finger cut on the edges -- I made quick work of that with a mill file and some carbide abrasive paper. The anvil is quite user-friendly now.
This vise resembles a little GREEN vise I dropped on my big toe 73 years ago -- That nail is still troublesome.
The only negative I have for it other than the swivel problem : Made in China ! . How much more would it have cost to make here in the U S A ? -- A couple of bucks, I reckon ! . Sad !

Good morning Mr. Hannum,
Let me take this opportunity to sincerely apologize for my seemingly misleading you into believing that Pony Tools would rather have you purchase an entirely new vice. I assure you this is indeed not the case.
* * * Miss Powell, please do not expect me to have any other opinion of your company than what I have observed with my own eyes: a broken vice made with cheap steel, and your website. Your assurance that Pony does not desire me to purchase a new vice, are hollow words I'm afraid.
Early this year, Pony Tools decided to completely discontinue all our vises because we lost the supplier of the vises.
* * * I and your other customers believe that Pony makes its own products. It is sad to learn that you are mere middlemen. You off-shored the work to sweatshops and requested they make cheap-steal products. Well knowing that they are inferior, from the many complaints, returns, reviews, and part orders you have received over the years, you continue with these practices, putting profit and ease over quality and service.
We were only going to continue selling the woodworker's vises (our 41012 and 40709 vises.) However, many of our distributors were outraged that the vises were being discontinued because they were key players in their inventory. Because of this, we decided to continue on with the vise program. We had to then find a new supplier of the vises, and after month's of searching we were able to do so. We are now in the process of replenishing our inventory of the vises including the 24545.Read more ›

Smaller than expected but if you just need a small, fairly touch vice this one works great. Do not buy if you need something super strong.Published 16 months ago by Tom
