1. A really bad grease used on this vise. Chinese use a cheap petroleum based cosmoline grease, the same that they use on their crappy SKS and Kalashnikov knock offs. This grease may be good as a rust inhibitor, but absolutely terrible as a lubricant in the long run. It will dry and gum up the lead screw over time. Which will lead to its excessive wear and tear, and finally total failure. So, I had to completely disassemble this new vise and wash each of its part with the rubbing alcohol to completely remove all its original grease.
2. Lead screw is very crudely made, has a lot of metal shards and chunks of metal remained after the machining process. I had to remove this stuff using my lathe and polish it a little bit. The same thing with the lead screw guide.
3. No washers under the jam bolt heads. If you going to tighten and un-tighten jam bolts to rotate this vise around its base, the bolt heads will damage base finish and eat through the metal. I had to put two copper washers under the jam bolt heads to remedy this problem.
I re-assembled this vise and lubricated it using synthetic Super Lube (with Syncolon) grease generally sold in Ace Hardware stores. This grease is the best from what is available for this purpose. Now my new vise is ready for its intended purpose and function.Read more ›
Don't make the same mistake I did -- buy this vise today, take it with you when you move, and enjoy yourself and every job you have to do forever after. Most of us put up with a hunk of junk and "never get around to" doing it right. Blink twice and you're 64 years old. -- Forget it, order this now.
Mine was not packed well enough for shipment -- the seller makes the shipper eat the return shipment costs, so the seller can't be bothered to open each carton and ram in the extra Styrofoam blocks that would keep this 46 lb monster from bashing itself to death. Check that the little rotation and tilt locking screws are not bent (the silver things -- everything else is gray or blue).
Finally, it is not true that the (main) serrated jaws are replaceable but the two pipe jaws are not. The text all over the Internet is wrong. There is a single pipe jaw on one side and double pipe jaw on the other, and the double jaw is replaceable. If that one has "bite", that's all you'll need. But where are replacements sold? Post a link if you find a source.
What a happy surprise every time I walk into the shop and remember I finally put a vise on the workbench that wants to help me and really can.
Ordered this to use as my wood and metal home shop vice. It came packed in longterm storage grease. It needed to be cleaned 100% and re-greased when i got it. The main cyclinder sliced THROUGH my gloves AND fingers many times doing it. I'm going to take my hand held rotary tool to it to remove the knife edge.
BUT that terrible junky-grease-wax kept ALL the parts from rusting.
Looks great, works great, takes my abuse w/o blinking, locks at every angle PERFECTLY (while i bang the bergezers out of steel i have locked in it).
After reading through other comments, I'm beginning to wonder on the quality of the metal used in the casting of this product. If it's made in China, I believe it's possible that a poor quality of the metal used to make the components may have lead to it braking so easily ... but then again I'm not willing to pay much more for a vise. I'm not sure if I would recommend the product to a friend. I would recommend buying a vise locally if possible and transporting it home yourself.

The Customer Service at JB Tool Sales was reasonable and responded promptly to emails. The company paid for the return shipping and after some confusion,(I was told that several of the listed vises had been returned due to shipping damage)I was refunded the purchase price. I would not necessary recommend the vise itself, but I was satisfied with the customer service I received through JB Tool Sales.
