    3.0 out of 5 stars It will get the job done, but I would recommmend getting a better one., October 26, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    This vise is decent for a $40 vise, but it does have problems as a consequence. I ordered this vise to help complete my 80% AR-15 Lower Receiver, and it did get the job done, but it was a bit of a hassle. I was able to complete the 80 lower with this vise (and I wouldn't be able to without it), but I would much rather have spent an extra $40 dollars for a better vise. If you need a cheap vise, this will do the job, but I would recommend a higher quality one for more accurate applications.

    PRO:
    - Sturdy Design, Heavy and Clamps well
    - Holds well if you've made no mistake drilling
    - Cheap

    CON:
    - Very high tolerance, wiggles a lot, it can move up to half an inch when drilling down
    - If the drill bit slips during a plunge with the drill press, it will move out of position
    - Turns well in one direction, but not the other
    - Packaging is not great

    5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a charm, February 16, 2016
    Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    Read allot of back and forth reviews so I took it apart, cleaned it, adjusted it and greased it. Works like a charm. One side note, the metal sliding adjuster, I drilled the 2 extra holes for the screws to hold it better, works without a problem.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Took four tries, but finally got one that's close enough to usable., July 9, 2017
    Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    Ended up purchasing four of these over the course of four days to get one that was close enough to be a viable starting point. I know at this price point I wouldn't be receiving perfection, but the first three were ridiculous.

    I've never quite understood how it's cheaper to sell shoddy product that has to be sent back at not-my-expense repeatedly instead of just charging a few dollars more for success the first time. Is this some sort of weird Chinese recycling program, where scrap metal is melted down and cast into tools and then foisted off on Americans with the hope that they just accept it?

    Anyway:

    Vise #1: Was mostly okay, except all of the mounting holes on one side of the vise were cast over. Thought about drilling them out myself but thought I'd return it since I expected it to be a one-off issue, so back it went. I suppose that would be my own mistake.

    Vise #2: Top slide required two hands to rotate the crank, despite lubrication and adjusting the gibs. Crank handles were somehow covered in blue paint (although this isn't really a problem, I found it quite odd). So back it went.

    Vise #3: Bottom slide would jam near the far end of travel, turns out that the bottom leadscrew was bent near the end. Vise leadscrew threads seem to be offcenter or something because it was both too loose and too tight in a single rotation. Top slide required two hands to rotate the crank, despite lubrication but I didn't bother with adjusting the gibs given all the other problems. So back it went.

    Vise #4: Top slide required two hands to rotate the crank, but was able to get it down to reasonable single-handed effort after adjusting the gibs and cleaning the ways. I ended up keeping this one.

    All four vises: The handle on the cranks look like they had an attempt to be swaged in placed, however, all of them were loose. I suppose at some point in the future they'll tear out because they're loose and I will replace them with small bolts. Additionally, all of them paint on the sliding surface of the ways, which makes me think the castings are machined, then painted, then slapped together without any adjustment or care that it actually works. Therefore, buyer beware that you'll likely not get something usable on your first attempt.

    That being said, and as other reviewers have pointed out, the next step for something like this tends to be in the hundreds-of-dollars range. At the time of purchase, this vise is around forty dollars. I'd have gladly paid up to double that for something that didn't waste my time with having to return junk to Amazon repeatedly.
