i know i know. harbor freight is hit or miss – and mostly miss. my vise now is a 6” one from lowes that isn’t parrallel, and i think cost me like $25 or $30. this wasn’t much more. it’s larger, and seems heftier. heres the link.
my workbench is 4×4 and with a plywood top. so it’s not like i’m going by the badass book of benches or anything. in fact here it is. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30437 i have since added bench dog holes the line up with the cheap end vise. the vise isn’t so hot for holding stuff, but it does work well enough w/ bench dawgs for planing.
i’m thinkhing this HF vise will go on the front.
ANYWAY – does anyone else have one of these vises? i know it’s not the best, but seriously – $35? that’s just a decent night at the bar.
