I need some good vises for my high school shop class. I currently have the Jorgensen quick release vises 10” face. Budget is an issue. Any thoughts? Any links?

I like quality tools but with a tight budget you might look at Harbor Freight or E bay also woodcraft has discounts for schools.

interschola.com….......they are selling old used school equipment from schools that have closed their wood programs. You might be able to pick up something from them.

jdwyk,

Don’t forget, begging always works too. Hit the BIG companies & supply companies (ie. Woodcraft, Rockler, and HF) with your school tax ID (or equivilant info) read and you might get some gifted to you. Worth a try. Call and to whoever is in charge of public relations. Have a good sob story ready!
