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.

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!
