I like the reaction jaw to move straight in and out, with no oscillation of the jaw at all, on the way in, and out.This keeps things square in the jaws when they are clamped. I also like the reaction jaw to move instantly when the vise handle is turned, a sloppy handle makes it tougher to get things clamped when you are jigging things up in the jaws. I probably do a bit more fabrication with my vise then most guys, but, if you spend time with a file working parts in a vise, or, polishing small parts, it is easier and quicker in a tighter vise. The Wilton vises have that precision, most other vises do not. A fair point is a utility vise in a maintenance shop might not need that precision, but, it doesn’t hurt a thing if it is there. Most maintenance shops don’t have great vises installed, however.
I’ve seen Japanese copies of round bar vises that come close, and the York vises, built in Europe, do, too.

Best,
Ted

A frustrating vise issue can be when using the metal jaws. Some of them have a slight taper to compensate, but cheaper vises can spring out a little and only hold a piece along the bottom edge of the jaws. With soft jaw faces and using post vises, it’s a non issue.

I had a made in Japan craftsman vise that I gave to my brother a good while ago. In general, they were pretty nice for being in the affordable category.

I'd love to see pictures of this work.

Look you've trashed me and trashed my vise and workbench...not having a clue as to what you are even looking at.

Do you think that someone could checker ivory or wood in a vise that moved ?

The miles' of detail work that's went through my Wilburt vise would astound you Ted.

To begin with, you have seen some of the fabrication I have done. Do you think you go to Lowe’s to buy a vise mount like the one that sits under my Wilton?

I doubt you recognize fabrication when you see it.

Don't get mad but...the only "fabrication" I've witnessed has been in your mind.

If you were running or helping in the program, thanks for helping the wounded warriors; if you were in the program, thanks for your sacrifice.

David,
Someone who is disabled, but trying to learn to be a productive craftsman deserves a lot of respect. Thank you for your efforts toward that end. A good mount for the vise would be an excellent start.

Best,
Ted
