I like vises.

I picked this up at a yard sale yesterday. An early 5" Yost. Probably one of the best manufactures of vises in the world.

 It is a model 33 and weighs in at at a whopping 112 lbs. I will refinish this vise.

 

Lets see your vises.

Do you want a picture of the pile of pieces of historical past vises, or the one that is soon to join them but still on my workbench?

That means you are more careful probably than I am.  :smilewink:

 

No, seriously, I am probably one of the most careful with my stuff, but it seems I always broke vises, until I started getting a little more expensive.  Don't buy stupid junk, and it will last you.

I have two of the vises that swivel and rotate with the pipe jaws in the bottom similar to these. One is 6" the other 5". They are really nice for positioning work as the whole head rotates as does the base.

I have an old vise that used to crush Matchbox cars for fun when I was young.

I have beaten this vise for many years after my Dad gave it to me. It is great.

I had a 6" Craftsman that I really liked, only 6-8 yrs old, beat the poop out of it. I finally was clamping down on an auto part pretty hard and stripped the screw out of housing. Still got it under my bench, trying to figure out some way to repair the housing to reuse it again, haven't figure it out yet.

All you guys that beat on your vise..  If your actually setting stuff on it to pound on it can i suggest getting a anvil.. even a mid size 70 ish lbs.
