I've never broken a vise.

You just need to put a longer pipe on the handle when you clamp onto something!   :D

 

Sorry to say I've busted a few!  Never enough power!! :(

 

BTW I've quit a few vices like drinking and smoking!  (15 years!!)

Haven't busted one since the family farm days..  Lots of stubborn equipment to work on then..  

 

I've been more tool friendly in the last few decades..  Good to see ya back around G..

I need to look closer at the vice in my basement, 94 year old guy left it in the house.  I can't get it to open up, handle turns but no go.  It looks like a decent vise, and its very old.
