Finally, I am going to get a vise for my work bench at home so now I can do AR barrel changes here instead of at work. What brand do you all recommend?

What I am looking for:

-Quality
-US MADE
-Reasonable price

Thanks.

Can't beat the 6" vise with pipe jaws at Harbor Freight for $35.00


I know it isn't made in the USA, but you won't find one that size for $35.00 anywhere.

definitly stick with US made. all you can find aroudn here are chinese, and they suck ass. I'd check old rummage sales and estate sales. I'm sure there's a palce you can get brand new us made ones, but most of the time you're gonan ahve to mail order it which will be pricey.

I LOVE th U.S.,but Is the quality all that better?

If I can find a US one I will buy it before purchasing an import.

I've got one I bought at Lowes....Yes, its imported. BUT. The quality is pretty good, and the price was right.

Wilton is great quality. If you need a strong dependable vice, it is the way to go. All sizes and prices available. Check on the web, but be aware of shipping costs.

A 5 or 6 inch Wilton will last you a lifetime.
