  1. Time will tell but so far very happy with purchase Review by Randall Rowe

    The perfect vice (Posted on 7/5/2015)

  4. Well built and good features Review by bad_taters

    I bought this after ordering and returning a Wilton 14600 which is Wiltons version of this vise.I sent the Wilton back mainly because the pipe jaws had no actual teeth,the casting was so poor the teeth were rounded and smooth like a pencil viewed from the side.Right out of the box the difference in quality was obvious.The casting is smoother and the pipe jaws are steel and replaceable and actually have gripping teeth.Side to side play is almost non existent at about .016 compared to about .070 on the Wilton.Also the Yost has notched main jaws for holding small tubing or bolts as small as 1/4 inch.Finally,the Yost is stronger and made with 65,000 psi Ductile iron versus 30,000 psi for the Wilton.The main screw has "0" play.The Wilton has a couple things going for it that Yost does not.The Wilton (on the casting only) has a lifetime warranty and also the base swivel has teeth to help keep the base from moving.But the jump in quality was well worth the extra $60 for the Yost.

  6. Yost 865DI 6.5" Multi Purpose Reversible Combination Vise Swivel Base Review by Happy Guy

    I just got a great new work bench from sears for Christmas. It even came with a stainless steel top. So, now I wanted a bench vise to finish it off. I picked this on because I work in Afghanistan as a mechanic with the US Army and, its what they have in our shop. We have not been gentle with the vise. I have seen pipe bent in it and broken bolts removed from rusty equipment while clamped in the vise. It is very strong and, very reliable. We hammer on it and hammer things that are clamped in it. We have a larger 8" model. I bought the 6 1/2". In my opinion this is one of the better vises on the market today. I don't know the Army to invest into cheep stuff. And, I believe this vise will probably last me for ever! (Posted on 5/24/2015)

  7. rcm Review by good vice

    Researched alot of vises and liked this one the best. MADE IN THE USA. Didn't need a super heavy duty vise for what I use it for so the price was right for me. Fast delivery. No problems there. Haven't had it long but so far it works great. Parts are nice and tight and move smoothly. I'd recommend. (Posted on 5/23/2015)

  8. Recluse Review by Strong well made American vise

    Excellent vise. The fit / finish and operation rival vises more than three times the cost. The two anvil surfaces and reversibility add greatly to the utility of this tool. I don't believe you will find an American made vise in this class for a better price. (Posted on 5/23/2015)

    Solid vise. Made in USA. (Posted on 1/2/2015)

  14. Extreme Clamping Pressure Review by Grease Monkey

    Bought this vise about 8 months ago and what a dream come true. Beats the crap out of competitors junk! Really like the replaceable hardened steel serrated jaws. My old vise had cast in place pipe jaws and when worn out I had to throw away the vise. (2) pounding surfaces are an added bonus! Thanks Yost for a quality product! (Posted on 10/16/2014)

  15. This is the vise I've been looking for! Review by Scott Dalgliesh

    After owning and using several different shop and machinist vises I've found the one that I love. The locking geared base will not swivel even when 2 people are using a cheater bar and cranking on it! This isn't some poor quality knockoff of American ingenuity, this is the serious vise I was looking for. The capacity of the jaws are impressive, but the ability to reverse and apply the same amount of torque to a larger surface with an anvil underneath has proven to be very useful! No problem applying serious amounts of torque to the jaw, the handle is large and comfortable and gives plenty of leverage. This is a great vise! (Posted on 9/28/2014)

    My husband loves his new vise! (Posted on 9/28/2014)

  17. USA Made, Quality Vise Review by B. Petersen

    Warning: if you can't handle a bad mamma jamma of a USA-made shop vise, then don't even bother with this, just go to Harbor Freight now. This is one heavy chunk of American Iron; the UPS carrier was complaining loudly. I use Wilton USA made vises at work, but their American-made line is outrageously overpriced. The Yost is my alternative. The first thing I always do with a vise is open it and reverse the direction. A good vise should move the jaws immediately in either direction indicating a tight tolerance between the screw and jaw. This one does that better than anything I've ever used. It's heavy, you can beat on it, parts are available. Great buy. (Posted on 9/28/2014)

  18. A great vise that will do everything I should need done ... Review by Retired Lawman

    Ordered after talking to the Owner, confirming made right here in the U.S.A. Received today, mounted and in use. A great vise that will do everything I should need done and should last 50 years or more. Well made with precise fitment. And USA is cast into the side. The owner said they did not do that up until about two years ago, because only the foreign stuff is required to be marked. But he kept getting questions about where manufactured. The reversing option on this vise will be very valuable on occasions, an option I don't have on my Wilton machinist. (Posted on 9/28/2014)

  19. Great vice. Good quality Review by Truth Seeker

    Great vice. Good quality. But check the dimensions because this is a VERY large vice that sits very high. (Posted on 9/28/2014)

    fast delivery. Vise is better than expected. (Posted on 9/3/2014)

  23. Sturdy and well-built Review by T. Araya

    Haven't had a chance to use it much yet but when bolting it to my worktable my first impression was that this is quite a sturdy chunk of iron! The action is firm and smooth and the extra flat surface on the back jaw is a great feature. If you need a workbench vise with extra strength and durability over the cheaper stuff, hard to beat this one. (Posted on 6/15/2014)

  24. this will last me forever Review by Ryan

    I was looking for a good vise made in the USA with wide jaws that was cast at 60,000 psi or higher. This vise fit the bill quite well and seems to be the best value. This vise is more than enough to suit my needs and it will last forever. The only problem is that my current workbench is not worthy of this vise, so I will have to build a better one. OH WELL! (Posted on 6/6/2014)

  25. This vise kicks but!!! Review by anthony burgess

    I was in the hunt for a quality high strength vise and this vise being made with 65,000 ductile iron is the one. 6 1/2 inch jaws with opening width over 10 inches this thing can handle anything I throw at it and I am so glad that researched and found this vise. Customer service is marvelous I requested the bolt pattern prior to receiving the device so I could build my welding table and Ryan Nelis from customer service sent me the pattern over email instantly, can't beat that! Although I've only had this vise for a short time now I can see many successful projects completed with the help of this quality piece of equipment. If you only want to buy a vise one time get this one, it has more than enough ability to handle most jobs. (Posted on 1/25/2014)
