  1. Great vice Review by Fourshots
    Quality

    The vice is a great value and a quality piece of equipment. The head rotates from standard jaws to pipe jaws. When compared to vices costing double triple or more it is a great value (Posted on 5/12/15)

  2. Excellent Vise in this price range Review by Big Guy
    Quality

    Outside of quality vises that are multiple times more expensive, this vise is of excellent quality and meets all my expectations. Of any import vises, particularly Chinese, this vise is superior by a large margin and on par with some of the domestic vises.

    If you are interested in a rotating vise, this is really the only quality option other than the Swindens Vises which are far more expensive. DO NOT buy any other chinese import rotating vise, the quality is not to par with this vise, and with the Amazon pricing, there really isn't reason to buy any of the others.

    My impressions of the vise, the weight is impressive in comparison to the competition which would suggest thicker and stronger castings, and another important note is the use of higher quality, Ductile Iron which is much stronger than the brittle cast iron that most imports are made of. The jaws are well machined and sharp, and the pipe jaws work well as they are designed. The lockdowns for the swivel mechanism work well and do a good job of locking the vise into position. The spring loaded pin that holds the angle of the head of the vise works well and slips into one of 12 position. An important note, the pin holds the angle of the head so there is some play while the jaws are open, however once the jaws are clamped down, the vise is rock solid and will not rotate. The leadscrew of mine was well machined with no burrs or crappy threading anywhere along the screw, and the handle is free of defects as well. The anvil is flat and retains some swirls from machining, but is functionally satisfactory. The slide of the vise is well machined and has no defects or burs along its length and so slides well through the body of the vise.
    Out of the box the vise functioned smoothly and can be operated one handed. For good measure I applied graphite (lock-ease in my case) to the slide and between rotating portions of the body which further improved the function of the vise, as well as some Permatex Anti-Seize to the leadscrew which has graphite in it as well, and makes the leadscrew turn very smoothly.

    Pros:
    -All around the price is reasonable
    -Excellent weight for a 5" vise
    -Good execution of the multi-purpose functionality
    -Well threaded leadscrew
    -Casting free of defects and well painted.
    -Slide was smooth and well machined
    -Well-machined jaws
    -Vise locks down solid once clamped
    -Shipped double boxed with wood board in bottom

    Cons:
    - Not able to rotate the workpiece once the jaws are clamped due to design
    -Slight play when jaws are open, however it is minimal and non-existent once clamped.
    -Swivel mount is a bit tricky to use due to the balance and must be held level.
    -Would have preferred a larger handle.

    Overall this is a solid vise at a good price and should give many years of service. Just remember that this is a vise and not a hydraulic press, and that cheater pipes and hammers are NOT good for any vise. (Posted on 5/12/15)

  3. Under Rated High Quality Vise Review by Toyo496
    Quality

    After researching heavy duty 5" or larger vises for weeks I decided to purchase the Yost 750 DI. It is big, strong, heavy and very accurately tight through out its motions. I compared it to all the other multi jaw vises available through HD and other stores and the Yost 750 DI weighs 23 lbs more than any other multi jaw vise!!! 23 lbs more!!! And has a Lifetime warranty! I spent some time on Google Images comparing it to other vises and it is much bigger!
    When I revieved the box I was surprised to see how beefy and heavy duty it was constructed. All of the jaws are precision cut and have sharp serrations on them to hold what you are working on. The vise cycles through it's pases very smoothly. I was concerned that it would not compare to the the $600 plus Wilton and Snap On vises I use at work, but I was wrong!! I would take this vise over any of the 5 high dollar big name vises at my work. The quality is much better! I used four 5/8" grade 8 bolts to mount it. Keep in mind this thing weighs 70 lbs, so be careful and use help while mounting it to the bench. I truly think this is the best vise you can get for $200 or less.
    This vise really doesn't need any improvements, but if I where to make it a hair better, I would increase the diameter of the sliding handle a few millimeters (it has never bent, but I see similiar sized handles on other vises bend) and I would apply some form of clear coat to all of the machined surfaces to prevent any long term rust from setting in.
    I mounted this vise to a Semi truck brake drum filled with concrete, I welded casters on the side so that I could move the beast easily around the shop, overall weight is over 350 lbs! On the back side I have a JD2 Notchmaster tubing notcher mounted. (Posted on 3/18/15)

  4. Yost vice exceeds expectations! Review by Njoseven
    Quality

    This vice was not a disappointment. I don't like buying things without seeing them, but I had to since the stores don't carry them. Rest assured you will like this vice if you get it. (Posted on 2/3/15)

  6. Incredible value, best quality you will find for $200 Review by bmwman91
    Quality

    I love this thing. As far as shop tools go, it is a general rule that anything that claims to be a multipurpose tool is going to be, at best, mediocre at all of the tasks it claims to work for. This vise is one of very few exceptions. The swiveling head is incredibly useful, and it is the highest quality vise I have seen at this price point. It is still no $1500 US-cast vise (and this one is NOT made in the US), but for $200 it is a tremendous value. The casting quality is visibly better than other ones you will see for the same price: no voids in the casting, no odd rough patches, the machined surfaces are cleanly milled and the powder coating is evenly applied. I did fully disassemble this vise when I got it and re-lubricate all of the sliding surfaces with some high quality grease, and I carefully filed some of the sliding surfaces because a little bit of powder paint got on to them, but other than that it is great.

    The only flaw I found was in the lead crew. The ACME threads were cut a little sloppily, so I stuck it into the lathe and cleaned up the thread faces with a fine triangular file. With that little clean-up task done, the lead screw turns nice and smooth. One other gripe, and it is a small one, is that the vise jaws will hit the mounting bolts if the jaws are oriented vertically and you are turning the thing about its vertical axis. It's easy enough to deal with, but I feel like it could sit a little higher to avoid that. One last note I have is about the locking pin for the vise jaw rotation. It is small, and make SURE that you have clamped the jaws down before smacking your workpiece around. That little pin looks like it will shear off pretty easily if you hammer on a loosely clamped workpiece. It has not happened to me (yet), but is seems plausible.

  7. You will not be Disappointed with the vise or the packaging. Great Vise. Review by Sandan
    Quality

    I purchased this vise to replace an old six inch vise that I have had for over thirty years but it lacks functionality. I am very please with this Yost and it has all the functionality that I require. Excellent quality and very heavy. Apparently they heard the folks that complained about the shipping because it was in two heavy duty boxes with wood liner on the bottom and cardboard spacers to hold it in place. I don't think you could damage it if you dropped it off the truck. I was very impressed with the packaging. (Posted on 12/26/14)

  8. Tough Vise Review by Kyle
    Quality

    This is as tough as they get. Very heavy duty vise with great versatility. Bi-axial rotation makes it perfect for all jobs. (Posted on 12/25/14)

  9. Solid, versatile, large., Review by Joel
    Quality

    The instructions ask for at least a 2 inch thickness of wood to which to bolt it down with 5/8 inch bolts. It is built for that kind force. I added a couple of levels of plywood to my bench so I could take advantage of that. Even with that much force it doesn't wobble once the work is clamped in it. (Posted on 12/22/14)

  10. Best vise for homeowner by far! Review by Rennat "Rennat"
    Quality

    I just got it yesterday and opened it. Installed it today. Fine craftsmanship and nicely finished blue paint. I have used a lot of vises and this one could be used in a commercial setting. Smooth rotation of all parts. Plus 60000 pound ductile iron. I would give it more stars if possible. Very happy and would buy again. Thank you Yost and Amazon. (Posted on 12/19/14)

  11. Garrett C Review by Multitasking heavyweight
    Quality

    This thing is a beast!!! I absolutely love having 'someone' who never tires of holding my crap!!! Definitely a heavy-weight with it comes to a shop vice, but it's definitely worth the price! I love this model's versatility with flat and pipe jaws and 360 x & y axis (Posted on 12/17/14)

  12. use this on my welding table. just got it ..., Review by mark a turik
    Quality

    use this on my welding table. just got it and it is mounted. the advantage of this yost is the 3-d positioning that i can now hold my work.
    really look forward to having this heavy vice in my work tool collection. (Posted on 12/3/14)

  13. Better than expected Review by Patrick
    Quality

    This is just a great vise. It works well right out of the box. It was packaged well in both cardboard and wood. It may have had a scratch or two on it...but if you are planning on using your vise instead of looking at it then this is of no concern. I really only have room for one vise and this is multifunction. I have this in my shop at home, but I would feel comfortable with it in an industrial application. Five big stars, all the way.

  16. DrewH Review by Awesome vise
    Quality

    My vise came packed nicely, double boxed in a system that wouldn't allow it to move around much, and it also had a piece of wood that protects the feet. There isn't a scratch on it. I do agree though, if you did have trouble, you wouldn't want to have to pay return shipping. No regrets from me though, this thing looks great, and works great! (Posted on 6/12/14)
