  1. This vice is perfect for my needs Review by kinkajou

    This vice is perfect for my needs. I was able to mount it to a workbench in my garage, and it held a cabinet together that I was trying to fix. Perfect for small projects. (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  2. Take My Advice for a Good Vise Review by Christine Zibas "AnythngArt"

    Well made tools are a joy to use and last forever. This vise profers up good casting quality, which has a well milled, clean surface. It works well straight out of the box and is easy to assemble and use. (However, I suggest oiling all of the surfaces to ensure it functions with ease right from the start.)

    The vise can be mounted equally well either on a drill press or to a work bench (my choice). There's good opening and closing action, and the jaw opens to a maximum of 3.75 inches. Made of durable iron, this vise will last your lifetime if used in a normal manner. The vise features 4 removable clamping horns that can grip a variety of objects. This vise is perfect for DIYers and craft people like myself. (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  3. Great for small, delicate, precision work, but beefy enough for heavy use. Review by Paula

    I'm using this vice for precision drilling. Sometimes I've mounted it on a rotary indexing table so I can drill precisely positioned holes in irregular objects. The vise itself is very heavy and very precisely machined. Although I'm using it for delicate jobs, it easily has the strength to do heavy work. The dogs are well made and fit perfectly, but what really impressed me was that the travel is as smooth as very expensive machinist's vises. I think it's a bargain. (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  4. This is a great little vise Review by J Hart

    This is a great little vise. It's small enough to fit easily on a workbench, but has enough strength to handle just about any project. It's well made (very heavy, of course) and works great. Love it! (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  5. Good Vise Review by Jerry Helsing

    Very good, compact vise. It is smooth to operate and the mounted very easily. If I had a gripe it's that the vise didn't come with any rubber/plastic covers so it didn't leave marks in whatever is in the vise. For small household needs, I really like this thing. (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  6. Solid small vise! Review by Big Dawg

    This Yost MFV-3 vise is solid! It's heavy and should be able to handle plenty of jobs thrown at it without having to screw it down permanently to a work table. The adjustment lever is nice and foldable and feels like it will last. Great vise! Very excited to finally have a good one at home! (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  7. Perfect for what I do! Review by Frogsong

    I use a vise very often in my work as a silversmith and in other crafts. My old vise was pretty beat up and wobbly. I am so happy to have this one to take its place. While my old vise was just a plain Jane, this vise allows me to do so much more that my old vise did not. Drilling straight holes in my metals has never been easier. This vise also holds my thin and small metals much better than my old vise which was getting so worn out that it wasn't gripping well anymore. And I love the low profile design of this vise.

    It is a very well made, heavy duty vise in a small package. Exactly what I needed. I am thrilled with this vise. (Posted on 9/9/2015)

  8. Built to LAST Review by Ashley S

    Remember "back in the day" when tools were built with such a high level of quality that you handed them down to your children, who handed them down to their children, who handed them down to their children, etc? This is one of those tools. This vice is heavy, solid, and is built with such strength and quality that I have no doubt that it will be in my family for generations to come.

    The design is simple and straightforward, the clamping horns work flawlessly, the handle and closing mechanisms are all well built. The anvil attachment is a nice bonus and can be put on an angle or the top of the vise. If you are looking for an industrial strength vise in this size category, this is the one.
