That's about the best price on that vise you will find.Wilton sells one nearly identical and probably also made in China for a lot more money.

What shape parts are you going to be clamping?

I keep thinking I want one for the drill press-90% of the time I'm just poking holes close to the center of things. Save some layout.

The new Shars catalog shows a 6"??? for about $170. Twice that for their USA brand.
