Editor's Review: Installing a Cast-Iron Vise

by Matt Kenney

review date: May 1, 2009

The Anant 52-1/2 ED Bench Vise is a trigger-release vise with a 9-in. jaw width. It has a 12-3/4-in. opening capacity and received a measurement of 0.05 in. in the racking test. Although this product has good vertical alignment, it rated poorly for ease of use. The quick-release nut does not re-engage well.

The Anant 52-1/2 ED Bench Vise is available from www.highlandwoodworking.com  (Product Number: 199302).
