Bench Vises- Know the Difference

As you know, it’s important to find the tool that’s best for the job at hand. While both the Ultimate Grip Forged Steel Bench Vise and Rotating Head Bench Vise would make a great addition to your work bench, each has its own special features that set them apart from each other and other vises in the industry.

Ultimate Grip Forged Steel Bench Vise

It’s all in the name. This vise boasts an incredible 9,900 lbs. clamping force and is made of 90,000 PSI tensile strength forged steel. This type of forged steel 26% higher tensile strength and 37% higher fatigue strength than cast iron, making it strong and great for long-term durability. It’s practically indestructible! 
With a 360 degree rotating swivel base and large anvil, the vise is versatile and easy to adjust based on the needs of the project at hand. Equipped with high-strength machinist and pipe jaws, these jaws have stronger gripping power than other surfaces. Even better, they are replaceable so the bench vise continues to perform at its best even after years of service.
The Ultimate Grip Vise is available in 4”, 6”, and 7” jaw width.

Rotating Head Bench Vise

The Rotating Head Bench Vise is designed for more diverse work with a base and head that both rotate 360 degrees. With the additional customization, the vise is ready for all kinds of woodwork, pipe work, metalwork, gluing things to together, and more! Remarkably strong with 6,600 lbs. clamping force and made of heavy duty, ductile, 60,000 PSI. 
The head of the vise features a pull pin that locks in the position of the head at 12 set points, each within 30 degrees. The pin allows for quick locking and unlocking, and insures that there won’t be any drifting while it’s locked in place.
As with the Ultimate Grip vise, the Rotating Head and Base vise also has a large anvil for additional workspace and knurled jaws that firmly grip objects. 
The Rotating Head and Base Bench Vise are available in 5” and 6” jaw width.

While there are some design differences, both vises are made of premium quality material, built to last, and would make a great addition to the shop.
