No Comparison...
This vise is not for the faint or heart. With that being said, this vise is a BEAST! I use it for numerous applications, but mostly for woodworking in my shop. There is noting it will not grab and hold. For more delicate projects you can put in the soft material inserts that have magnets attached to them to have them stay in place. The quick release is awesome and easy to use. its extremely heavy, and I attached it to my woodworking bench table. The quality of materials used and the construction of this vise are unmatched. If you want a vise thats gonna work time and time again, for a very long time, there is no other vise that compares to this one. Hope that helps you when you're deciding what vise to purchase.

Great vise
I use this vise for woodworking'
It is very easy to use and I really like the pivoting clamp plate that self adjusts to tapering wood.
The raising clamp plate is much better as a single one inch peg can damage the wood.
I like the quick release and the fact that the gear drive is enclosed to keep the sawdust off of the gear.

Super Duty !!
Just a well build vise that is really heavy... fast clamping and great hold. What more could you want from a vise. and the soft jaws do NOT mar the wood !!
