Talk about a family heirloom
June 6, 2010
from Winston-Salem, NC
My grandfather gave his Wilton Tradesman 8in to my father when he passed. My father has passed it on to me, as a house-warming present. There is no replacement for a good shop vise - ours has stood the test of time (and hammers!). This vise stood the test of me as a teenager - not to mention the knuckleheads I have working for me now in my own shop.
I have bought three other wilton tradesman vises over the years to continue outfitting my shop, and have yet to be disappointed in the quality.
