Fireball Tool Bench Vise

What's special about this bench vise:

This vise has a specially designed 4 point swivel base designed to match up with holes on most common welding tables.  Whether you have a table with 5/8" or 16 mm holes, if the spacing is on 2" centers this vise will fit.  You can quickly bolt and unbolt the vise anywhere on the table as needed.  When mounted in the correct orientation, the back jaw will hang over the edge of the table, allowing you to clamp tall objects in the vise.

You can use your own bolts to mount this vise to a work table or other workbench, or you can also purchase with our 5/8" diameter shoulder bolts for bolting to welding tables.  Purchase the shorter bolts for 1/4" thick tables, or longer bolts for tables between 1/2" - 3/4".

Other Great Features:

This vise is made from forged steel rather than cast iron, which has a higher yield strength for a comparable size. The 90,000 PSI tensile strength of these forgings allow the vise to be lightweight but with a comparable strength to vises with twice the weight.  Since it's welded together, if you ever take things a little too far with a cheater bar you can repair it relatively easily.


  • 90,000 PSI tensile strength forged steel
  • Black Oxide finish on the jaws and other hardware
  • Replaceable flat jaws and pipe jaws
  • Adjustable, machined guide rail ensures smooth action
  • 360 Degree Swiveling Base
  • 4 Mounting Holes with 4" x 6" center for mounting on welding tables.  Holes are 0.650 inches in diameter.
  • Large machined anvil surface on the rear.
  • Hammer tone blue powder coat
  • Made in Taiwan

Copper Jaws for Fireball Vise

These are sold as a pair, 4" and 5" models available, use them for holding delicate parts. As far as we know, we are the only company which sells both a vise and machined copper jaws made for those vises. Please note, these jaws are made from solid copper bar stock, which means they are extremely soft and will tarnish. We think they're a great addition to the vise, but it's a part which is meant to take wear.

These copper jaws are machined in the USA.

    I was looking around at home improvement stores for a bench vise but when I saw this vise on the Fireball YouTube channel I knew I wanted that one and it’s been great. It opens and closes very smoothly and is exactly what I was looking for.

    Can not say I’ve ever seen such a a Solid little vise. Love it love it!!!!!! The only two things I would have liked to seen different is a double V notch cut into jaws that hex bolt heads could be clamped into and a little more aggressive teeth on the pipe vise jaws. Other than that
    This is a Precision made, Reasonably priced, shop vise that will not break do to it all steel construction. You might bend it, but you’re not going to break it. I can not count the number of cast vises I have broke in the past. Thanks Fireball Tool

    I am so glad I bought this Made in the USA vise from Fireball Tool. Excellent craftsmanship and after watching Jason try to destroy this vise, I am confident that this vise will last a lifetime!!! Solid work and I am looking forward to adding several Fireball products to my shop!

    Works very well with the build pro table.use it when you need it and remove it from the table when you are doing large projects. Easy to mount any place. Just drill your holes on the 2” grid pattern and mount it any place you want it. Best vise I’ve seen for money. Now I want the 5”.
