We set out to create the best heavy duty vise on the market and along the way we had a couple decisions to make on where and how to manufacture this vise.
This vise has two versions, a US and a Taiwan made version. Why are there two versions and what are the differences?
- The two vises are identical in design except for some “USA” lettering on the side of the US vise. This is the only design change.
- The main difference you will see is cost. Our US vises are cast and machined in the US which requires a substantial investment in tooling, fixtures, and processes. We are proud to offer this option, but the learning curve has been more difficult and lengthy than expected.
- Our Taiwan made vise is made by a factory which is already experienced and tooled up in making this type of product, and even they admit it’s so large that their own production capacity is limited.
