I am looking at buying a new general use vise, and want a pretty hefty one. Not being able to find reviews, or look at samples, I have seen pictutes and descriptions only. Seeing only marginal differences in prices of the larger models over those just a little smaller, I think I am basically considering the Record 53EXXX ($130) and the Jorgenson 41012 ($120). I think they have comparable features, with the Record having a wider opening and the Jorgenson having a wooden handle. The Record is also about 5 pounds heavier. Any thoughts on features, or experience with these or other models. Should I consider others. Where should look to purchase?
