I bought this for my workshop on the recommendation of a friend who was using it as a work vise for mounting firearms when working on them in his shop. I liked it so much that I bought a second one for use in my garage. it is excellent for clamping up large parts when working on them. The soft jaws provide a firm, non-slip, non-marring grip and the vise is easily rotated to optimize item positioning for the effort at hand. Great tool.
