Cant speak for the other vise not "taking off" due to its poor quality, however Pipe Vise has been doing quite well after starting three years ago (its my full time job now!). We are just normal guys down here in Texas (master plumbers and engineers) who love to build tools that work. So, we aren't just some random company popping up to make a quick buck off of cheap tools. We are die hard tool enthusiasts that have created awesome tools that techs in all sorts of different industries use daily. Some of our industries served include plumbing, hvac, agriculture, medical, defense, and many more. When we started, we never would have imagined things would take off the way they did, but its been a fun ride!

As for the "cheap" jaws, we have thousands of units out in the field and have never had any returns or complaints about our teeth going dull. In fact we pay extra special attention to the processes used in the creation of our teeth.

Im not going to post any links or anything as I am sure there are advertising rules, but feel free to check out our instagram page (search pipevise on instagram) to see what some of the biggest names in plumbing have to say about our tools. Our page is full of all sorts of cool pictures submitted by customers.

Lastly, we are in no way trying to eliminate the need for a chain vise as they are great for threading pipe and pipe fitting. However, they are a bit of a hassle (and slow) when pre-fabbing in a home, on a jobsite, a roof, or in a mechanical room etc.



Also, hate to be that guy with just one post that comments on a thread, but I guess we all have to start somewhere.
where are the free samples for evaluation???

Speaking of vises, I just changed the handle on my bench vise from a 1/2"x7" that kept bending to a 5/8"x15". Those are balls from 1/2" ball valves on the ends. I tapped them to 5/8" and threaded the ends of the rod.

Threading the rod was a pita. Tapping the balls was annoying. Drilling the hole in the pommel out from 1/2" to 5/8" was extremely easy. I was terrified I would chip/chunk/break the bit several times and that it would take me forever to drill that hole out but I was wrong. Took me like 60secs.

Want privacy from the diy/hacks? Too bad, the motherland has fallen, freedom is dead.
