US Vice Manufacturer & Brands List

BenchCrafted

Typical wagon vises have the nut attached to the bench, necessitating the screw to protrude past the end of the bench when the vise is opened, causing both a nuisance and a potential hazard, plus sloppy action when the vise is opened. The Benchcrafted Tail Vise is different in that the screw is attached to the bench, while the nut traverses the stationary screw. The dog block is positioned alongside the screw to allow the full length of the screw to be utilized. The great benefit here is that the screw remains in the same position at all times, never protruding past the end of the bench.

Wilton acquired the Warren Tool Group in late 1990’s. With facilities now in three states across the country, Wilton had managed to corner the entire vise market. The Columbian Vise, manufactured in Cleveland, OH was the other "Made In USA" vise and was included in the Warren Tool Company merger. In 2002, the Wilton Tool Company and it's recent merger company, Warren Tool were acquired by WMH Tool Group (Walter Meier Holding Company AG). The manufacturing of the Wilton industrial vises was moved from Schiller Park to Carpentersville IL where they are still manufactured today.
