If you’re seeking out a bench vise that features a large anvil work surface then the Wilton Bench Vise might be a perfect choice. Featuring a large anvil, you can hammer out metal and other materials with ease. No fighting for space with your vise. Once attached to your work surface via bolts, the vise can also be spun around 120-degrees on it’s swivel base so that you can attack your project from the most comfortable angle.

We appreciate that Wilton continues to forge its products from strengthened steel for longer-lasting durability. This bench vise does feature a permanent design that must be attached to work surfaces using metal bolts, all of which makes it one of the most durable on our Best Bench Vise list, and probably the best tool you can have in your workshop.
