Customer reviews for Swivel Vacuum Vise

Swivel Vacuum Vise

Since 1910, General Tools has grown to become the recognized industry leader for specialty hand tools and instruments. The popular Swivel Vacuum Vise gives you the same great features as a standard bench vise, but in a design that is collapsible and easily transportable. The mobile vacuum base adheres powerfully to any flat, smooth surface, making this Vise an ideal choice for those frequently changing job locations. Equipped with hardened-steel jaws, the Swivel Vacuum Vise also features a universal ball joint neck which can be rotated 360 degrees and tilted 90 degrees in any direction. The entire unit folds for compact storage.

A 2-Door Fridge/Freezer with Plenty of Room

Lots of space plus the added benefit of a separate freezer compartment that not only adds more room, but cuts down the frequency of defrosting over 1-door models.
The refrigerator has 3 shelves (2 sliding, plus the top of the vegetable cooler) with 6 adjusting levels. The door hosts a dedicated area for 6 soda/beer cans, another area for a few taller jars, and the bottom area that will hold half-gallon milk containers or 2 liter bottles.
The freezer door has a shelf for TV dinners, frozen juice cans, or perhaps a box of popsicles. The compartment has a removable rack that separates the area in half.
The compressor motor has a soft hum that is hardly noticeable when it operates. The fridge and freezer share one temperature control that goes from 0-7. and is located on the right upper side of the fridge compartment. I have mine set at '5'. This maintains my fridge at 40 deg. F, and my freezer at 0 deg. F.
My unit stands 43 1/2 in. tall (just over 3 and a half feet) by 19 in. wide and 20 in. deep as outside measurements. It has adjustable legs to level it. The door handles are recessed and it is recommended that you leave 5 inches clear on each side for proper ventilation. This should give you an approximate idea for your space requirements.
The doors are simulated stainless steel finish and come covered in a protective plastic film that is removable. The sides are also covered in plastic that appears to be more finish than protective covering. I do have a couple of small bubbles in this 'finish' which is the only negative I can find if this is not a protective shipping covering. But even so, it is negligible.
I also purchased the 2 year extended warranty for $20 more to give me a total of 3 years, just in case. I believe after reading others' reviews, that most problems were caused by customers not reading the instruction manual. Two important things to note: if the fridge is transported laying down on its side, it has to be set upright and unplugged for a few hours to allow the refrigerant to re-settle. Secondly, follow the instructions when operating the fridge for the first time. This should save a lot of complaints.
Also, this does have an inside light for the fridge, but not the freezer.
Overall, I'll give this a rating of two thumbs up. Hope this helps.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight, Stylish

No, I do not recommend this product.
This vice is sold as a vacuum vice. The device will not hold for long no matter what type of surface it is applied to.
Cons: poor vacuum
