          This vise in general is a decent quality and is better than nothing. By that I mean all clamp on vises have their limits as they are meant to be portable and small. This is a three inch jaw set up and most homeowners will find this to be a handy alternative to a large permanently mounted vise on their bench. This can hold 2x4’s, small pipe for cutting, lawn mower blades, etc. And those are the types of things most home owners need a vise for.

          The overall quality of the tool was good and should hold up for years under normal use.

          This is a good general drill press vise. I worked in a machine shop for years and anyone that drill holes sing a drill press is crazy not to use dome kind of clamping device. The vise was boxed well and arrived in perfect shape. However, when I tried to open the jaws it was very difficult to loosen the lead screw. I sprayed WD40, still no luck. On the bottom of the movable jaw there is an allen screw that I was able to loosen and this freed the jaw. After it released I never had another issue.
          Overall the size is good for most home drill presses and can be used on small projects. In this price range you are getting a good value and name as well as a tool that you will find to be quite

          Dewalt has put together a good starter set for American threads that most DIYer and home mechanics will find handy. The Taps and dies are a nice quality and leave a nice crisp thread. I used this set several times to chase some threads that had been cross threaded on an old engine I was rebuilding and I had achieved great results. The die handle is nice quality and comfortable. The tap handle was ok; nothing great, but I have not seen much better quality in the high dollar set’s either. I get the impression that Dewalt is serious in their desire to break into the hand tool market and this set won’t disappoint. I will say that not having a storage case at all is a negative for me.

          The shelves are very easy to assemble with no tools at all. I put them together in about 15 minutes and they can be adjusted to suit your needs. I had planned to sue this to store lightweight items such as paper towels etc, but after assembling the unit I realized that it could handle a lot heavier load. I decided to use it to organize my large collection of power tools. The unit held almost all of my power tools in their cases and the shelves showed no sign of bending.
          I wouldn’t use this type of unit to store something as heavy as an air conditioner.

          This shelving looks nice enough that you could use it in a pantry for storage and not feel like it should be relegated to the basement. This unit can also accept a wheel kit, but once it is loaded, I do not feel comfortable recommending that you move it around without fear of tipping.
          The finish and quality are a good value for the price.

          Answer: 
          The only feedback I can give you is that opening the unit takes very little effort, but there is some resistance beased on the weight of your saw. But clising the unit and moving it around is very easy, once closed the unit acts like a handtuck, easy to move and manuever.

          I purchased a set from e-replacement parts. They cost was almost as much as the entire unit. if you do order them, look for the "complete bracket" otherwise you are only buying parts. Again, these were about $80 a piece.
