  • Chain Vise or Yoke Vise?

    Do you choose to use a chain vise or a yoke vise? Why?

    We use a chain vise becuase it what we've always used. I've used a yoke style once or twice and it did the job. We use our vises to cut pipe up to 8", 1/4" thru 3/4" all thread rod, channels, iron angles, wood. We use them also to make assemblys in the field for fire protection standpipes on 4", 6", 8" pipe sizes. The chain style vise seems to be a little more flexible than a yoke style vise.

      Chain. Ability to grip a variety of different materials.

        If I could only have one or the other, chain vise wins.
