    Default Vise Jaw Liners

    Looking for a local place that has them. I have worn out both my sets. I found them at Harbor Freight about 2 years ago, but I can't find them in their online catalog... hate to drive over there for nothing.

    These are aluminum with magnetic base and rubber liners. They are GREAT for clamping guns in the vise

    Anyone know if places like Lowes or Ace has them? I really don't want to mail order them...

    Jerry -- those look great!!

    I use a pair of aluminum angles with a barrel groove milled in but they, of course, are not magnetic and the three hand method is required.

    They are nice. At least when I first bough my HF ones they were nice.

    Until the glue holding the rubber pads pulled off.

    And the soft rubber destroyed itself after several barrel clamps.

    And after the magnet strips broke off after dropping them on the floor.

    Until all that, they were great. The good thing is they are cheap - less than $10 IIRC. That place sells them for $8 but I'd rather pic them up in person like I did last time...

    I know you'd rather pick them up locally, but here's something similar in PA. They're a little pricey, but they're built to last.

    Coyote that's something like I'd rather have, thanks for the link.

    HCP I had a set of those, and didn't care for them. The one rubber pad came off after the second or third use.
    I don't get to Lowe's or Home Depot much but I'll look the next time I go.

    Coils I agree, but they are nice for when you don't want to screw up the finish.

    I normally use home-grown wood jaws. I get something like 3/4" plywood and cut a notch in it so that it straddles the main part of the vise, and that way it won't fall off. My dad even lines his with carpet. The problem with wood is that it doesn't hold up so well when I crank the vise down so tight.

    Pookie check out the ones in this thread.
    They are urethane with embedded magnets. They are made by craftsman (Sears)
    The grooves are great for barrel work.

    Those are great! Since they already have the grooves for the barrel, you can't lose! That is the most frustrating part of the aluminum ones because I have been pressing down on the gun for one reason or another (reinstalling rear sight, installing FCG, etc) and the gun starts to walk on you. Those grooves would eliminate that altogether. Thanks for sharing!

    Yes thank you, I guess I'll be making a trip to Sears instead.
