To say I love my new vice would be something of an understatement. I freaking love my new vice. My old vice was getting pretty worn. When I used it to do the pipes for my air system it was very evident. So when I went looking for a new vice I stumbled on this unique design from Wilton. It's reversible so you can have an extra wide opening if you need it. Honestly, I just like the extra anvil on top. I've found it to be very functional.

I got my Sunex 20 Ton press mainly to do the rebuild on the T-5 transmission that's going into my 1979 Fairmont. I've since used it in many other projects and I have to say, I'm very happy with it. Now, 20 tons may seem like a lot, but it may not be enough for every application. The Ford rear wheel bearing comes to mind. Although I think a 100 ton press would have also struggled in that situation.

Something else to consider is all the other equipment you're going to need to use your press. Sunex has done a great job with this press and given you plenty to get started with, but you may find that you'll also want to pick up a bearing splitter and perhaps some other steel blocks for positioning things in the press.

That said, I think this press works very nicely and I'm always happy to say that something was made in the USA.
