Larry Jaques (vise)

I lost my bids on used Wilton vises. Instead, I bought this vise that
you recommended:

It seems to be heavy duty enough to be usable, and I will not use it
for pipe holding. It was on sale for $44.

You may rue the day you bought a large, swivel-jaw vise from HF, but if it locks well in place, without the jaws turning, you're in luck. I took another look at mine and it's a 6-inch, not 5. The main reason I bought that specific vise was that it was very large. I could use it as a press for U-joints and it would take a beating as well. And for under $25 (1970s dollars), it was a good value. I'm still beating the hell out of it nearly 40 years later. It was my main bending jig for years, too. Speaking of which, I need to anchor that HF bender to a bench some day soon.
G'luck with your 5655.

With that big ole vise you have, just hold the bender in that. A piece of angle with one leg bolted to the bender & the other leg held in the vise. Unless you have plenty of bench space to dedicate some of it to the bender.
