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
