General description

The Yost Vises 865-DI 6. 5″ multi-function reversible mix pipe and bench vise has a 360-degree swivel base, mounts to a workbench to offer clamping action for medium-responsibility applications, and is made in USA. The reversible front jaw expands the jaw opening for bigger applications. The 360-degree swivel base changes the direction of the jaws for correct placement. Hand-tightening the two lock knobs on the base secures its position. The ductile iron body gives strength for expanded life and has two flat portions that act as an anvil and extra work surface. The hardened-steel top jaws may be reversed to display either the smooth side for fragile things or the serrated side for improved grip, and they may be replaced when worn. The hardened-steel pipe jaws are serrated for improved grip and may be replaced when worn. The jaws draw closer together or farther separately by turning the vise handle clockwise or counterclockwise. The major screw that controls the jaws was uninterrupted rolled for high strength and is covered by a bar to protect it from damage. A rubber washer on either side of the handle prevents unwanted sliding when turning, and the balls on each end unscrew to enable substitute of the handle if worn. The base has four 0. 63″-diameter holes for mounting hardware (not included). SpecificationsJaw width (nominal)6. 5″Jaw opening (nominal)7″/11″Throat depth (nominal)4″/3″Pipe capacity1/8″ to 3-1/2″in general dimensions9. 5 x 7. 5 x 20. 5 inches (H x W x D)Weight49 lb. H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back. Vises use the clamping action of jaws to hold a workpiece in place for applications like drilling and sawing. Vise styles are categorized by how the device is mounted. As an example, bench vises mount to a benchtop; drill press vises screw to a drill press; and woodworking vises fit underneath, on top, or to the side of a workbench. A vise’s jaw opening and throat depth should be big enough for the workpiece. Yost Vises manufactures a large range of vises, as well as bench-mount, woodworking, and drill-press styles. The company, founded in 1908, is headquartered in Holland, MI.


Recent reviews of Yost Vises 865-DI 6.5" Multi-Purpose Reversible Combination Pipe and Bench Vise with 360-Degree Swivel Base, Made in US:

I just got a great new work bench from sears for Christmas. It came with a stainless steel top. So, now I wanted a bench vise to finish it off. I picked this on because I work in Afghanistan as a mechanic with the US Army and, its what they have in our shop. We haven’t been light with the vise. I have seen pipe bent in it and broken bolts removed from rusty equipment while clamped in the vise. It’s strong and, dependable. We hammer on it and hammer things that are clamped in it. We have a bigger 8" model. I bought the 6 1/2". I believe this is one of the better vises on the market today. I do not know the Army to invest into cheep stuff. And, I believe this vise will most likely last me for ever.



I’m inquiring if this was made in the US and if the steel is really 65ksi. My vice arrived with one of the 4 screw holes broken off of the base. I’ll update my review depending on return policy and the quality of my substitute.



As early as I opened the box, I knew I had a gem of a vice. I already knew it was a heavy son-of-a-gun. The machined surfaces are flawless, and I really like the 360 degree swivel. My old craftsman only swivelled about 240 degrees, and only had one lock down handle (the new one has 2). I thought I was going to miss the vertical v-notches in the major jaws, however while not as deep as on my old vise, it does have notches, on both ends. I’m still in the procedure of permanently monting the vise, so I have only played with it to check it out. I was going to give it 4 stars for that reason, however I have inspected it enough to be pretty sure it’s the finest I have ever used, and decades ago, I did work for some years in a small machine shop with some number of different vises. If my opinion changes, I’ll repost. I have a couple of projects waitng, one of which destroyed my old vise. Okay, I was the destroyer, not the project.

WoodRiver Universal vs 865-DI

Common is an excellent way 865DI of reporting this vise. The 3-1/2″ large by 2-1/8″ high jaws have a 5″ open capacity, in either a vertical or horizontal position. The faces are drilled to accept wood facings, there’s a small anvil, and the vise rotates 360 on its base, locking tight as early as an item is secured in the jaws. The handle and thread are chrome plated for durability. Screw holes in the base legs make it simple to attach the vise to a bench top.
