Wilton 2500 6” mechanic’s vise review

With the great range of different types of vises, each one of them should have something that is uniquely distinct from the others. What does this Wilton vise have? Well, here is what you should expect from the product when you go to purchase the Wilton mechanic’s vise;


Wilton-11800-648HD-Utility-Workshop-ViseThe vise has a huge anvil as compared to the previous models. the anvil is elongated to give a larger space for people to work on. Though the anvil is not used much, people who do not have another surface that is as hard as the anvil should benefit from the large nature of its anvil.

Swivel base

The swivel base rotates at a 3600 angle. This rotation gives the user a wider area to work on. The 360-degree rotation does not mean that it is barred from rotating any further than a full circle. You can rotate it to an infinite number of full rotations in the same direction.

The best bench vice for the money is also sturdy and has double lockdowns to give it more stability when on the workshop table. The stability is further improved by the user’s workshop table state.


Powder coat paint is applied on the outer surface of the vise. The paint keeps the vise scratch free for the paint is scratch resistant. You can therefore have a vise in good state for a really long time.

That is not the only the only thing the paint does. It also keeps the outer surface of the vise from being oxidized. The vise therefore lasts for a long time without rusting.


The jaws of this Wilton vise are steel in nature. They are toughened to ensure that every time that you secure a hard item, the jaws will not be disnatured into the shape of the object.

The jaws are also replaceable. When I talk about the jaws, I am talking about both the upper and pipe jaws. If at any time the jaws are damaged, you can go ahead and change them with new ones. This gives the vise quite a lifetime that you are going to appreciate.


Compared to other vises in the market, the weight of this vise is moderate. It weighs 69.1 pounds, which is remarkable for a vise this strong.

You may think that the vise’s weight is inconvenient for a portable workshop, but the weight is what will keep the vise locked on the table with amazing stability. The weight is just a minor setback that had to be in order for you to enjoy the other features and qualities that the vise has.


Out of 10 people, only one shows dissatisfaction with the quality of the vise. The common thing that they consider a setback is the 30 kg weight that the vise is packing.

Otherwise, no one has shown any regret about another feature of the vise, hence it will be the perfect choice of someone who has no problem carrying a 60-pound tool to the workshop.

How Safe is Ceramic Cookware?

Every mom wants to have the best and trendy cookware in the kitchen. With the current development in kitchenware, the earlier designs of cookware just seem to mess up the look of the kitchen. If you have been following the trends in kitchen utensils, you must have bumped into the infamous ceramic cookware. With the wonderful designs that they come with you still could not help it but wonder, is ceramic cookware safe?

The world of ceramics is a wonderfully decorated set of beautiful items, be it the cookware or stuff you display around the house. They might have their downside, but what does not. Let us take for example, all the other stuff in the kitchen, like knives, are not those dangerous too? The dangers of ceramic cookware are just the same as all the other best cookware pots and pans out there, but let us just discuss them and you may be the judge of the magnitude of the danger they pose.

Lead poisoning

This is the first downside of the ceramic cookware that has managed to taint the wonderful picture displayed by the ceramic cookware. The glazed ceramic cookware has been detected to contain some small amounts of lead. The lead might be transferred from the ceramic cookware to the food that you are cooking.

If that happens, your body will automatically have traces of lead in the system. With the lead circulating around your body your chances of getting seriously ill will be high. Lead can lead to many diseases, even the most dangerous ones like cancer (dont you wish you were Clark Kent right now).

On the other hand, the lead levels in the glazed ceramic cookware are really, really low. The earlier form of petrol that was used in cars used to contain a higher value of lead composition that this ceramic cookware. If the people used to live with those conditions healthily, then why wouldn’t you with ceramic cookware that may or may not contain lead.

Not all the ceramic cookware contain lead. There is the glass type of ceramic cookware that you can use to substitute with the glazed ceramic cookware. The glass ceramic cookware does not pose any threat of lead poisoning and still possesses the smashing design of the glazed ceramic cookware.

Glass shattering

Here is a threat you are likely to face every day. Glass can make up some really wonderful designs after they are molten into the desired shapes. They can however turn out to be wolves in sheep clothing once you get to face their dark side. Broken glass can easily pierce through your skin. having pieces of broken glass in your home is not the picture you have in mind when you are thinking of buying the ceramic pots and pans set.

That is however what you are supposed to be picturing when you purchase them. Once the glass ceramic cookware falls and shatters for whatever the cause, they can cause a big mess in the house. They could pose a great danger to babies and little children who havent yet discovered the danger behind the beauty of glass.

So is ceramic cookware safe for you. You are now the one who is going to answer that for yourself since everything ha
