    First thing that came to my mind was the "made in China" sticker on the bottom..... my buddy told me he put some tubing in it walked away and heard a pop then the tubing crashing to the floor..... I think he was locking it down a little too tight as well and over time it gave up the ghost.

    I'm no expert, but they say there is too much cast in stuff that
    comes from China. Don't know if it's true, but it's what i've heard.

    Well after a few warnings of it falling apart under a load unexpectedly I took my sledge hammer to it tonight .... it broke about as far away from the welds as possable and the welds held up very well to the torture.

    I broke (2) Harbor freight rotary vices within 10 minutes. The guys at the store couldnt believe it. Gave me 2 more. Popped first time I tightened it. I got my cash back. Grizzley Tool rotatarys heave been holding up well.
