    Milwaukee "vise grip"

    Was in HD browsing around using up a gift card and noticed they were stocking several styles of "vise grips" made by Milwaukee. Maybe I'm late to the show, but these are the first I've seen of the M brand on them.

    Anyone used the Milwaukee "vise grips" and how do they compare to the Irwin vise grips?

    I did not know they made Lineman pliers until a few weeks back when I bought a used pair.....pair of pliers?.....grammatically correct? They are pretty nice. The new Milwaukee's look like some good Craftsman vise grips I got in that deal as well.

    I have two sets of Milwaukee branded vise grip pliers. Each pair is missing a jaw which has broken free of it's soldered mount. I've got to take them back for exchange but the jaws are much harder than the Irwin branded.

    I like them, I got the little 2 set, one big one small, the only thing that i found weird was the release lever is built it, so you just pull it apart and boom off it comes, decent quality, unique looking, but they are just a reiteration of something thats worked for 50+ years

    my 2 cents, if you run a bunch of Lincoln machines, these would blend right in hahahaha

    I picked up several of their vice grip style clamps. They are definitely a huge step up from HF. They get the job done.

    I may have to pick up a couple of the Milwaukee vise grips and give them a try as well.

    ANYTHING is a step up from the Horrible Fright clamps. I have a set that, on occasion, I pick up by mistake. You can really tell the difference in the way they clamp...sh!tty.

    Yeah they do work great, far better tham the harbor dead weight ones. they have a hole in the turn screw, i guess the idea there was once it was clamped you could put a screwdriver through it and tighten it even further....never done it, but its an interesting feature!

    Pair is correct- there are 2 pieces to the Pliers
    Pair of Scissors
    Pair of pants ( pants were originally 2 pieces tied together at the waist)

    Dunno about the Milwaukee brand though, haven't tried them
