Milwaukee Portable 6” Leveling Tripod Chain Vise 48-22-8690

Ridgid has been making chain vises for some time and now it’s sister brand Milwaukee’s turn to try their hand in the market with their own model, the Milwaukee 6” Leveling Tripod Chain Vise 48-22-8690 model.

While there are some similarities between both chain vises such as a three foot tripod design and folding legs, Milwaukee takes a different direction and makes the unit fold up even further for even better portability as is shown below.

As you can see in the above image it can fold down almost flat for low profile storage when folded and the integrated handle makes it easy to carry to location.

You’ll also notice the top work surface is larger giving you more real estate to serve as a small work table top to store a few hand tools or material while you work. And you can also purchase an optional lower shelf if additional storage is needed. And as part of its name, one of the legs is adjustable so you can level the chain vise. The other two optional accessories include a PVC coated pipe jaw to protect PVC coated pipe and a stainless steel pipe jaw which reduces corrosion while cutting or welding stainless steel materials.
