I would guess they are off shore made. They are selling them at 1/2 price what they sell for here:

larin vises at SHOP.COM with a 1 year warranty for what that maybe worth.

Seems Larin makes machinist vices but they are substantially cheaper than USA made.

I have noticed that some of the cast iron clamps made off shore have reduced the thicknesses of the castings, but for home use they might work.

If you can, take a short piece of pipe with you when you buy them. I've got some that are around 30 years old that I think I got from Sears and they work great. I bought some more later, probably Chinese, and I have a hell of a time sliding them up and down the pipe. Sometimes I have to hammer them to move them. It might be due to a metric to Imperial conversion mismatch. Make sure they work smoothly or you'll be ticked off every time you go to use them.

If they're even the "same" quality as Harbor Freight's you'll use them for a lot of things.

Can never have too many clamps of any kind!!!
