" Very sturdy. If anything, bigger that I expected, but does a great job. Bought to replace an old one that broke under stress. "

" Great bit of kit so far with the useful swivel feature. Good smooth action and good grip strength. Not had it long so time will tell how well it lasts. "

Incorrect Specification.
10 Jul 2013

" While choosing a vice, I noticed the unit weight was 19.6kg in the description. This was heavier than the typical 15kg for a 6" vice, and assumed it would be a heavier build. The correct weight is actually 14kg.
The design on the edge of the vice is usfel for stretching bands & belts that will fit, which is not available on a few other models. I'm not able to compare more generally with other vices, as I havn't used another of this size before.
Overall, I'm happy with the product, but feel I overpaid, thinking it would be heavier duty. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it was free delivery, but I collected it. Would be nice to get a discount for collecting heavy items. "

Not as good as a Record
12 Feb 2015
By HomeHandyman

" Just fitted to my bench as a replacement for a 3" Record that had given up the ghost after many years of use/abuse
First use manged to bend the handle - appears to me made of soft steel with no hardening at all
Also the ability to unwind all the way is bothersome "
