" A good general purpose vice, some slack in the lead-screw and sharp edges that needed removing, other wise OK for DIY jobs and hobbyist. "

" Does what it should do, holds jobs while you drill. There is no play once the clamp is tight. Once its all greased it will work for as long as I need it. Great value. "

useful drill press vice
18 Sep 2015
By
, Marlborough
" Ideal; as I only occasionally need one I couldn't justify a normally-priced one. This is fine, I haven't noticed excessive slop or poor finish as some reviewers, so maybe their quality is variable.
Mounting slots don't line up well for my old Draper bench drill, but haven't found managing that difficult.

Check to ensure it fits

" I bought this for the Titan SF13N pillar drill (also from Screwfix) but it doesn't fit onto either of the bases. It was far too big to be bolted on using the available holes on the Titan. Other than that it seemed sturdy enough but can't vouch for reliability as I returned it. "

A Decent Vice
25 Jan 2012
By
, Lurgan, NI
" This isn't a bad drill vice. I was attracted by the cheap price as it is a lot cheaper than record alternatives. It allows you to apply reasonable clamping power. One definite downside is the screwing jaw...this is quite sloppy. Apart from this though it isn't a bad vice!! "

Quality is ok.

" Yes it has a lot of side to side play, but I found this can help with some strange shaped objects.
This model has more choice of where to clamp to the drill table than most models.

" Hard to fault this product, does what it's meant to do - at a good price. Maybe not the best or the cheapest - but it's definitely a great deal.
Cheers. "

" Not bad for the price. A little sharp around the edges and the sliding jaw could do with being a little bit smoother to close. Not bad though.. "

" There is a lot of play in the lead screw and jaw, the finish is poor with rough edges, however, purchased for use on my welding table and did not want to pay a lot for a good one due to welding splashes etc. so for this purpose, it will be fine. If I had purchased for my drill press or milling machine, I would have been disappointed. "
