Excellent little vice
28 Mar 2014
By
, Gosport
"Works well, Clamp held vice securely and steady - no rocking.
Smooth jawed so little risk of damage to job.
Lead screws and parallel slides benefited from a little greasing making the operation a lot smoother.
Useful tool to carry in van!

Wish all vices were this cheap
13 Jun 2010

"What a hunk of metal for the price. Seems to be very well engineered and pre-greased (perhaps a bit too much?) However, this will last for ever, and I think I will just find excuses to use it. My first job was to crush my Xbox, very satisfying."

Quality clamp-on vice
5 Jul 2014
By
, Plymouth
"I was looking for a sturdy small bench vice that was strong enough to withstand some reasonably heavy work. I compared a few and most were lightweight, badly made or just didn't give you any confidence. This one ticks all the boxes."

A vice but not a sin
29 Mar 2012
By
, Scotland
"A solid and reliable bit of kit for portable use at a bargain price. Excellent for light-medium work on small parts of the car, caravan, or boat, crafts, or anywhere you need a mobile but sturdy vice and light anvil. The swivel base makes adjusting the angle of parts as you work much easier and more convenient than trying to move around them. And fast reliable service and delivery from Screwfix, as always."

Great vice

"This is a great vice for the money -- very sturdy and lots of adjustment. The only thing that lets it down slightly is the jaws are a bit too smooth, so you really have to tighten to get a good grip"

"Very handy tool, great for throwing in the back of the van. Screws to just about anything solid, regulary gets me out of a fix. Grip could be better but I have always managed to do what I want it to do."

Great Value
23 Jul 2008
By

"Forge Steel Portable Bench Vice Swivel Base 3". For the price I was not expecting much, but once I got it out the box, it actually looked really well made. I have not used it a great amount of times but it seems reliable, and has several angles of adjustment etc. I even used it not attached, at the side of the road whilst working on the car. For 15 quid, you can't really go wrong."

"Very useful, a little smaller than I thought it would be and the screw thread on the one that I bought was a little stiff. However on reflection not a bad product for the price"
