"I bought this for a specific purpose and needed a strong vice at a competetive price. This vice met both needs and has never let me down."

"I was expecting this vice to not be very sturdy due to it swivelling but its actually soild as a rock and can really take some punishment. the swivel mechanism is solid and works just perfectly, highly recommended."

Superb piece of kit
18-Jul-2008

"For a bench vice in this price range you will not find better. Mounting to the bench was a breeze with excellent location hole.
The ease of operating the swivel mechanism is simple; loosen the sucuring levers, position the vice then tighten the levers - weasy as 1-2-3.
The precision of the vice is superb, no slack like my old Record vice suffered with - Overall this is a quality vice at a price that betters branded items several times over.

ok for the price

"Ok workshop vice for the DIY user.
There is a bit of backlash on the thread and a fair bit of lateral movement on the slide but ok when it's clamping the work.
You can see why its 30% cheaper the the comparable Irwin vice.

Good Vice

"I can't say I'm an expert on vices however this seems to do everything one would expect. It's reassuringly sturdy, the parts move smoothly with no play and the swivel feature is really convenient yet locks down well."

Solid piece of kit
17-Nov-2008
By
, Bucks
"This is a lot more robust than many other budget vices. It says in the description "heavy duty" and it surely is. It really is built like a brick, it weighs quite a lot so a sound base is essential, but value for money is excellent and it would be a bargain at twice the price. For the home DIY'er or the small business workshop this is a great general purpose tool. Only downside - a set of soft jaws would be the only thing missing - but they can be picked up for very little."

A Toy Vice
29-Jul-2012
By
, Cheltenham
"Should have ordered a proper job this vice is 'toy' size. Open the jaws a fraction over 3" and it falls apart; the handle is so soft it bends and the jaws are far too agressive; they mark everything unless used with soft jaws. It's going back !"

Poor
25-Jun-2012

"This vice slips when tightening, has less grip than me holding a pair of pliers when trying to undo an m5 nut and bolt that had cross threaded, the winding mechanism gets tight half way along the thread and one of the locking keys for the swivel base is sticking out from the side of the vice when in locked mode so gets in the way. After reading the other reports I must be very un-lucky"
