" Robust piece of equipment, just right for DIY jobs and probably more demanding use.
A great buy at the offer price.

Cheap & functional

" Not great, the jaws don't stay parallel under load either way (across or up-and-down), and there's no quick release, but it's cheap. For the price, it's fine - case of you get what you pay for. "

Woodworking vice
10 Sep 2013
By DrWood
, Northumberland
" Wanted a woodworking vice for a new bench that I had built, could not justify the expense of a Record vice so opted for the Forge Steel 8". Probably the only criticism I have is its top face to bottom face size, this is not that big, so I had to remove a considerable section from the bench's support rail to accommodate the attaching lugs. To compensate for this potential weakening of the bench I used a block of thick timber screwed& glued to the rail and the underside of the bench. That apart I have no qualms in recommending it, the big plus is the width the jaws open which I have used some 13mm oak flooring to face. "

A vice that won't close!
7 Mar 2012
By lendeadneck
, Cumbria
" I bought one of these and the 2 jaws were so far out of alignment that the handle wouldn't turn! One of the bars the moveable jaw slides on was several degrees out of perpendicular. I always thought that Forge Steel were a reputable company but their quality control is obviously non-existent. Screwfix responded immediately and I am awaiting my replacement vice - I hope the quality of this one is somewhat better. "
