Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. I bought this vice just to hold small items steady whilst drilling holes in them, which it does. I am not going to use it continually day to day so cost was a factor. If, like me, this is what you want then it works, you may need to smooth off the odd corner and maybe do up screws but heck for this price that's OK by me. I found fixing it on my pedestal drill was fiddly but doable. As for value for money, if you are going to use a drill vice a lot go for a more expensive one, but if you are looking for a vice to hold the odd item then this is your vice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Bad Finish on product Sturdy construction doe's it's job. BUT before I could use it I had to put one of the face plate screws in as it was loose in the box. And before I could do any work I had to file all of the rough edges off. I had cut myself just unpacking it. Very poor finish and not up to standard

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible quality I have never had an issue with anything I have purchased from Screwfix until today. The vice will be returned tomorrow. The quality is awful, the castings are incomplete, the flat plate underneath that stops the moving jaw lifting cannot be used, the jaw castings are incomplete and the grub screw that goes into the lead screw does not locate correctly. This is without doubt the worst tool I have ever purchased. There are good reviews on here for the same product so I guess I just got a bad one which doesn't give me much confidence about the quality control.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sort of ok for the price. 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.

distance between slots for mounting

What is the distance between the side slots - as in distance across the screw area - need to check it will fit to my plate (drill press)
Asked by: DIYjunkie2
Hello DIYjunkie2,Slots on the sides measure about 13mm wide x 68mm long. Small variance from one side to the other, and between the same items. 12mm bolt probably OK, however this is cast iron and the metal around the slots is quite thin. Caution needed if fixing to a bench so as not to crack the iron. Should be OK on a drill-press table as these are machined flat. thank you for using Q and A.

Does it really weigh 2592 kg? and what are the fixing hole centres and its o/all width?

Asked by: makesshavings
Hi makesshavings, It would appear that a decimal point was missed out and the item weighs 2.5kg. The slots on the sides measure about 13mm wide x 68mm long and could accept up to a M12 bolt. Width of around 100mm and length 125mm
