Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best quality tool! I bought this thinking it does what I want at a reasonable price, but on opening the box I am dissapointed. It's features match the photo, but it has a very poor finish and appearance. The basic casting is rough, but covered in dark grey gloss paint. The jaws are poorly machined and don't meet fully and squarely. The main threaded screw sticks every turn, so the vice vice is not smooth in operation. The swivel locking bar works ok, but is a bit fiddly. Basicaly, if I'd had the chance to see before I buy, I would not have bought it. Based on other buyers reviews, maybe some vices are of better quality than others, because no one would give 5 stars to what I have just bought.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not my best purchase Judging by all the other reviews I wonder if I received the right product. Whilst in almost all respects the vice is fit for purpose, I found it to be poorly and inaccurately cast. The rotate mechanism leaves it tilted. The jaws do not close properly and have a gap at the top so small objects are not secure. Even the winding bar is distorted. The product looks as if it missed the machining process. Disappointed with otherwise good experiences at Screwfix.

Will this vice clamp to a table 60mm thick?

Asked by: homebulider
Hello Homebulider, The maximum clamping distance is 48mm +/- 2mm. Therefore would not be suitable for a 60mm thick table. Thank you for using Q&A.
