Forge Steel Portable Bench Vice Swivel Base 3"
okay but not great
Cheap vice - you get what you pay for:
The guidance shafts were coming loose immediately as they are not fitting properly. Also the vice handle doesn't turn very well as the locking pin is too long and hitting the leadscrew.
Best feature is that the vice can be easily clamped to a desk and therefore ideal for DIY.
I would recommend investing a little bit more to get something more reliable and better built

Great little vice
I needed a small metal vice which I could attach to my workbench when needed - but I could store when not required - it needed to be metal as I would on occasions use heat to bend metal whilst holding the metal in the vice.
The Forge Steel Portable bench vice easily met all these requirements whilst also providing the added bonus of a small 'anvil' area which does provide extra flexibility when working hot metal!! Very well engineered - provides all the functionality and flexibility I was looking for plus really good value for money - highly recommended

This vice is very sturdy; I have never had it shift at all at the base it's clamped with. No need to overtighten either so it doesn't leave any trace of having been there. The anvil is a bit on the small side but good to have it there anyway.
Build quality is very reassuringly sturdy and has held up well in long term use. I've used it for wood and metal, filing and sawing etc.
I bought this after buying a different brand from elsewhere that was absolutely awful. This was the same price and 1000% better. Perfect unless you need a bigger one.
