nice but dim
A GOOD WOODWORKING VICE ,HOW EVER THE PRE DRILLED HOLES IN THE FACE OF THE VICE CHEEKS COULD DO WITH BEING A BIT BIGGER HOLE .BUT ALL IN ALL A GOOD TOOL.

my vice revealed
Anyone who has struggled to work on a piece of wood knows there is no substitute for the firm grip of a vice, leaving both your hands free to be accurate and workmanlike. This is an excellent inexpensive tool which took about twenty minutes to install; coach bolts through the bench, which I felt needed wide washers to spread the load from the bolts, and 3/8" wood facings fitted to both jaws to protect the piece being worked on and the tools being used.

Classic piece of kit
Just to clarify some of the earlier comments I've posted a photo of this installed in my workshop. I used 50774 M6 coachbolts to attach it to the bench.
It's just like the old Record vice I used years ago and much cheaper than trying to find one of those secondhand.
It has nice touches like the pre-drilled holes for screws to secure the jaw protectors (they're made out of offcuts from pallet wood).
About the only problem I found was that one of the sliders wasn't fully screwed into the front plate but that was easily solved.
