Rated 2 out of 5 by from COULD BE GOOD The 90 degree mounting faces are not square, the guide rods are loose and the clamp faces do not close evenly. Even when the guide rods are nipped up, the jaws don't close evenly because the guide rod threads have not been drilled square. I looked at 5 and picked the best of a bad bunch. If a bit of care had been taken in drilling and positioning the guide rods squarely, this vice would be getting full marks. Beware!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb value I bought this as I'm setting up a small workshop in my garage for a spot of D.I.Y. I've got a few projects in the pipeline. It is really good value and is spot on for what I need. I had it fitted to my bench complete with wooden jaws in under 30 mins, used it a few times and does what it says on the tin. At this price it's a no brainer, especially as I'm only doing a bit of diy really.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected at all. Overall I feel this was a pretty awful vice, mainly due to the play between the rods the vice runs along, this come undone and looser the more you use and it is annoying to be constantly tightening it up. The grip it gives as well is not up to the standard of better makes, Irwin for example. On another note the handle has threaded ends that have screw on caps, these work themselves loose when sanding or planing and then the rod falls from the vice, yet another inconvenience. All in all it isn't great and should be viewed as an absolute beginner level vice. But if you are wanting the good stuff I'd pay more and get your moneys worth with a much better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality & Value Very sturdy for the price and easy to fit. Added bonus that it extends so far (to 6"). Great value and quality. Would recommend.
