Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Looked like a good value vice for occasional DIY use but found the jaws were skew to one another. Saw this reported by another reviewer but assumed it was isolated case and took it back only to find replacement had exactly same fault. Seems there is very poor manufacturing or quality control even at this price. My advice - pay more for a quality make. Screwfix staff helpful and gave refund without hesitation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Acceptable quality vice Pros: This vice, at under 20 pounds, is well worth the value for a hobbiest or beginner woodworker. There are two support rods that provide right and left support adequately. Cons: There are many faults. Overall, the vice is not ideal for me, but will serve its purpose for now. The support rods work loose under strain, and constantly require retightening. The jaws, after use for around three months, do not meet up level or square, and to securely secure the work piece, it has to be shimmed with a wedge or piece of cardboard. The front jaw is constantly shaking and has never been stable. I soon hope to buy a metalworking vice and adapt it to woodworking, as replacing the current vice would be too much hassle, and too expensive.
