Forge Steel Workshop Vice with Swivel Base 6"
This seems to be a good solid vice. I does have a pipe clamp built in which I hadnt notice before purchasing which is very useful

Not as good as a Record
Just fitted to my bench as a replacement for a 3" Record that had given up the ghost after many years of use/abuse
First use manged to bend the handle - appears to me made of soft steel with no hardening at all
Also the ability to unwind all the way is bothersome

Very solid, weights a ton and needs solid bench to hold it.
Has all the features you could ask for.

While choosing a vice, I noticed the unit weight was 19.6kg in the description. This was heavier than the typical 15kg for a 6" vice, and assumed it would be a heavier build. The correct weight is actually 14kg.
The design on the edge of the vice is usfel for stretching bands & belts that will fit, which is not available on a few other models. I'm not able to compare more generally with other vices, as I havn't used another of this size before.
Overall, I'm happy with the product, but feel I overpaid, thinking it would be heavier duty. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it was free delivery, but I collected it. Would be nice to get a discount for collecting heavy items.
