Irwin Record Woodworking Vice 7"
Good value Vice
I made the mistake of buying a cheap vice from a well known on-line auction siteâ¦â¦and as the saying goes, "buy cheap, pay twice".
I make country sticks/walking sticks, and part of the process is to straighten the shanks, this requires tight clamping of the unbent wood and then applying pressure to bend in the opposite direction - it is this pressure that broke the cheap unit.
I purchased this one and was very surprised initially how robust it is, very solid and all moving and working parts are excellent.
I particularly liked the fact I could attach a softwood face to the vice to protect the stuff I work o. Very happy with it.

solid wood working vice
i was looking for a second hand record vice for Â£50. as new ones can cost Â£100. Till i found this brand new one for Â£53 from screwfix. Jaws were alot thicker than i thought they would be great bit of kit for the price. Better than second hand

First class clamp.
Wanted a decent carpenters clamp for a workshop. The simple, solid construction is of the high standard one would expect from Irwin Record and I have every confidence it will last.
Coach bolts for installation would have been nice - hence 4 stars instead of 5 for features but that is only a minor criticism really - the clamp itself is the real meat in this terrific little pie!

This vice is excellent value for money if you want a well made but workhorse woodworking vice for your shed or workshop. If you look after it it should last you years.
Please note if you want to compare this vice to other Record vices, the model number is T 52 PD - Screwfix do not make this clear in the product description.
