Good find op , thanks :-) just need a bench to sit it on now for my new shed :-)

Those jaws look a bit rough!

You've forgotten the merchant in the title

Homebase seem to be using the wrong picture on their website. It shows a 6 ton logo on the side which is for the 6 inch vice not the 4 inch.

Description doesn't look right either -

"Clamping pressure: 3000kg"

That is likely to be correct. An Acme thread is very efficient. Just look at the ratbag screw jack that a car is supplied with. A "proper" vice can easily exert 3 metric tons.

I can't find a vice with that spec on the Irwin site though...

You get 'soft jaws' for clamping delicate pieces, 100mm are under £4 delivered on eBay

Bought it. The part number on the box is T3TON3VS. Weighs 35 pounds. Be cautious when lifting and check the handholds in the box before lifting. Next job is to measure & buy some bolts to clamp it down.
#26
Bought it myself, pretty light compared to my big Record engineers vice, but a good smaller vice for my other bench. Perfect diy vice.
#27
picked up this morning and just sneeked it into the house. "we need a bigger bench"

Yeah it's a real vice, not a little light hobby one. Hopefully last a lifetime, my big Record vice is from 1930's and has seen some amount of useage, came out an hgv garage.

It isn't correct - kg is a unit of mass, not pressure; pressure being force/area, and force being mass x acceleration...

3 ton vice, similar to how presses etc are rated in tons due to the pressure they exert on an object

Presses and jacks are rated by their max static load, which is taken to be a mass, but is actually a force. Just find it annoying when manufacturers don't seem to understand basic engineering and mistake pressure for mass!

A vice handle is a lever, rotational force is converted to clamping force via the acme screw, clamping force is measured in lbs or kg

Reserved last one near me, fingers crossed. Would have liked one with a quick release mechanism, but this price is excellent. Heated.
