2.5" Hobby Vice (Needs some modification) Great for electronics. £5.43 Instore @ Wilkinson

Found 10th Apr 2010Made hot 11th Apr 2010
I was in Wilko's today and saw a nice hobby vice for £4.93, which is larger, (slightly) better made and cheaper than i could find online.

The face of the vice is quite poor, its uneven, but Wilko also sell mousemats for 50p!

This provides a firm foam grip for whatever you place in the vice. It will be gripped firmly without any damage.

So 5 minutes and some superglue later, you have a great vice for electronics/hobby work.

Pics to follow in post 1.

I must confess... it is rather hypnotic

I heard that if Labour win the vote they will copyright Avatars and you will get banned from the Internet.

A Man in the Pub said it.

Payment by PPG suit you?

Excellent post - a good deal not just because of the price but because it can be improved with a little bit of DIY, making it an even better deal. So heat and rep added for showing us how.
