I'm a bit worried about the reviews!


Its a hobbiest's vice, they probably expected a proper wood workers vice for £20.

Though only 4 reviews and one of those is positive, you would have thought they would have sold a lot more than that. Anyway those reviews would probably have been at full price.

If you can't bolt it down don't buy it. Useless these clamp fit ones, I own a record 2 1/2" clamp fit and no matter how long you clamp it down it always comes loose. I was reefing on the bar and even after what felt like a study fit after 20 mins of filing with a work piece clamped down it worked itself loose from my workbench.

I could be a hombiest - just don't want to!
Let's face it - no one buys macallister for quality. It's cheap for a reason, but it might just get you out of a pickle.
For a fiver it's easily worth a punt.

Thanks for pointing that out, fat fingers and small keys. I should read what I've typed before posting.
Portable vice for my portable worktop for my portable trestles. Perfect
People have unrealistic expectations for a fiver. If it actually holds something steady its an absolute bargain.

Next thing people will be complaining about is that the jaws aren't hardened.
