To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have used it only once so far, but it seems quite adequate for my purposes. I expected it to be a little larger, but it is sufficient for me. My main concern was whether I shall be able to clamp it onto my workbench which is just short of 1 inch in thickness on the side. This vice fitted there, although barely so, without any problem and its grip on the workbench seemed strong enough for light to medium work. The jaws opening is sufficient for any workpiece that is less than 1.5 inch thick (to be safe, no thicker than 1 inch) for a firm enough grip by the vice. The vice jaw will open a little bit further, but I wouldn't recommend it for use at that extremely wide open position, particularly because there seems to be no stop latch on the furthest end of the sliding rail. The jaw lips themselves are about 2.75 inches long and should be more than enough to hold a medium-sized workpiece. In my limited experience as a Do-It-Yourself'er if you need a vice with longer pair of lips and/or jaw opening that is >>1.5 inch, you better get a heavy vice that can be bolted onto your workbench. Any heavier/larger vice clamped onto the side of your workbench would make it a very unsafe combo. Whether you can find any larger and heavier clamp-on vice is another matter.
Happy to find the "Made in India" label in the box. The vice itself is very solid. It is very useful for home use, but not for heavy duty use. My only complaint is that the jaw detach if you turn it beyond the widest opening.
This product is sheer brilliance, one couldn't imagine that a product so small would be this sturdy and accurate. But then, we were pleasantly suprised. This is a quality product that is that is entirely casted. To be honest, for the utility and performace of this product it is rather economically priced. Please give this a try and promote small businesses of our country. Trust me you won't regret buying this!
