BESSEY 2-3/4 in. Swiveling Vacuum Base Vise is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vise for small crafts This vise is intended for smaller craft type projects. The rubber base of the unit attaches to smooth surfaces using a vacuum system (similar to a suction cup) which is created when you turn the handle at the bottom of the unit. The device attaches surprisingly well to any smooth surface. The vise itself is on a swivel which locks and unlocks using a turning knob just below the swivel so it can be used at a variety of different angles. The handle that tightens the clamp of the vise does not turn very smoothly but it does an adequate job. Since this vise attaches with the vacuum system and it is not permanently attached to anything, it is not intended for use with heavy projects but it does a very good job for smaller jobs such as crafts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tight little package This tough vice has worked out nicely for my smaller precision projects. The quality of construction is apparent right out of the box. Heavy cast metal parts are finished nicely, as are the machined and chromed mechanisms. It functions intuitively, however the over-sized ball head adjustment ring lock took me a second to find (being painted cast metal and large it blended right into the base, but is really quite a positive once you start using it). The suction base grips strongly, better than I had expected. It had a little trouble with the most beat up sections of my butcher-block workbench, but still grips exceptionally well on any relatively smooth surface (and locks down extra tight on smooth finished wood and polished stone). The vice clamp has a good range of positions it can be locked into and can shift from perpendicular to parallel quickly and easily. My sole, and very minor, issue is that the rubber grip surfaces on the vice are very easily removed. This is really only an issue if you are working on a more delicate project and not using much tension on the vice. This is perfect for any precision small to medium sized project that requires a precise repositionable vice. Very impressed overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good desktop clamp for the price This product does what it's designed to do and does it very well. It's fairly solid in terms of design & manufacture; most of the parts are solid metal and the ones that are plastic are not utilized in any key points of stress nor support. My only minor gripe is with the vacuum base: the surface needs to be 100% smooth in order for the suction to hold properly. Glass, melamine, & most metal surfaces are perfect for this, but if you have a workbench with unfinished wood that has some rough grain to it, or a mottled/textured finish like mine does, the vacuum doesn't hold as well. I've found that wetting the bottom of the base slightly helps this issue a bit but doesn't solve it entirely. Overall, I'd recommend this product to anyone who is using it for light duty like I am: I use it to hold my soldering iron in place while I solder wires & audio jacks, so I'm not placing anything with any significant weight into the vise.

I'm not the usual demographic for this, but embroiderers all over the internet are talking about this vise, which affixes to a smooth surface via a vacuum base and removes easily without leaving a mark. It holds an embroidery frame solidly while you stitch and, with the swivel feature, flips it over so you can tie off your threads in the back. At every stitching function to which I take this, my table becomes surrounded by women demanding WHERE did you FIND that?? And I say Home Depot, of course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for smithing/hobbies I love these vices. They are perfect for hobbies, and smithing. If you have ever tried to do something with a dremal that you wish you had a third hand, If you have ever been doing some fine filing and wish you had a third hand, or done something that even though it only takes two hands, you just wish it would be a better more stable grip, then this is what you need. I use this for a lot of projects. Engraving, fine tuning, fine filing, drilling, etc. Anything and everything that I need a third hand for, and or need a better more stable hand. I enjoy that it comes with rubber covers over the clamp itself, so it doesn't scratch metals, woods, etc as easily. The suction cup holds on a flat surface like glue, however any kind of bumpy surface, it won't hold. It has to have a flush suction hold. I recommend this for any small-medium sized sub procjets, and or on a work bench (with a flat surface.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Task "Go-Anywhere" Mini Vise This little gem of a vise has been just what I was looking for to performing small task holding jobs. It is built very well and holds to all flat surfaces very solidly. I really like the variable swivel movement of the jaw\anvil assembly to facilitate clamping of odd shaped pieces. For hobby, small projects and even gun smith work, this Bessey vise is a nice addition to my shop task!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for detailed work This little vise came ready-to-use and seems to be made of quality materials. I've had other products from this manufacturer and liked them very much, and this little vise is no different. I already have a bench vise, but it's a big heavy one for holding pipe, lumber, and other heavy materials, and even with wood on the jaws its still too much for smaller more detailed crafts. This little vise is perfect for more delicate work, but strong enough to keep ahold, though the swivel limits you to not very much weight, but that's a minor issue. I happen to have a table where I can use the vacuum base, but keep that in mind in case you need to fabricate a metal plate if you don't have a surface that the vacuum will work with. All in all a great addition for any detail work. I could see jewelry makers using this constantly.
