Best in Class
I have used this BESSEY vise for about seven years now. I take bundles of wire from 16 to 30 gauge and twist them into trees. The BESSEY vise has held several hundred pounds of wire over this time span with out a hiccup! It far exceeds the competition in build quality, ease of use, ergonomics, infinite adjustability and design. Do not hesitate to pick one of these up from the Home Depot. I just ordered another one just for back up, my original BESSEY shows no signs of slowing down. Highly recommended! Jim Beghtol

    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.

    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.

    A mobile vice worth investigating.
    Exactly what I expected without any surprises. Meets the need for anyone who needs a moveable vise for use with small parts.
