            A:  You don't have to mount it with bolts because it has a built in clamp but if you want to, there are 2 holes on the side of the base of the vice for more secure set up.Hope I answered your question. set up.

            Q:will this hold tubing or pipe?
            by|Aug 9, 2018
            5 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  will handle both.... just use a light touch on the tubing... 2 voices would work better...one on each end of the cutting area. p.s. I have 4 :)

            by|Aug 11, 2018

              A:  yes

              by|Oct 14, 2020

                A:  It is holding my 3/4" pipe while I cut it with a Rigid pipe cutter. You do have to put it in the rounded pipe section below the top area for it to work well and it does have to be clamped pretty tightly if you are cutting and you may have to take a little less of a turn than you might with a heavier vice, but if just turning between 1/8-1/4 twist before rotating it's holding it well. I believe it is taking about 4-5 mins per cut, so about an extra minute per cut, but it's very convenient since it doesn't have to be mounted.

                by|Dec 14, 2018

                  A:  Yes it will

                  by|Aug 16, 2018

                    A:  Yes

                      I picked this up from the store about 45 minutes ago. As soon as I tightened the bottom clamp enough to get any tension at all, it snapped right off. Since when are vises made of super cheap pot metal!?! horrible product! Do not waste your money!

                        Broke after light use
                        Quite simple to use, even simpler to break. This lasted a couple months for me, and I used it three times to saw small stainless tubes.

                              This is a very fragile item. I broke mine on the first try while trying to set it up to cut a pvc pipe. Maybe for not heavy duty jobs or light craftsmanship.

                                Excellent small table vise. I only wish the clamp throat were a little deeper when holding onto the table. Also I wish it had some gripping teeth in the jaws. They are slick. Otherwise, very happy with the size and strength.

                                PORTABLE Vise with no Vices and Vice Versa!
                                If you're looking for a third hand this portable vise is nice to have around. I keep it in my truck and when needed I clamp it down almost anywhere. Mostly used on sawhorses scattered at various job sites. I also put a few screws in the holes on the vise for added stability. Yes, the face plates do leave a textured impression in wood and other softer materials. Just be sure to protect those items before cranking down. I didn't give it 5 stars yet, since it's new and I can't speak for it's durability/longevity.

                                A great little helper when you need a third hand.
                                I had bought this clamp as i loved the idea that after my work i could put it away in the tool box. The clamp is built well and the vise sure does its job well. I had used this to steady a 10 lb motorcycle muffler on an L bracket while drilling holes into the baffle, even with the force of a hammer drill the vise held tight. Had also used it for wrapping the headers with the heat shield. I great product at a great price that is small and convenient to carry around or store after use.

                                Clamp On Vise
                                This vise serves my needs quite well. It's just a small, portable tool that I keep in my truck and use regularly. I am very pleased with it. I even use it in my apartment for small wood working projects! It's a welcome accessory to my portable Ryobi Drill and Circular Saw. I will probably go back and buy the two (2) bigger sizes as well when I move into my house.

                                Just what I needed
                                For longer time I was thinking about buying one. I don’t need any heavy duty tool. Most of the time I needed tool, which would serve as my third hand, just to hold something. This size works for me perfect. It’s lightweight, no problem to carry it where I want to use it. It’s simple to use, easy to clip to almost everything sturdy and strong. My garage door is very close to the street and I don’t like anybody passing by to watch what I am doing. So I took my new wise behind the house, clipped it to my garden table and here we go. I am very happy with this tool because it very well serves my needs.
