It is a good hobby vise but it does not stick well to anything. I have tried just about every trick in the book and it will hold well for under two minutes. After that it has no suction at all. It works best on glass of dense "smooth" plastic. You just have to re-stick it every two minutes. I can't believe that I bought this thing. The base just keeps the vise from falling over due to gravity and serves no other purpose.

This a vey nice vise for light duty work such as working on small projects like watch repair, jewelry fabrication/repair, electronic fabrication/repair, model building, or small/fine woodworking projects. This is not a vise to use in a heavy maintenance garage type setting. The first time smacking it with a 32 ounce ball peen hammer and the vise would be nothing more than a broken paperweight. The effective jaw opening is 2.75" as advertised in the product description; however, if you use the included rubber jaw inserts, the effective opening drops to just slightly more than 2.5". I like the swivel/tilt feature of the vise. This helps with holding your project at an angle that is more easily accessed while working on it. The suction feature works best on non-porous flat surfaces. In my experience, lightly moistening the rubber cup surface will help keep the vise stable for a greater time period if needed. I like the fact that it easily detaches and is easily stored out the way when not in use. That's a big plus for me.

It does not stick to my bench. It is very lightly constructed , using hollow castings for most parts. Otherwise it seems fine for a light hobby vice. There are other clamp vices on Amazon that are at about the same price, that are far more sturdy. Unfortunately for me, the clamp vices won't fit my thick work bench. I hoped this vacuum base would be the answer, but I'm probably going to drill holes in the base and just screw it to the bench.

Soooo cheap, which is good...and bad. You really have to CAREFULLY set this thing up if you're going to be applying any sort of sideways pressure, or else the suction base pops open and the vice falls over. Use it on the smoothest surface you have, with a tiny layer of water applied around the bottom of the rubber to get a better seal. Even then, if you're going to be hammering on whatever you're gripping, it may still come undone, in which case you need to get a vice with a clamp system instead.

The jaws have a lot of play to them, so it's hard to get things aligned if you need any sort of precision. The tightening screw that draws the jaws together also gets loose pretty easily so you have to keep tightening it as you work.

I imagine for more "gentle" jobs this vice is great considering how cheap it is.

I am so glad I spent a little more than I wanted to on a vise. Spend a few dollars more and get this one so you will not be unhappy with a cheap vice and have to return it. This one is heavy, does not wobble when using and stays put on my workbench top. I also got super fast shipping. You can't go wrong with this vice.

This is the VERY BEST table vice I've ever had. It's 'ball-neck' moves the vice around as you like it, and the big rubber suction area effectively prevents movement. Well-made, good removable rubber grips are provided, and at 3", a large jaw, very useful. A quality device at 'old-fashioned price' ;-)))

Very nice little vise. Heavy enough to sit on the table without even locking it down.(the lock down device doesn't work very well) Nice for small projects and very portable. I have tried several vices so I'm very glad I found this one.
