Product Description

The Starrett 162A pin vise holds workpieces up to 0.040" (1 mm) in diameter, and has a nickel-plated handle and binding nut to provide durability and wear-resistance. The tapered collet provides maximum clamping surface. The vise has a 1-11/16" handle length, 3/16" handle diameter, and 3" overall length (with chuck closed). The body diameter is narrower than the chuck to enable fast opening and closing of the chuck and faster rotation when working on small workpieces.

This little pin vise is for bits from 61 to 80. I tried a number 80 in it and the little vise holds it securely. I tried it with some of the larger numbered bits to see the maximum it will hold. It will actually hold a number 56. Of course Starrett makes 162B and 162C vises for larger sizes. The little vise is very well made, I assume made in the USA. The handle and chuck are knurled for easy handling and it's very well done - shows quality. It is small. It's about 3 inches long and the handle about 3/16" in diameter. You could put a microdrill in this pin vise and then put the pin vise in a regular drill chuck though this is not the intent and would very likely result in a broken bit. These little bits are really intended to be used in a pin vise or one of the little push drills made for this. For those who appreciate fine tools, it's a beautiful little device.

This is my first experience with a pin vise so I have nothing to compare it to, but this thing seems really high quality and highly precise. I just used it to hold the post of an earring setting while i cut notches into the prongs with a dremel tool. It held them securely and prevented them from spinning without causing any damage to the soft gold posts. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. I'm glad I spent the few extra bucks to get this one instead of a cheap generic which may have been of questionable quality.

Quality was pretty good. Jaws closed together nicely. Was actually too small for what I needed, so sent it back. Than found one WITH the drll bits on the Snap-on or Match truck. Liked it even better. Same price and came with the bits.

This is a high quality product. If your looking for something to grip small taps, drill bits, wire, etc. this is what you want. Its nickel plated, just a shade over three inches long, and has a knurled handle and rings for a sure grip. Just know it has maximum range of 1mm for this particular model.

Like all Starrett products this one does not disappoint. Accurate enough to use in a jig to sharpen <0.010" pivot drills, it is worth every dime. It holds better than the generics too.

Great product! Works well for gripping wire to twist for wire style jewelry making. I use it several times a week and it consistently holds and grips the wire perfect every time.

I find this pin vise indespensable for my model making- it's light years beyond most of the imported crap found elsewhere
