Product Description

The Starrett 166A pin vise holds workpieces up to 0.040" (1 mm) in diameter, and has an octagonal-shaped insulated handle that prevents the tool from rolling when set down and protects the user from shock. The tapered collet provides maximum clamping surface. The vise has a 1-25/32" handle length 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.

The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company, founded in 1880, is headquartered in Athol, MA.

This pin vise is small and comfortable for long task task. My hand don't cramp up using it for small projects and I have more control with it than the larger ones I've used in the passed. If you use it as a hand drill for small modeling projects or for hold a needle for stippling that piece of Ivory, this is the one to have.

Very good product. The saying goes you get what you pay for. I have a carburetor rebuilding company and over the years I purchased a lot of pin vise. I happen to need another unit so I went on Amazon and found this one. Very well made product. This one is the best made pin vise that I have ever purchased.

Much tinier than I expected, but I love Starrett's quality. This will work fine for me. I'm using it with a mini tap and die set for creating sterling silver "screws" for jewelry.

Hope this can lock down tight on the tiny bits I use...I have many pin vices and they all seem to lose their ability to clamp down tightly on the small bits..80,79,78 etc...

This seems like a well-made tool - what you would expect from Starrett. But the picture is a little misleading - you don't get 4 sizes as in the picture - you just get one. If you want the whole set you can order 166Z for the set.

I didn't really expect to get a set of 4, given the price, but still, 4 were pictured, so I was sort of hoping...
