In Detail

The Universal Vice swivels through 360° in both the vertical and horizontal positions; tightening the jaws locks the entire vice in place. An ingenious adjustable cam arrangement beneath the jaws ensures the vice locks rock solid when gripping an item. Slightly backing off on the handle means you can rotate the vice for better access to your work without having to remove it from the jaws or change it from vertical to horizontal. The jaws are 89mm wide, 57mm deep and open to a maximum of 127mm. Holes in the jaws allow you to mount custom-made wooden jaws. The base has three fixing holes on 120mm centres. The cast iron construction is carefully machined and the total weight 7.5kg.

Possibly agreeing with previous negatives about the tommy bar

Just received a replacement as the tommy bar on number one jammed. I had thought it was because the hole was mis-machined but now I see the comment from earlier this year. Let's see how this one goes. I am using the vice to grip wood carvings (usually glued to a temporary wooden "carrier block", so not gripping the piece itself). The idea of just slackening the vice to rotate is great but if the cam arrangement does need tightening hard enough to achieve a stable grip that then leads to bending the tommy bar it's going to be a grade A pain in the pinny. Watch this space for updates.

Great tool - BUT

The first one I had, worked fine in the normal vertical configuration, but when turned to the horizontal, it was impossible to lock in place. Of course, one call to Axminster, and they collected it and sent me another, with no problem. The second one works a lot better, but as the previous review reports, you may need to tighten it more than you would like, to lock it firmly in position. So far, this hasn’t been an issue for me, and I’m very pleased with what is a very versatile tool.

What happened to my previous review?

I have one of these and wrote a review.

However, they mustn't have liked it because it never appeared, so I guess this won't either.

I said it was basically a decent vice for the money, but it wasn't as it appeared in all their images.

Regards - John
