Forge Steel Woodworking Vice 6" is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Acceptable quality vice Pros: This vice, at under 20 pounds, is well worth the value for a hobbiest or beginner woodworker. There are two support rods that provide right and left support adequately. Cons: There are many faults. Overall, the vice is not ideal for me, but will serve its purpose for now. The support rods work loose under strain, and constantly require retightening. The jaws, after use for around three months, do not meet up level or square, and to securely secure the work piece, it has to be shimmed with a wedge or piece of cardboard. The front jaw is constantly shaking and has never been stable. I soon hope to buy a metalworking vice and adapt it to woodworking, as replacing the current vice would be too much hassle, and too expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woodworking Vice Had to return the vice, rods where offset. Replacement provided with no issues at all. Very handy vice, great value for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Idle Vice...Idle Vice... ... Every morning it greets me (still in its box awaiting installation). But it certainly looks and feels like a solid piece of kit. Surprised there were no fittings or fitting instructions in the box, but I'm guessing everyones fitting details are different and there are certainly lots of (laborious) videos on You Tube showing how to install. In my case I'm going to countersink into my worktop installing from underneath, which is probably the only way what with the angled underside of the vice itself....And dont forget to add replacable wood plates to the inside vice saws, which will obviously reduce its opening dimensions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from COULD BE GOOD The 90 degree mounting faces are not square, the guide rods are loose and the clamp faces do not close evenly. Even when the guide rods are nipped up, the jaws don't close evenly because the guide rod threads have not been drilled square. I looked at 5 and picked the best of a bad bunch. If a bit of care had been taken in drilling and positioning the guide rods squarely, this vice would be getting full marks. Beware!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb value I bought this as I'm setting up a small workshop in my garage for a spot of D.I.Y. I've got a few projects in the pipeline. It is really good value and is spot on for what I need. I had it fitted to my bench complete with wooden jaws in under 30 mins, used it a few times and does what it says on the tin. At this price it's a no brainer, especially as I'm only doing a bit of diy really.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected at all. Overall I feel this was a pretty awful vice, mainly due to the play between the rods the vice runs along, this come undone and looser the more you use and it is annoying to be constantly tightening it up. The grip it gives as well is not up to the standard of better makes, Irwin for example. On another note the handle has threaded ends that have screw on caps, these work themselves loose when sanding or planing and then the rod falls from the vice, yet another inconvenience. All in all it isn't great and should be viewed as an absolute beginner level vice. But if you are wanting the good stuff I'd pay more and get your moneys worth with a much better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality & Value Very sturdy for the price and easy to fit. Added bonus that it extends so far (to 6"). Great value and quality. Would recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic but useful vice Good basic woodwork vice. Ideal for small projects. Pre-drilled holes come in handy for retro-fitting wood to the vice, to help avoid marking your work. Worthy tool for someone looking to buy a budget vice.
