I ordered a vice from eBay, had a terrible experience because it had not arrived even after three weeks.
Anyway, it was an 8″ vice that opened to 8″ also. After purchasing that I found another vice on Amazon which is also 8″ wide but opens to about 6″. It is almost the same price and it weighs 10kg as compared to the other one weighing about 4kg which can only be good when talking about vices.
The only thing putting me off getting the heavier one is that it opens less far. I’ve not had a vice before so I don’t really know how much I need. The wooden jaws would consume some of the space also.
What distance do your vices open to? Do you think 6″ is big enough for most tasks?
