- Time to buy a Vice
Never got round to buying one but realising I need one for all the odd jobs the wife has planned.
Looking at (the cheap) record 4inch and Draper, a thing else I should consider? Looked at 2nd hand on the bay but I’ll be out on Friday in Edinburgh area so I might as well get a new one somewherePosted 2 years ago
Lidl had some kocking about last week for not much moneyPosted 2 years ago
Not sure if they are any good or big enough but noticed one for sale in Lidl a few week ago
Edit – beaten too it.Posted 2 years ago
I’ve got one of these…
If it’s big enough for what you need.. it’s a much higher quality vice than the price tag suggests.. And much nicer than the one my dad got from Lidl a few years back..Posted 2 years ago
Have a look on eBay, search for Record vices, it’s surprising what comes up. I’ve got a lovely big Record in good condition apart from the paint for £50.Posted 2 years ago
Needs to be fairly local, really too heavy to post… 😉
eBay or gumtree, as above look for Record. There was a thread on here about themPosted 2 years ago
I bought a 6″ Stanley bench vice. Well made and lasts well.
About £50 online…Posted 2 years ago

They don’t mek’ ‘um like they used to…
Get on gumtree and buy an old one. Record are a name to look for, as are Woden and Paramo. They cost very little, even for big ones.Posted 2 years ago
As above Gumtree should yield results.
I got a Record No.3 in lovely condition for £10 – admittedly that was a real bargain! But you should be able to get something similar for £20-30.
They’re too heavy to post, so people will probably be willing to haggle if you can collect ASAP.Posted 2 years ago
If you’re in Edinburgh I might be able to help you out, not sure what sizes I have but definitely have a larger version kicking about.Posted 2 years ago
I’ve got a Record No.1 mechanics vice if you’re interested then give me a shout. Work in Edinburgh so can meet you somewhere.Posted 2 years ago
