      This is a functional drill press vise, and probably as good as you are going to get at this price point. It is good for securing small work that you can't clamp directly to the drill press table. The way you use this is to clamp your workpiece into the vice, then slide the vice around on the drill press table until your hole location is lined up with the bit. The castings are a bit rough, and the chop wobbles a bit as I turn the lead screw through it's full travel. But the vise does hold the work securely once it's tightened down, and the base is flat, or at least flat enough that it doesn't rock or wobble on the drill press table as you move it around to position your workpiece. Another reviewer points out that the lead screw is stiff to turn. I found this as well. Apparently the manufacturer sprayed or dipped the entire, assembled vise, including the lead screw, in clear coat. Once I turned the lead screw through it's length a couple of times, which I did by clamping the whole vise into my big bench vise and then chucking the end of the tommy bar into my cordless drill, the clearcoat scraped off the lead screw and it was much easier to turn. I gave the lead screw a light coat of grease while I was at it and now it turns nice enough. If you are doing machine shop and make your measurements with a set of dial calipers to the nearest 0.001, probably you'll want to spend quite a lot more on a good crosshead vise. But if the accuracy of a tape measure and a center punch is close enough for the work you do, this vise is probably good enough.
