Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed execution This would be a very useful tool, except for the completely unreliable vacuum attachment. On my polyurethane lacquered wooden work bench (which is flat and smooth) the vice holds tight initially, then sooner-or-later comes unstuck without warning, with potentially disastrous consequences. On a plate glass work surface, it seems to work much better, but that is hardly a practical solution. Disappointing, really.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't live up to expectations I bought this because I needed a portable vice to hold different objects for soldering. The vice is ok but the suction base doesn't work very well at all. Disappointing.

What's the best way to make the base stick tight to a table? 

Asked by: Gareth
If table is flat it should have no issues, as its a suction cup.
