    Default What I bought this week

    I like to have some safe jaws on my vice, but after ten years mine were getting a bit ragged. The plastic ones damage easily and rubber ones are far too soft, but these fibre jaws are firm and long lasting.

    They fix to the vice by adapting the lugs with a mallet and donít come adrift in use. Forget about those magnetic ones which end up on the floor, or the beaten up strips of aluminium favoured for cheapness.

    If you also use your vice to hold stakes and mandrels, you would need to adapt them so that they can be lifted off for this.

    Faithfull tools have an offer at present, so they are a good price too and come in a choice of eight lengths. They will grip metal without marking, to hold it, flatten it or straighten it. Dennis.
