    Don't waste you money on the GW one it is perfetic to say the least, it doesn't stick down to anything even if you wet the base.

    Get yourself one of these

    You can always glue a bit of foam of styroboard to the jaws or even a bit of plastic to protect the mini's whilst they are in it. at 5.78

    Heres the site link http://www.sourcingmap.com/mini-clam...aign=ukfroogle

    Shop about for it and you may get it cheaper or without the postage cost

    G-clamp is a must! The GW sucker thing is a death trap, it doesn't actually stay on the table properly. A guy in the local store almost ended up impaling the guy next to him when the suction failed.

    Geez...and here I had the theme from Miami Vice running through my head coming into this thread...



    But as for a hobby vise, no sorry; haven't actually used one myself.
    To equate intelligence and wisdom with occupation is, at best, insulting.
