Needing a small vice for fiddly bits I bought this small one on ebay.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/252780581377?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=551781512848&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

And made this mounting to hold it to the bench and be easily removed all I needed was scrap chip board some screws 1- 4mm captive nut s/hand, 1- 4mm wing nut and 2" or 50mm of 4mm threaded rod.

I'll make soft jaws from polystyrene.

 



and around 40 minutes.

Damien.

Very neat, m'duck! This same vice can be found on E-Bay UK but every supplier seems to be in China. Lowest price is around £4.50 incl P&P.

A paddleducks member suggested drilling holes in the top of the jaws for metal rods  for clamping round  discs which I thought was a good idea.

Some versions already have these, along with the pegs.  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Miniature-Bench-Table-Vise-Hobby-Small-Jewelers-Mountable-Vice-Clamp-Repair-Tool-/292095294657?var=&hash=item44023c7cc1:m:mrt4fFquB4PoB0P-CN8Pcmw
Has to be worth a fiver, doesn't it?
