Just got my pin vise and I'm very pleased with it. Beware, when you open the little bag with the bits in it be very careful because some bits are so thin that you might lose a couple before you get to use them. I wish the seller would have sent the bits in a resealable bag. You might want to be ready with one before you open it. That said, I think this little set is great. I drilled a couple of holes with different sized bits into different density samples of wood and they preformed well. As long as you have a reasonable expectation for what they can do you should be very satisfied with them. Happy drilling folks.
Got this pin vise in and it's not bad for the price. It's a little small, like it's meant for a child's hand small, but it does its job well! Other than my index finger being longer than the pin vise itself, I have no complaints. The quality seems very good, and I'm sure I won't need to replace it for a while. The bits went through my project clean with no snags or issues. All around, a great pin vise.
Item is perfect for Warhammer. Wasn't sure which one to buy because of the reviews but this one held up to the mark. Grips the bits tightly, I don't know where they get the bits from but I needed little to no pressure to drill out some plastic on Warhammer models. I can't attest to sturdiness yet, but I would take note that it's a tool for fine detail work.
This pin vise is all metal. The handle being aluminum and the jaws, of course, steel. Works well with the jaws closing evenly down to nothing. This thing will hold a straight pin. Jaws lock up and drills will not turn in chuck. Only had it a week or so but have used it quite a few times.
I haven't used all the bits yet (and probably won't), but so far it's pretty much perfect for what I need, which is repairing and modifying action figures. The bits will easily go through toy-grade plastic, and can even grind away metal screws if you have a stripped screw to remove and a bit of patience. The holes it drills are nice and clean. (If you're drilling into a smooth surface, try scratching/chiseling a little dent into the surface to keep the drill steady when you start a new hole.) Attaching or removing a bit is very easy, and they stay attached well. It's comfortable to handle. It does not feel flimsy or cheaply built (though I will update if anything breaks or fails). My only problem is a lack of a dedicated storage/carrying case; some of the included bits are TINY and easy to lose if you're not careful. Get a little case or something to store them in. Overall, I would definitely recommend this.
