Good morning folks, I have a Dremel Workstation, or drill stand as I call it, and would like to get a small machine vice (is that the correct name?) to go with it. I have seen a few smallish ones but they are usually too big to bolt to the base. Can anyone out there offer any workable suggestions please? Also, is the material the vice is made from of make any relevance at this small size, i.e. is cast aluminium any good? ( I had a screw-on table top vice made of cast aluminium which snapped in half the first time I used it.)
I feel the need for this vice as I am about to drill a 1mm hole in a model yacht's mast to locate the boom vang and with my shaky hands it could end up being big enough to pass the boom through without some sort of support!!

Hi Chris, do you have a picture of the base it is to be fixed to, with approximate sizes, as I may have what you need in my workshop. You can PM me if you want as I am not too far from you.
Cheers Colin.

Thanks Colin. I attach a photo of the base and the dimensions are shown on the base.

I'll have a look in the workshop tomorrow and let you know what I have that would be suitable, probably one of the small record machine vices.
Cheers Colin.

Hi, I have the same drill stand, I used a proxxon drill stand vice with a mod to suit the base to slide up down and side to side.

I have the same problem but at present I'm using a pair of vice (Mole) grips clamped to my lap tray by G -Clamp on the stand base. Bit unwieldy but works 👍👍

Thanks for the responses chaps. I was looking at the Proxxon one but saw another make which I have bought and will try out in the next few days.
