Replacing Panhard rod bushes

Oh bugger - there goes another one of my vices :angry:

The first bush went in easy peasy and the second one 3/4 of the way and then a loud bang as the outside part of the vice flew off and belted me on the ankle. It was a Record N05 as well, so no cheapo rubbish, looks like I'll be out shopping for a new one on Monday :( . Anyone got any recommendations on indestructible vices?

:D Ahh there is a god - sooo glad to see somebody else breaking a vice on a seemingly little task - now on my third vice, each one getting progressively larger and hopefully harder to break!!!!! Famous last words i know!!

A few weeks ago I was in my fastener suppliers. There was a guy in working overalls getting some 3/4 screwed rod. Me beiny nosey I asked what it was for.

"Fitting spring eye bushes"

So they still use the same method as I do.

I must admit the vise is easier.

I fear that even well known English makes such as Draper and Record are all now made in China...........................

Maybe the same outfit that put the 'lead' into Mattel? :angry:

I bought a record 36 of Eblag for £80. RRP is around £800!!!! :o

Apparently they are the only vices used on oil rigs as considered indestructible. Don't buy a steel one as, although strong, they really have very little holding power compared to a cast vice.

Now thats a good piece of kit, but any idea of price?

Damned clever these Germans, like the forged steel, especially for the magnetic jaw clamps

Record 36 is a good solid vice but the Heuer has some very novel accesories.

The largest ones go around 190 pounds on ebay.de (search: "brockhaus heuer")

I think they have a lifetime guarantee and although not cheap, in my opinion the best vice you can get
