Anyone uses a vise like this:
http://www.panavise.com/nf/vises/vises_cbholders.html

How does it perform? My current cheapo second hand
just don cut it. Rusting and easily topples over.

Not exactly those, but I use the 350 combo
<http://www.panavise.com/nf/vises/vises_combo.html>. I like it; works well
for me.

FWIW, I still use the el cheapo second hand, for holding wires, components
etc. :)

The Panavise products are nice but expensive. I don't have experience with
this particular one but I don't care for the situation of standing the board
that high above the bench. I prefer to rotate the clamping device down
towards the bench top so that the lower edge of the circuit board is on the
bench surface. That makes for a solid work piece AND somewhere to rest my
hands so that my fingers can be steady. Sometimes I use a wood block to
elevate my palms or a brick! When I went to a head supported magnifier I
also raised the work bench. I use a hot iron and lots of pressure on the
circuit board so I can make solder joints without over heating the board or
the components.

I have one... somewhere in a box.  It's the same jaws, but I have a larger
square base for better support.  But still it's not very sturdy and makes
soldering more difficult.... even if it's bolted to the table.  I would have
to arrange it so the PCB is close to horizontal, then stick a book or
something else under it for support.  And then too it was higher than I
would've liked it to be.

For thru-hole components, it was more difficult as I would have to keep
removing the PCB to get to the other side to place components, then flip over
for soldering.  SMD's didn't have that problem.

Nowadays though, since I'm doing mostly SMD's, I just place the board flat on
the table and place a pair of pliers, roll of solder, or something heavy on a
far end of the board, and it stays in place quite well.

Cheers,
-Neil.

I have used one for about 20 years and love it.  When you set it up
right You can have the solder side of the board to ward you and easily
pivot so that you can see the component side

All,

I agree with this opinion for the most part.   However, with the Panavise
products, there is enough travel available to tilt the board down and rest
the edge of the board on the table, so that's not a problem.  They are
somewhat expensive, but they are good quality, and they last a long time.
I use both varieties mentioned in this discussion, and both work well.
You won't go wrong by buying these units.  We like them very much here,
and they get used every day, several times a day.

                         
                                                Regards,


                                                  Jim
