A vice that bolts or clamps to a workshop bench is a necessity for many repair jobs. Ideally, use a mechanic's (or engineer's) vice, which has close fitting jaws that are grooved for gripping pipes. Jaw openings generally vary from 75-150mm.

Jaw pads of softer material can be obtained; they prevent damage to components, but still hold them in a firm grip. Otherwise, pad the vice jaws with wood.

A vise (American) or vice (British) is a mechanical apparatus used to secure an object to allow work to be performed on it. Vises have two parallel jaws, one fixed and the other movable, threaded in and out by a screw and lever.
