    Yeah, I have the PanaVise suction base and vise attachment (381 set up). I'd looked at the 315 holder but some of the amazon reviews seemed questionable so I was a bit reserved.

    It's good though?

    I've had very good luck with it. In fairness i never tried comparable pieces but also i never felt the need:idea:

    Fair enough. I'll order one and see how it works out.

    I hope it works out for you. I can't see how it wouldn't

    I've been seeing these for sale lately. For the limited amount of time I would need/use them I can't justify the expense,and like everything from Hakko,the Omnivise isn't cheap,although they do seem to be well made. I use the one in the second picture,at a mere 20 buck:)

    Arrived on schedule. Looks like it should work just fine.

    I use the Panavise 315 and it does the job, but if I were doing volume, I'd opt for a rotisserie type circuit board holder. I'd also like to have it mountable in a ball base.

    For work other than assembly of multiple PCBs, I have a strong preference for this style of jeweler's vise:

    Jaws made of insulative material are available. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any economical source at this time.
