I got this mini vice a couple of years ago with a parts collection.
Found it very useful for soldering connectors or holding the ballcup when building trackrods.
Now I want to buy another one for the race track toolbox. But I have no idea which brand sells that mini vice.
Any ideas?

The parts on the top of the picture with the chassis are from an Kyosho Optima (front side, side rail, rear motor plate)
I buy kits to build and ru(i)n them :-)

They're said be be made by a racer local to me in the late 80's. Made them in his garage or at his work and sold them at the track. I don't remember the name I was given.

That is quite interesting as it has now ended up in England so has travelled pretty far. Thanks for the information. Are you interested in it?

I already have a couple of them. I find it interesting, knowing of their origin, where I see them. But rc10's have been shipped international for many years, so they can pop up anywhere.
