A man needs vises. Let's see 'em!

Here is a Littco #112 before and after some work.

I have a 4" Wilton that spent 37 years on an aircraft carrier. No pics handy though.

It is funny that you start this post now. I was trying to work on a trap this past weekend and my junker China vise was not working. I looked at new ones and it seemed like anything that appeared to be good was crazy $$ and even then they had some bad reviews. I went on e-bay and was overwhelmed with all the options but ended up buying a Wilton. Not a beast like MGGC has but I figured it will work. It came up as Buy It Now and was cheaper than all the ones I saw with bids so it is on the way too me. It is a tilt model instead of swivel but I figure that should me okay. What do you guys think for $42.50 shipped to me?

Love vises, use them even when i would'nt have to. Lets just say i "have my share". smile

The ones with exposed threads i bugger up so i make sure the treads are protected. I work with metal so that's a weak area in them for for me.

Nice restore job tho!

Don't remember the name on mine, but it's some kind of plumbers/rigger vise. Head swivels 360 along with the base. one side has regular jaws, the other for round stock.

Very nice job, oleboot.
oleboot, I just gave nephew Littco #112 (as pictured). He bought his first house and it's work bench needed a vice.
When weather warms, he will return vice to me for a 'make over', 'restore job'.

I use several vices. But own more (like hippie, I have my share)

I know when most folks talk Vice, they think the steel jaw kind. Here's one of my favorites-

Columbian Carpenter's Vice




Another...
Wilton Carpenter's Vice

Wilton 1644 is what I use. It has been in the family since the '60s. I'm sure it will outlast me.
