Hello,
 
Does anyone have this set of 4 articles in electronic form as I would like to keep a record of the information as I am busy restoring one of these vise.
 
Restoration of Leg Vises - By James R. Melchor and Peter M. Ross. It was a 4 part article published in Anvil mag July 2001 - October 2001. This is part 1.
 
Please these articles are very informative, and will be of great aid.
 
Thanks

I am a bit disappointed that the link takes you to a site that charges for many articles that are here on IFI .

Agreed, hence my frustration at the limitation of access to the information and my request for help.
