I recently got a rusted together bench vise and was hoping that I could restore it to a somewhat usable condition. The threaded portion spins with a little enticement however I don't believe the jaws are moving. The "hole" that the rod goes into doesn't look stripped out but with the jaw rusted into the position it is it doesn't make sense that the screw can be turned unless something else has given up the ghost also the vise does not rotate and there is a chip of the body missing to the left of the logo. Is this worth trying to muck around with.
Hopefully will be starting to build a electrolysis tank large enough to fit this Reed 108 in tonight. Looking froward to getting all 300lbs of this vise cleaned up, painted and restored. Haven't done one this big yet. Should be fun to see how it turns out.
Here is a bench vise that I acquired awhile ago. No name is visible anywhere. The "U" ( slide/guide) is 1-1/2" round stock and 3-5/8" on center. The jaws are 5-1/2" wide - corners are in bad shape When full open the gap between the jaws is 7-1/2" This vise works very smoothly during the opening and closing and is very stout.
