Just trying to find some info about my recent addition to my shop. I have, im guessing a 5 in but it measures 5 1/2 in Iron city post vise. Just spent 5 hours today cleaning, lubing, and restoring it today. During the process i found it had iron city in a star on the leg along with on the solid screw box it had the number 3 pressed in it. Was hoping to learn any info i could about what that three means and whos the maker of this post vise. Thank you all for any info! Here are some before and after etc. Photos to help understand what im refering too. Thanks again for any info!
Good morning all, I am new to this forum and am really excited to get going on here. Seems to be a wealth of knowledge on this forum. I have done some searching by reading through quite a few pages of posts and can’t quite to seem to find an answer. I read another post where someone has a similar one to mine but seems to be a generic vise and another post where a gentleman has one exactly like mine but he does not know the maker either, so this may be a lost cause but figured I would try anyways. Yesterday I bought two vises from an estate sale outside of the Atlanta GA area, one is marked(Iron City) the other is not. Was wondering if anyone had any insight as to who the maker is. It weighs 68lbs, the jaws are 5 1/4” wide. The only marks seem to be 4 little divots on the mounting plate body under the screw box.
