I spent my first day of “social distancing” in the garage working on the new vise. I had to cut it away from the RR track. Then I had to cut away the old bracket (because it had been welded into a large glob of metal). They had welded a coil spring around the screw mechanism and that took some time to finally cut away but now I’m down to just the parts. I took pics of all the markings I could find. Next up, I might degrease and re-grease the screw. Maybe clean up the jaws a little. I need to forge a spring and a new bracket. Then I’ll work on figuring out a base.
I have a Shaw & justice dead stroke power hammer In need of rebuilding. However I can not find much information on it. I want to know if these were good machines and worth fixing or if it would be a waist of time and money? Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
