jeep4x4greg Posted August 31, 2007 Share Posted August 31, 2007 I've been working on freeing up my leg vise. i have it moving nice and wide.....but still cant get the main pivot bolt out...been pounding on it...applying heat.....PB blaster.....darn bolt wont budge! thats problem number 1....any other suggestions would be great.....if all else fails i'll grind the head and visible thread (i did get the nut off) off the vise and try hitting it out with a big punch and hammer. second... Can i Re-Bend the leaf spring of the vise? its been sitting so long that the spring only touches the moving half of the vise in the fully closed position. also, i'm not sure how to actually remove the spring...seems the support of the vise that also holds the spring has no obvious way to be removed....unless i start unbending metal that holds it on....which i'm a little reluctant to do suggestions pleeeeeeeeze thanks!
