Looking for vise washers

Good Morning Tate,

What do you mean it doesn't have any 'Washers'? Do you mean "Thrust Washers"? "Thrust Bearing"? Washers to use when bolting it to your Bench?

Washers and Dryers?  Not trying to be a jerk, you just need to be specific!! Is it painted Blue? It will be no good if it is painted Red, might have to send it to me!!!  LOL

There is usually only one washer on a post vise. Have a look at this 2001 article by James Melchior and Peter Ross in Anvil Magazine on repairing leg vises. It describes the different types of washers, forged and cast, and demonstrates how to make a forged one. As a newbie, you would probably need some help doing this level of forging but it is what blacksmiths do. 

Let us know how it progresses.
