5" post vise - Identification tips


Recommended Posts

I picked up a 5" post vise a couple of weeks ago and started wire brushing and waxing it. So far I have only found a couple of numbers (Sorry, I didn't get a picture of them yet).

Are there other distinguishing features that give a clue to it's origin or age?

This is my first post vise, if it is, in fact, a Colombian, is that a good one?

When you say older, what are you thinking? I don’t know the history of that company.

The parts all seem to be in excellent condition. The screw was coated in petrified grease, but shows no damage or much wear after cleaning. Same with the screw box.

Although  It looked like it was buried in a field when I got it, The whole thing is cleaning up rather nicely. :)
