I Forge Iron

An ATF and acetone mix is a very effective home made penetrant. As pnut said, soak it for a while, work at it a bit, lather rinse and repeat until it works free. Patience is the operative word here. Don't try to force things, and use the torch with caution.

Depends on how it was seized.

Today I could put it outside and it would get to an even 160F plus degrees that would loosen old grease.

If it was rust;  electrolysis, penetrating oil, kerosene, diesel

Does it have a rear cap that can be removed and access the back of the screw?

I have a lot of rusted adjustable wrenches now. I was thinking of buying a gallon of WD 40 and a dump it and them in an ammo can and set it where it will be in the sun part of the day and let it cycle.  Memo to self only open can when it is cold to the touch!

I would need a lot of WD40 or PB blaster to cover my Wilton C2 vise. Right now I just spray it down every 2 days. I got it pushed in enough that the key on th shaft was resessed in the body so it left me a tiny resivior to fill up.

Scrolling through the Unread Content page, this thread's "Vice seized" title caught my eye, and I thought, "The cops are seizing vises now?"

I guess that's why they have a Vise Squad.

Is Vice/Vise seizure covered by the USA's Constitution's 4th amendment?  Unreasonable search and seizure...

"Vise seized" ,I thought it was a medical emergency.

Maybe that's why so many old vises are marked "warranted".
