Thanks! To be honest after seeing it im half temped to do the anvil itself too, would be give an excuse to clean up the edges a little while im there. Any idea if this marking could be something from the manufacture? Its a different letter set but its not the initials of the previous two owners, noticed it this morning... Along with the area of rust i missed =|

That is an exceptionally nice vise. Wow.

Outstanding find and respectful restoration. That's a vise that would never leave my shop once it had entered.
