Hello UKW
First post. I saw this vice and thought it was interesting, and they are, so I bought it. I've looked at others but most are smaller. This
is the 6" version and quite un-molested. Its in bits already. The plan is to re-make the rear jaw pivot, install fresh guide bars,
make a new front jaw and a new nut, probably something tough like ali bronze. Keep yer posted. Then general TLC all over to paint.
A couple of Q's
Can anyone decipher all the text on the front, for later detailing.
Would this have had a rear screw cover, some did but there is no evidence of one being there or trashed off.
I'm guessing black is the colour.

I think yours is later - the front jaw has a vee on it, mine doesn't. The pin the rear jaw spins on looks bigger as well so I reckon you have the improved version!

If this helps, your vice may be younger than you think.

Yes interesting. I think that particular one in the description is near but not my exact model but the function explained is good. I searched JE wilson but didn't find a link.
Thanks
Paul
