This vise is ok. It does work but there is a little stiffness in the handle as you turn it at part of the rotation but it does up ok. I think it was possibly dropped or overtightened at some point? Handle has a slight bend in it. There is a tiny amount of rack in the jaws. If you want a super precise old Record etc, go and buy one but if you need a big old lump in shed/garage etc to serve occasional general holdy purpose and use as an anvil this will do just fine. No idea on its brand or history. My Dad gave it to me and he had it in his garage for years for the above purposes and I'd like this to get used but at some point it will go to the scrappy otherwise. It takes up too much space to keep it unused as I have a Record 74 now.
I'm in Herts. Google Hoddesdon for location. Collection only so don't even ask! :D

Cheers,
Chris

Just a little bump. I thought this might have gone tbh. Just in case I was too honest in the description, the vise works fine. The rack is virtually undetectable for general purposes and would be no issue for most uses.
Just in case I was putting anyone off what is a fair, if not high end bit of kit.
It's a donkey not a racehorse but you could still ride it to the pub for a pint.
So to speak.
Don't make me leave it outside for the local snappers!
Cheers
Chris

Frank if you can get someone to pick it I will hang on to it for 6 months. No worries. I want it to go to a user.
