    Looking through the UK ad's for vices it appears 95% of the sellers gave no idea of the worth....so a $2000 collection shouldn't cost more than about $200..

    Look at this beauty

    There was a bench mount one for sale at a steam show last year, I couldn't think of use for it realistically so I walked away. Also, it was a sodding long walk back to the car!

    I have a bench mount one and on the day I got it I was offered a full size one and couldn't fit it in the car.

    A fine purchase! I have a Paramo No4.

    Easy to take apart for cleaning etc. Open it up a bit & turn it upsde down. You'l see a split-pin going through the screw that holds a washer & spring in place. Pull the spilt pin & you'l be able to remove the screw from the slide by unscrewing it & then pulling it out.





    Jaws are east to remove as they are held by screws, not pins.

    Degrease everything & the either attack it with wirewheels or blasting cabinet. Mask off the non-painted bits, paint it, lube & reassemble.

    Sorted.

    I usually blast the castings & wirewheel the handle/screw.

    I would like a patternmakers vice like an Emmert or a Tucker but they are either in the US or just too expensive.
