No breaks on the brake shoes. Opens and closes very smoothly. The handle has a few small bends in it. The lock down nut is missing the ring.
Overall good condition with some light colored spots. The vise had some paint on it so the metal rusted differently. I cleaned, lubed and put on a coat of boiled linseed oil or BLO.
