I'd also read that older Reeds have solid iron castings, unlike newer Wilton bullets that are hollow. Has what appears to be a positive locking swivel base that wont slip, similar to Wilton vise. If you look inside the opening on the bottom of the base you can see gear teeth (see pic). This is a very nice all-original vise that would be perfect for full a restoration or to use as-is. This could be a real beauty with someone who has the right touch.
Please study all pics with the zoom feature as they're part of the description. The vise you see is the one you'll receive. Please ask any question you have before purchasing, I will be glad to help.
