It was changed from the clamp-on the bench style, to an easier to use and more versatile swivel base that was inspired by Chas Parker. A great deal of work was performed to make this transformation. The base is a three piece shoe brake design. It includes custom made sets of Serrated and Smooth hard jaws (not shown) Heat Treated to 54/56 R/C are custom built and not original.Tightened up by remaking the collar shim thicker than original and out of bronze. This allowed the vise to be a little tighter and have less backlash. A block was added to the spindle nut pin to keep the nut from moving forward and backwards.
The wrench ties into a wedge block to spread the two shoes to lock in on the base. The base is scaled down from Parker 204 swivel base. Width at widest point: 3.Top of jaws to square slider: 1-3/8.
