The pin and swivel jaw are free. Like most Prentiss vises, the jaw is pretty stiff and requires a few hits with a mallet to get it moving. The swivel base handle is also very stiff (heavy duty spring). A beautiful example of a very cool vise.Please look at the pictures carefully to judge actual condition. Please ask any a questions you may have prior to purchasing. Please look at my other auctions, I have multiple machinist items and vises available.
