VINTAGE WILTON 3 BULLET VISE SWIVEL BASE BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED 1946, 77 YRS. American made vise, used, built 77 years ago. Wilton stamped 7-46 on keyway, that puts the manufacture year at 1946, around WWII. Moves smoothly, jaws come together.
It has been completely restored. The vise was completely disassembled, painted surfaces were cleaned, sandblasted, primed and given several coats of hammered paint.All other metal surfaces were cleaned, wire brushed and polished. Grease was added to the parts needing it and the vise was reassembled. The adjusting mechanism operates smoothly, the swivel base moves easily and freely. Years old, it is in used condition, it has dents and scratches. There are two pieces of the jaw body broken off, take a look at the las two pictures. However functionality has not been afected by this.
Also one jaw is textured the other jaw is smooth. It would look much better if the jaws are replaced to be the same. Was restored however the vise is still used and its shows some wear in different areas.
Please look at all the pictures for condition. Please ask questions if not sure about condition.
