« Part 1: The small vise. Part 2 of Getting my vises cleaned up. series no next part

Here’s the small vise, all cleaned up. About 12 hours in the Evapo-Rust soak, and another rubdown with WD-40. I might paint it, or might not. I haven’t decided yet.

Since this is a metal jawed vise, it definitely needs some face blocks added. When I install it on my bench-to-be, I’ll cut a recess for the bench side plate, and then add a face block over….. maybe part of a full skirt face on the side of the bench. I’m not real clear on this bit yet.

The vise side plate I’ll fit with a thin face block, over which I’ll be able to slide auxiliary jigs for different clamping jobs.
