First thing to do is strip this little beauty down to its component parts. The bolts out of the jaw that fell off.
One mounting hole is clear in the vise body and the other contains the other half of the sheared jaw bolt
That will need a little persuading out, later. The rotating base comes next
My rotating base seems superior to the one I found a picture of in that it is two piece allowing a full 360 degree rotation of the vise.
Next comes the separation of the sliding carriage from the main vise body. I just unscrewed it.
Although it was gummed up in there and needed a bit of persuading out. Above is the main vise body (rear), sliding carriage (front right) and threaded rear stop and retaining bolt (front left). The main thread is clean as are the mating surfaces of the sliding carriage
So I’ve decided to leave the thread in the carriage for now, The cotter pin retaining the thread and spring is likely to become fatigued if I remove it, best leave well alone. Next the rear stop and retaining bolt.
The stop looks OK but the bolt looks a bit knackered.
I tried re-cutting the thread ( an M10, 1.5 thread)
and clearing out the hole in the main body it bolts into
Sure enough it fits
but it’s loose and won’t tighten down properly. The bolt is shot but the casting hole seems OK (tried with another bolt). The bolt I removed from the loose jaw was also ‘waisted’
but another, new, bolt tried in the casting was secure
Well that the vise dis-assembled. Next stage is cleaning the parts.
Be seeing you.
