Had to cut into the base to mount my old Wilton vice. Here is some info. I found on the web about this vise
In 1959 Wilton invented what they called the Wilton Universal Turret Vise, which is in essence a Patternmakers vise. It had two jaws that swiveled into place on the turret to allow the user to hold large items for woodworking, or with a flip metal working or even pipe clamping jaws could b called into action. The patent was finally granted in 1961, but by then the vise had already been on the market a year. I suppose that’s what the term “Patent Pending” is all about.
I have replacement peaces glued up to replace the old one
also replace the steel jaws with wood
If you can find one of these, buy it. It is a great vice. It can be swiveled 360 so the jaw can clamp at any angle.
What vice do have?????
