I am building a new work bench and installing a Wilton 161137-10 wood working vise.
I bought the vise from someone who obtained several of the same model from a government workshop.
It has L shaped jaws, to clamp stock vertically or horizontally. The jaws are 7 inches by 7 inches, by 3 inches deep in both the vertical and horizontal positions. The jaws open to 9 inches. The guide bars and screw are also arranged in a L shaped pattern.
It is designed to be mounted on a 2 1/8 inch thick bench.
I weighs about 28 pounds (it was just shipped to me)
Can anyone tell me about this vise?
