there is just something about older vises

 

The guy got it from his Grandfather, he was planning on making it a lamp. Glad he sold it to me, I've already disassembled it, drilled out the broken screws in the jaw and some rusted parts are soaking in Evapo-Rust. Right now I'm looking for a replacement hardened steel jaw or will make some aluminum jaws for it. Also going to strip it and repaint it.

 

I'm thinking teal (like a 50s Chevy or a bright red), what do you guys think?

Teal would be pretty neat for the vise. I'd check eBay or Owen.org for replacement jaws.
