Bench vise


CATERPILLAR

Recommended Posts

Great buy.  I know some wiltons are highly sought after based on the kind of iron.  I have two different wilton vises but neither are high dollar ones. Some of those old bullet vises command big money.

 

Lets see the after pictures :)

Looks like an older 745 Mechanics vise. It's imported, but it's one of the nicer imported vises and typically runs around $200 new. You can still get parts for it too.

 

Old vises are are a lot of fun. I've redone several, and I have 2 more awaiting restoration as we speak. Can't go wrong with a $20 Wilton. I'd have snatched it up in a heartbeat ?

If it has cast pipe jaws it's considered a Utility Vise, though there's very little difference between the two. 

 

My daily user is a 1755 Tradesman and I love it. 

 

Great deal on a 1755 and a bash hammer is you got the cash. You'll probably never get on cheaper. It's basically cyber Monday cheap with a free bash. Sweet looking special edition black too!

If I had any earthly need whatsoever for another vise, I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat
