Just bought this and it's in excellent condition, just stripped it ready for cleaning and rebuilding
That’s a proper vice you’ve got there! I’m sure it’ll serve you well for many years to come.
I love reassembling these things, they’re identical all the way down to the tiniest No00.
I picked up one of those for free at the same time.
Have two No 6 one either side of my bench bang in line.
Love my little 00,
Is the " 00" noticeably smaller than the size " 0 " Record vice ?
I've no idea what size the 0 is.
Here's the size of the 00
Thanks for the photos. I restored this Number 0 Record vice awhile back. For comparison the dimensions are.......
Jaws = 2 1/2" wide.
Jaw opening = 2 9/16"
Length closed = 8 1/4"
Height = 4"
After replying to this thread I, somehow wandered on to the "bay" and accidentally bought a Record Auto Vice; resistance was futile.
Well after eventually getting my very rusted and siezed baby record stripped, I have found one jaw missing and three sheared jaw screws, now need to get it into some sort of rust removal solution... Salt and Lemon Juice possibly ? any ideas gratefully received.
White vinegar, or Citric acid, or Phos.
If you fancy a work out, a wire brush
Isn't that the same as salt and lemon juice, I know doubleboost used it to de rust some very rusty colletts.
I’ve been restoring a whole load of Record vices with the patented nut for a guy. So far I’ve done No00, 0, 1, 2 (in progress), 3 and 6. I didn’t actually care too much for these vices when I started but they’ve grown on me, so much so that when he had two No4s I said we could do a part payment thing and I’ll take one. Not exactly sure where it’s going to live as I have a lovely Woden vice on my bench already but... I am weak for old iron!
Nice one! I also have a #6 in good condition that I picked up on eBay for around £35 a few years ago, perfect size for my needs.
Also refreshing to see some 'ickle vices too so here's my wee contribution - a wee Record one that clamps on a desk or bench. Vintage, courtesy of my very late Father-in-law. Has been very useful at times, pencil for scale.
Have one of those in the van. Handy for chopping bolts down on site
Yeah, I know the feeling, especially since I recently acquired an early No. 74 Auto Vice. I love the patina and honest minimal wear, which gives it a sense of character like a well used vintage guitar; doubt I'll do more than I've already done, which has been just to clean and grease it. After seeing one of the smaller No. 80 clamp on bench vice's mentioned here, I had a read up on them, and took the plunge buying a relatively older one; so am waiting for the Postman.
Does anyone know where I might find a pair of jaw plates for my Size 0 vice ? Forgot to measure them before I left the shed
The jaws on my Record No. 0 vice are 64mm wide, 12mm high and 6mm thick.
The screw mounting holes are 30mm apart, or 15mm from either side of the centre of the jaw for a more accurate description.
