    Just picked up a very honest Record 83 Quick release vice,
    An FB bargain at £40 I thought ☺️
    In progress pics will be posted as I get into it

    Is the green colour indicative of anything ?
    I quite like it and if it is original I’d replicate it

    So is that the same size as the No.3 but as a quick release?

    no the No.3 is larger (4” jaw I think) with a larger opening
    Once it’s back together I’ll post some side by side pics.
    There is an No.84 which I think is more like the No.3 capacity but QR

    so some comparison shots:

    so it’s a narrower jaw on the 83 but similar opening

    looking forward to getting in to it soon, just as soon as I get some other stuff done and out of the way.
    I managed to get some of the sawdust and grease that packed it, dug out too.
    As this’ll be a keeper for me, I fancy doing it a different colour to roundel blue too

    Nice thing I like that a lot, I like that green colour too, it does rather suit it.
