@nufab4 have a look there.
666598 is the registered design number. Original paint was roundel blue, a quick google will find you some
Excellent. thanks for that. Another forum suggested the 36 was basically the 34 with larger jaw so 36 had 6 1/2 " jaw. Do you have any idea of ageband of these then? Thanks for all help. I seem to have been going round in circles.
Hello, and Welcome to the Forum !
Excellent thread. Thanks. I stripped it down and gave it a quick clean And grease. It has a few stamps of OEW. Which my father told me was for ‘outside engine works’ at the shipyard. It would appear to have a date if 7/43 and Lilles Hall embossed on the inside. I presume it’s the town in Telford?
If you look for the member CwazyWabbit on this forum he has a link at the bottom of his page to lots of vice catalogues
No bench vise but i made this contraption, it has offset wheels made of large discarded bearings, so when i tilt it i can move it, the vise is very old but i never managed to brake it !
Thankyou. Already found it friendly and helpful. Also just found this https://archive.org/details/RecordCatalogueNo141935/page/n12/mode/1up?q=36 which gave me specific details on the Record 36. Thought it might help others too - it's the Record tool's catalogue no 14
I like the “subject to liberal discount” bit. 49 shillings for a Record 23 seems to be about £175 today, never a cheap vice.
Thanks yeah it’s cool the plate is fine just a little surface rust
Lol thanks I have 3 offsets 2 quick release 3 swivels all cast steel and 1 8” & 1 8&1/2” vice. If that counts
It's a great starting lineup for a collection.
And so it was, booooodge . Managed to square the edges as well, biggest hole was 15mm x 10mm, misjudging depth to that level needs a badge of some sort...
Didn't paint any of it in the end torched the cast parts and oiled with boiled linseed, nicer than paint IMHO.
Prizes for the best paint job and optimistic price
Lordy -- look at that red paint, -almost looks like emulsion. However those 75s can go for a lot - I believe there was one (in good nick, with all bits etc) sold for nearly £400 last year
Certainly love mine, cost me £25 from a friend who does house clearance.
Whoever buys the one on eBay may have problems as it appears to have been disassembled and the spring not not pinned back. That spring is under a lot of compression and difficult to replace. I bound mine with string, replaced and pinned it then burnt off the string. Possibly not the best way of doing it, but couldn't see another way.
I might have a vice problem. I have 3, one big Record bolted to the workbench, one smallish on the welding bench and one big ish Fortis that I lug outside for mucky outside work. So I absolutely did not need another one.
So of course I bought another one.
This is a fair old size, marker for scale. Can not find anything about it on-line.
Yes you have a vice problem - welcome to the support group - there is no cure, but admitting it is the first step.
That Teneo Saro looks interesting - I don't know anything about it but have a vague memory of the name - Spanish?
Looks like a well made descendent of the Parkinsons Perfect Vise line.
Might?? Looks like someone's been hacksawing close in to the jaws?
