Nice vice. Is the customer going to make new jaws also ? Many of the old vices we see have jaws with enough enough meat on the top & ends to allow milling or grinding out the damage for a fresh looking a restoration; it would certainly add to the appeal of using it and bump up the value when selling.
A Vono, brilliant !
I like Vono's as erm you can probably tell. Any chance of any more pics ?
Looking forward to see how your 84 turns out. I have another 84 that needs a bit of a spruce up but not sure I want to prep and then paint that one too.A quick question:
I now have beeswax granules, turps, linseed oil, tung oil etc. What would you recommend for a machine wax please? I’ve decided my Record 84 will be naked, unlike the wonderful example above...
both you and the diesel have used green - my copy of this vice (E&K) is 'nude' but does have some traces of green underneath which I thought was just an overpaint but may they were originally green? that's 3 of these straight away - maybe they're not as rare as I thought or did they just gravitate to our 'club'
and the Vono -- I have a swivel in good nick - bought from right next to the old Vono works - but one size smaller - No 3 - however it is quick release - there was also a 3C (compact?) - same width jaws but no QR and lighter/smaller (still pretty solid) - the Record 2 of many years faithful service has to go and be replaced by the Vono swivel base plus a Vono swivel jaw woodworking on the bench in the garden greenhouse - when the seedling season quietens I hope to sneak this past my wife but I think I'll have to 'fess up but somehow make it look like we're gaining bench space
nice vices, folks - what's next, looking forward
