    Has anyone at anytime come across the swivel kit for the Record 3X series? The catalogue shows they were sold, but I've never seen one - they must be huge!

    i dont think its seen much use, the jaws are great , no dimples etc from being hit with hammer either, all i did was clean it, strip it and wire brush the rust and re oil etc, very smooth to use

    One day I'll take some in daylight with a proper camera, but until then here are some more pictures of the Volvo No 3. It needs some unseizing doing.

    Never tried this myself but I am told diesel works wonders. So if it is seized (and they can seize SOLID!), dunk it in a bucket of diesel and forget about it until you're ready to restore it.

    Seen a fair few videos where the moving jaw required 10-20 tons of hydraulic pressure before they even begin to move.

    diesel is good also brake fluid but for speed plus gas takes some beating, apart from oxy/acet bottles of course.

    So in response to my other post saying I was due to take delivery of a vice - well, it's come and it's a little bit massive! So massive in fact that it doesn't fit my bench, so I will have to build a new one - 'what a shame' :laughing:

    [​IMG]

    The Record 53A had both the screw and nut cover, which differentiated it from the 53 (qr and nut cover) and the 53P (plain acme screw and nut cover). The thing is 10.5 inches wide and 25 inches long.

    Note I managed to find one with the old handle style, and that both decals are intact. I'm very happy!

    Nice acquisition ! Wow, opens to 25", that is monster. I have a 53E which opens to 15" that I got from a friend overseas, and I thought that was BIG.

    The actual grip is 'only' 19 inches. I have begun restoration and the solid steel sliders are coming up beautifully.
