    Bought this on Sunday

    And spent a couple of days cleaning, repairing and painting it. Now installed.

    Had to make a new end cap for it, does this look about right?

    It's a good upgrade from my old vice.

    Your safety tag is missing from your fire extinguisher.



    Great job on the vice.

    What is the name of the green paint?

    End cap looks good. The original had a through hole that acted as a rear support for the vice screw.

    I made a recess in the cap to do that. Seems to work ok.
