I thought you were asking about a particular kind. I was going to post that vid. lol
I have a 30year old sears craftsman Vise....
over 40K lbs of clamping force?!? Shit!!
I've had this 6" Parker vise for over 30 years. It used to be on the back of my welding rig. I've had six foot pipes on the handle before and have never bent or bowed it. It measures 12" tall and 24" long.
This old 8” Red Seal vise has taken everything I’ve ever given to it. We’ve had it ever since I can remember.
My milton vise is as bad as it gets!! It was mine at work for 24 years and it's older than that. When they closed the plant they let me have it. It cost about 1500 dollars new. It's all bearings and opens over 6 inches. It weighs about 70 pounds.
25 year old snap on with Wilton jaws
Very nice!! I have the same brass jaw covers. One like that can be handed down to the next generation, then the next, forever!!
If you have a Vise Vice, check out The Garage Journal forums! Several monumental threads have been going for years and will show you everything you need to know, hook you up with parts and learn the history of your model. I have an old Parker on my bench and three others in my collection. One I HAD to have (and still have never used lol) is an antique Phoenix jewelers vise. I need to get pics of them. No such thing as too many vises ... or vices.
I want...please send
It's too pretty to use! But I admire their efforts for sure. Polishing is a lot of work.

If the shape don't give it away....
-- This is a 3-1/2" Sears vice. I've had it for years, and it has taken care of all of My needs. --
Back in the late '70s, starting to acquire tools, at a livestock and tool auction I bid on and won a new 4" Allied Vise made in Taiwan. I never needed to hammer on it as I have what I call an anvil to do that with. Lol, It was fine for everything needed under 3-3/4" as it wouldn't open to 4" without dropping the screw. A couple years ago I sprung for this 1755 Tradesman 5-1/2" that came with a BFH (I have yet to use) for around 360 shipped. Felt like a good deal at the time ....... I cleaned up/painted the old Allied, gave it to my son.
That guy works pretty fast in those videos, I think it'd be quicker to blast all those parts first. Maybe that takes the fun out of it?
