Just picked up a Wilton Shop King 3 1/2" vice.

I still need/want a ginormous vice, but I love the style of this model.

If you want to learn more about it, there are Vise Gurus all over The Garage Journal forums. Several threads are devoted to history and restorations. I found out a lot about my old Parker. No such thing as having too many vises!!

A lot of my searches ended up there. I have to look through everything on that forum.

I'm looking for date code info right now to see how old it it.

I took it apart today and cleaned and lubed it up. It came out very nice.

I just want one more huge one for working on control arms.

I have my eye on a few.

At what age is a tool or machine considered "vintage"? TIA
