Wilton website07 300x200 Restoration 1981 3" 9300 Machinist Vise

Strip the layers of old paint, maybe replace the jaws or repair the loose play in the lead screw horseshoe slot, and find an American-made diamond in the rough that is ready for many more years of reliable service.

Buy 3" Wilton Jaws  here.

 

The BEFORE photo above shows an example of a 3" Machinist vise purchased very reasonably from a school auction.  Aircraft stripper made easy work of 3-5 layers of grey paint.  Once stripped down, it is easy to see that the vise is in very good shape.

 

Deals can be found on the older Wilton workhorses on E-bay and at various auctions.  For instance, school districts are often a source of lightly used shop equipment.  Craigslist is another source to consider, but prices are usually not as good.
