      @e9999 Another explanation would be that it was made that way. Being hollow, it could have shrunk during the cooling of the metal. To your point, that may be the more likely cause.

      Reason #6 Why I LOVE Columbian vises!!! Found this old workhorse for cheap enough. Columbian 506 that has been beat on for years. There is a 3/16” depression in the face of the dynamic but it is not cracked or broken at all! The ductile iron...

      @Dunbar Very clean old 106! Reed went to the 4 hole design in the mid 20s so yours is easily over a 100 years old! A quality 6" vise is all 99% of people will ever need. A "lifetime" tool you can really be proud of! @Kofoed Athols are...

      This is a handy little resource. Vise spreadsheet! Lots of good info here.

      Yes, but that one still isn't complete. It needs a set of foot pedals. There's a video on youtube of a working version. Imagine trying to use the one in your picture. You'd need someone to crank the screw while you held something in the jaws...

      That Studebaker vise is a hack job. It was originally a hydraulic vise that someone reworked with a screw. A complete Studebaker vise is pretty rare and they fetch pretty good money.

      @MrMikeyG That stencil machine is AMAZING!!! You really found a gem there. The key to remember is you can't save them all (at once). Focus is fun!

      I mean, come on, who would paint a beauty like that...? Oil finish, or clear lacquer or... dare I say it... some blueing ....!

      @bhsdriller Most of the rotating vises are Asian imports (SawyerTool Works being the outlier) That being said, they are useful tools just not "investment grade" I'd buy one very local for 35-40 that looked right. @RUSH55 That Parker turned out...

      Nothing to be ashamed of there @colby1979. Quite a lineup actually. Welcome to the thread and thanks for posting!

      Cleaned up the Record. Said the heck with it and just turned the yoke down on a bench grinder for now. A couple comparison pics for fun.

      @e9999 Yes! Reed started that with their R series vises in the late 40s. carried on with the C series later. It's a handy modification.

      Wow! That one has been put through the ringer. I’ve seen a lot of broken records (lol) almost as many as broken Prentisses.

      Yeah, not sure I have it in me to leave the whole thing painted.

      @TomH LOVE that! Yes, looks just like it. I don't think that little gem needs a thing done to it. Looks just right!

      @TomH I have a conversation going with a guy selling a swivel jaw Columbian 3 1/2" jaws. You were fight to snag this one though. These are very rare to find "babied" like yours is. Stunning piece! @RUSH55 That light duty Columbian is going to...

      @e9999 These older vises are pretty “dense” as the steel is almost ingot like with little open space. Here is a reference for how big this one is.

      I LOVE mine! @flagstaff does great work. Fit is perfect! The plastic on on my driver side was just a nub with both ears broken and my passenger was some home fab replacement. These are great additions and should last several lifetimes (buy...
