Wilton bullet vise

Postby oaktree » Fri Jul 14, 2017 8:30 pm

Sort of related to the house because I'll use it when making things for the house. A great craigslist find...a Wilton 500s bullet machinist's vise...my first acquisition for my future workshop in the pole barn!

Quite excited!

Nice find; a beautiful design. It looks to be in excellent condition, too. It rotates? Cool!
