        Very cool! Wonder why they would paint it

        • I'd have been turning back too. I've picked up and rehabed a couple vintage vises at decent prices from flea markets but haven't ever seen one on the side of the road.

            • I found this old Tonka truck in the trash while working at a customers. Think it's vintage 60's but not sure. I imagine some little kid had years of fun with this and was passed down until it found its way into the trash.

I ended up purchasing the S model. This LC8 motor flat out rips. The torque is simply jaw dropping. My dealer led test ride took us around various streets in and around the city, but at one point we were up to almost 80 and the beast was only getting started. I'll bring my 1290 SA-S home Tuesday as this one was not prepped yet.

                Funny side note. 13 years ago I bought a new 06 Ford F150 and the following spring I bought my 07 R1. The cycle repeats itself I guess. I'm one lucky guy though as my wife is the one who gave me the green light for this. Got a smoking deal too. Zero percent financing for 48 months and the OTD price was under the MSRP.

                More pics when I get to bring it home on Tuesday.

                I could go on and on about the motor and the fun . . .

                You'll find out.

                  4'' jaw. I thought about removing them- however, the pins wouldn't budge. Not interested in screwing it up. milled down the high spots, and trued up all the moving parts- made them square to each other.

                  Overall weight 67 lbs. per the Charles Parker sales flyer from 1919. Found that from someone who went to the archives and digitized pretty much every vise made that was worth digitizing. Quite fascinating and time consuming. Damn expensive too. About $26.00 for this model back in 1919..

                    I'm torn. True be told, I've worked on this for the past week- all of 20+ hours removing paint, "the hard way" Rodney Dangerfield.. and look at it as intended, raw and a workhorse. However, I'll never put it to a test, so I do have some black enamel paint (gloss) which replaces the flat black I found as the base coat below the 6 other spray paint jobs lurking on top. I'm just not sure what to do.

                    These are semi valuable, to someone. $150-$750 after some research. I'm sure some old dude would want a piece of history to complete his shop and wouldn't mind paying some coin for a rock solid hunk of metal to attach to his Norwegian workbench.

                    I may keep it as is, for now. But a purdy black coat of paint with red/white lettering would make quite the show piece..

                      • You did a really nice job on that. I'd be torn too on painting it. Looks so nice raw.

                        • I swear I saw the same vise yesterday at the flea market. Wish I'd taken a photo as I forget the price they were asking.

                          • After entirely too much effort searching I finally found a 40" deck being sold by someone who wasn't a moron and/or didn't sell it out from under me. I realize it's about the ugliest contraption imaginable but boy howdy does it fill my need where a borrowed tractor with an 8' deck can't reach.

                              I need to see some video of that entire machine and some of it working.

                                That looks similar to one my dad had back in the 60s.
