Restoring a Torco Vise

DIY Posted by BenEspen 2 months, 2 weeks ago

I don't post my own stuff in the Mint, but the Parlor seemed like a different place. Three years ago, I restored a bench vise my father gave me. Yesterday, I finally wrote it up and posted some pictures. Three kids later apparently means three years later too.

Check it out!

    This is a great writeup. You could certainly post to the Mint for things like this in the future.

    My dad has an antique vice that belonged to my grandpa that would be a perfect candidate for this kind of restoration.

    I was hoping you would have used the electrolysis method just to see that in action. BUT, I guess your concern for family safety was warranted... :)
