About this deal

I am wondering if it would be frowned upon to have an old 52 1/2 painted in a colour other than blue? Would it be a form of blasphemy to have it done in your colour of choice?

its 3 shillings 6 pennies. If 36 shillings is correct it would make this a very expensive peace of equipment for the year. Thanks Paul hope to hear from you soon

Hi, I just got hold of a Record 52 1/2. I fitted it to my bench and have now noticed that the front jaw is loose and wobbles a little, it’s not too bad, but it is a little irritating when holding small pieces together as they tend to skew in the vice. Is there something i can do or was I sold a lemon? Ity would be great if someone could give me an idea of if its fixable? I have an old 52 1/2 Record Vice fitted to a workbench that belonged to my wife’s aunt (who was a cabinet maker). On the front it has a number 664709. Would this be a pattern number, or what? Why I am inquiring is that we would be interested to have an idea of the date of the vice as we know she made the workbench presumably with the vice at the beginning of her apprenticeship. Can you help please? As far as can be known these Eclipse vises are still good vises. Anyone else know anything to help Ed? There's a ~5mm diameter pin holding the nut in place, I tapped it out using a big nail. Once the nut is free it can be slid out of the body. The whole slide should come free and the nut can be unwound from the screw. Bootleg or not, the vise appears to be decently made – much better than what is sold new nowadays in home-improvement stores. Turns out I didn’t know how much I needed (wanted) a woodworking vise until I installed this one on the bench.

The vice was in the house (well, garage) when I bought it. I recently had a good tidy up and re-arrange which included re-locating the bench and vice. Submerge in the acid bath for a further 12-24 hours then remove, scrub/power wash and also submerge in clean water for a few mins (do this while scrubbing to save time) Just a thought. A picture is worth a thousand words. Is there a process to attach a photo next time I send a request for information. Still like to know if anyone has a supply of parts for record vises. Similar to a used auto parts supplier.

Presently, on my personal benches, I have three Woden vises on the two benches at my home workshop and at the Penrhyn Castle workshop, have two personal benches there, I have two Record vises and a Woden vise. Is that a vertical parallel or along the top edge of the jaws? The jaws are manufactured with toe in so that when pressure is applied the parallelism is established. I recently aquired a Lion vice. Still building bench so not used it yet, but it looks good. design obviously copied from record et al. If it lasts as long again, as it has so face, then it will outlast me. I’m not sure if anyone is interested in ways to clean up rusty old vices but I’ve done quite a few so I hope the following helps someone: Record IRWIN Mechanics Vices are the most popular and widely used general purpose vice for light to medium-duty applications.
