Can anyone identify this vise?


It's old. It's pretty beaten up. I bought it impulsively on Ebay. I can't read any of the markings to give me a clue as to who made it. I'm probably going to need jaws, if it makes sense to use it.

Any ideas?

I see why you bought that --Nice design--Looks like something Raymond Loewy might have designed.

There is an old tool forum--that might help--sorry the name of the site escapes me.

Nice find--Mike--

I brought it home yesterday. I can't find any manufacturing marks on it, other than a V86 on one jaw and a V87 on the other.

That isn't to say there never were marks on it -- but as you can see, the thing's led a pretty hard life. I want to find a base for it so it can rotate, then I want to clean it up and use it.





Anybody recognize it at all? It appears to be pretty well put together, but I'm no vise expert.

You know, I found that site with a Google search, and for some reason I got the message that my email address was banned. No explanation for that that I can think of. I sent the administrator a message about it -- we'll see if I hear back.

Thanks, though.

Life time ban at a tool forum--Just how bad is that??


There is one old tool site that is very popular--I just can't recall the name.--That is not the one I was thinking of.
