    Excellent video - and all the better for not having a musical soundtrack imposed over it.

    great, i find these video's very relaxing,that vice was worth the effort,very difficult to find good quality workshop tools at any price nowadays.i have finally started the restoration of my 1945 wolseley sheep sheering[yes SHEERING]stationary engine which hasnt run since the early 1970's. i have stripped and rebuilt the magneto,ground the valves in,just got to strip and rebuild the carburettor.then ready for trial run after which it will be stripped again for repaint.once i got into it i have greatly enjoyed working on it.i will post a little video of it running when i get that far,cheers greasemonkey..

    A level of skill and patience I don’t possess sadly. I think I would have kept the original teeth (is that what they would be called) though.

    Apparently they are called jaw faces or jaw pieces. The jaws are the main fixed and movable parts of the vice.

    For me it was very cool that the new replacement jaw pieces perfectly fitted such an old vice.

    I spent weeks restoring my Suffolk Punch Mower and it is now rusting away happily and mowing the lawn!
