 Product Description

This Holland is now in beautiful shape, and would be a perfect size vise for a hobby bench.

The custom made serrated and smooth jaws are not original. When I started restoring this vise I saw the jaws were not in very good condition and were cast into the vise. I set the vise up in my CNC Milling machine and removed the old hard face jaws and created a ledge that would support the jaws during work.  I copied the Starrett design. 

Next, I focused on making a new handle,  and made the 1/2" handle with 1" round knob ends. The handles are made from 1144 Cold Formed CRS, which is practically unbend-able.  It's the best material for handles, in my opinion. I peened the knobs in place for a permanent installation, and added a set of rubber bumpers.

I built a 1-1/8 x .145 Aluminum Bronze washer to tighten up the backlash, it rests behind the handle support and rides against the Dynamic casting.  I machined the Dynamic inner casting so the collar could rotate on a better surface. This allowed me to make the washer thicker. Aluminum Bronze material is the best material for wear in my opinion, just does not wear out, never gauls steel but grease is always good.

I also adjusted the pin that holds the nut in place.  It used to be a 1/4 inch pin bent over the nut so I replaced it with a 1/4" pin that has a 3/8 sleeve over the pin and welded in place, this 3/8 sleeve was adjusted to just touch the nut for a better backlash.  Looks like 12 to 2 o'clock for a tight backlash, just the way I like them.

Painted with Rust-Oleum Hammered Deep Green.  This Holland 12-1/2 is now ready for years of solid service.

Shipping will be through USPS. I am estimating around $20 on this vise. Shipped using the Large Flat Rate Box.
