 Product Description

This Wilton 450S was picked up from a High School Wood Shop auction.  It was not painted and had minor scratches and dings.  It also did not have a swivel base so I purchased a brand new one and added my custom built swivel lock downs with above average carriage bolts purchased from McMaster Carr.

I then added a new 3/4 dia. x 10" handle with custom made rubber bumpers. The original handle was OK but I did not like the loose feel of it so I bored the 11/16 handle hole to 3/4 + .010 for a nice feel. Added custom made knobs and peened them in place for a permanent install.

I made a over size Horseshoe Washer for a better fit and less backlash. I left the color of the Heat Treating because it looked pretty neat.

I then installed a custom made end cap that is much heavier then the stamped out ones from Wilton.

Surface ground the Anvil and added new Jaws with a real nice heat treated pattern from my inventory. These jaws are 54/56 Rockwell with hand cut serrations not like the ones you buy now that are Sintered ( Powdered) Metal and made from a Metal Injection Mold.

As for the Date Stamp on the keyway, it is either 6 or 9.  No idea of what year it was made but would guess in the 70's.

As for painting, I decided to let the new owner paint it. I prepped the casting and it is ready for painting. I will add several badges for the casting undercut.

Shipping will be through UPS.

The shipping price is estimated at $100 and included into the price and can be changed if you can get a better price shipping this vise to a business. Be sure to contact me before purchasing so we can discuss your rate.
