 Product Description

Here is a perfect sized vise for your workbench, not to big and not to small and having the option to hold pipes. This Wilton C1 (Combination Pipe Vise)  comes with new 4-1/2 jaws and a new set of Pipe jaws. On the pipe jaws I did not like the clip design so I added four custom made pins and pinned the pipe jaws in place, much easier to take apart and finding another clip if broken or lost is harder to find. 

I repositioned the groove in the spindle that the Horseshoe washer rides in, I like vises with minimal backlash and this guy has very little backlash. I am happy with the fix I did. I also installed a new custom made Horseshoe washer 2-5/8 x 3/16 made from A2 Tool Steel and precision ground flat. I redesigned the washer screw holes by imbedding them so nothing sticks out for injuring your fingers while spinning the handle.

I built a new end cap from solid steel so it is not easly dented like the thin stamped ones original from Wilton.


I also replaced the nut, not because it was stripped but because the two ears that keep it from spinning was missing, due to the pins slipping out. I added a set screw with the ends machined down to fit the 1/4 reamed hole, the original pins were pressed in and must have slipped out since the original owner staked the pin in place. I set the vise up in my milling machine and replaced the pin with a threaded insert. Look HERE for how I did it.


I replaced the handle with a better steel type, Cold Formed 1144 CRS is the perfect handle material, Wilton uses 11/16 (.687) bar stock, a size that I can not find in 1144 so I bored the spindle out to accept the common 3/4 Diameter size. I peened the custom made knobs in place for a permentant install then added a set of bumpers to save your fingers.


I surface ground the anvil so you can add your own scars, it was not bad and did not take much to clean up. I also removed some scars before painting but left most since it is part of the orah of this vise. I primed it with Rust-oleum Self Etching primer and painted it with Rust-oleum Verde Green paint. A very close match to the original paint. The new owner can add his own scars.


The $70 for shipping is an estimate only.
