 Product Description

York Vises are built in Czechoslovakia, Hugh W. Vogl an Czech immigrant liked the design so much that he created a company in the USA and used the design to build the Wilton Vises. Here is a write up on the Wilton Site  After restoring all five sizes I have found the York's have similar looks but different actions. York use's two hard pins spread apart in the Static Jaw Support instead of a key and a channel broached in the Static like Wilton does. York does is different but has a deeper channel cut in the Dynamic and two pins pressed into the Static. Works well. The threaded nut is stamped steel then threaded, it is then drilled in place and uses a single metric size pin to hold in place. The screw does not go past the pins which makes it easier to take apart but shortens the max opening. The Spindle has a radial groove cut and uses the same size pin to locate the spindle handle end instead of an horseshoe washer like Wilton uses. You can see it in the front views. The backlash is minimal. 12 to 2 o'clock is what this vise has for jaw movement.

The York vises have poorly designed swivel bases.   The centers of their swivel bases are open so there is no room for a center pin or shoulder bolt.  I went ahead and machined the center casting to smooth it out and added a center plug to allow the swivel base to rotate much more smoothly. 

I am happy how it came out and have added a video of the action on the 125mm, look HERE.

I also re-machined the swivel slots where the carriage bolt rested. After reworking the grooves I made custom lock threaded lock downs nuts.  Check out the pictures.

York also used nuts on the five I restored. The swivel clamps I made are an option you could purchase when ordering the vise.  I have seen a picture of what their swivel lock downs looked like and copied their design.

The jaws are new and have straight serrations.  I built them out of A2 Tool Steel and heat treated them to 54/56 Rockwell.  They are as good or even better then the originals, and will last a long time.

The handle was replaced and a new one made from Cold Formed CRS 1144.  This stuff is tuff, hard to bend a 1/4" bar let alone a 5/8 bar that is used on this vise. I added bumpers since everyone likes them.

Painted with Rust-Oleum Self Etching Primer and Satin Poppy Red.  The Vinyl sticker were made in Canada.

The vise looks great but don't let that fool you, it is ready to work and any person who uses it would be impressed with it's grip and easy of opening.

Shipping will be through UPS.

The shipping price is estimated at $100 and is NOT included in the price and can be changed if you can get a better price shipping this vise, shipping to a business is the cheapest I have seen. Be sure to contact me before purchasing so we can discuss your rate. My Guesstimate on box size is 16 x 12 x 12 x 75lbs.
