Elderly chap gets up to vice in his shed

Postby yeadon_m » Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:56 am

Hah! been restoring my wife's grandfather's old Record Auto-vice. Beautifully made piece. Nearly done. I won't be refinishing it in its original red, as I prefer silver. Note the stamping and casting. How things have changed since he trained as an engineer after the war.
Cheers,
Mike
ps: what have you got thats gripping in your shed?

Its one like this - only mine was silver...until I stripped the paint and found a very adherent manly pink underneath.
The swivel function is very nice, as is the tiny anvil on the back.

This post has got me restoring my vice. It was in my house when I moved in, and was covered in white gloss paint. I have been chipping off the white paint trying to leave the original paint. I was going to strip and repaint but seems a shame to loose the patina.

Russian made in 1976 by the looks of it :)
