    OK -- I hope i am at the correct place. I do collect stuff. right now I am researching a 3 headed vice. So far it appears to be an EMMERT brand and the only number on one of the castings is 103. it is a medium size vice. Obviously older than me.
    It has been butchered over the years. The 1st question is how to post a picture... still not into computers.... 2 Has anyone heard of EMMERT vices? 3. I did get it apart and it is functional BUT should I try to get it back to an original condition? i.e. remove the welded base and remove the rust?. Typically, I find what I call a "toy" - then clean it up - use it in the shop for a while and then sell it. Right now I want to know more about this odd vise.

    My grandfather liked to collect old vises, but I think he had to sell his entire collection.

    That's a nice one. I found one for a few bucks at a garage sale, I couldn't believe what it sold for. I've been hooked on vises ever since!!

    Why is a good vise so expensive nowadays? Can you please advise me a good company that produces a vise because I personally can't find good ones on my own. Vises in stores are either incredibly expensive, and it's not even clear why, or they just look substandard and inconvenient. I'm not looking for something incredibly special, just a suitable good vise for work. For work, I very often use a desktop vise, so it is important for me that the vise is strong and does not accidentally break. It is because of the fragility that I am afraid to buy a vise with a rotating head like here swindens.co.uk. Of course, high-quality and more expensive vises will probably serve for a long time, but it's still scary to buy at random.

    I like vises, older the better; as a blacksmith, weldor, and fabricator, it is more about using them than not though. Post vices are very cool, please don't cut the legs off!

    I've got several vises around here. I'll have to take some pix later. My favorite is a big post vise.

    Wilton makes good vises, not cheap, but tough and get the work done. Or just get something off HF and scrap it if it breaks. If you are not in the USA, i do not have any advice.

    I have considered offering this service as I am self employed and have several large trailers, dumps and the like. I wander if I could pick your brain about pricing and such?
