Re: Reed 204 r

It has a spilt ring that you need to back out with a drift. It is used to adjust backlash. There is a set screw on side too

Re: Craftsman 5198 vise restore

The easiest way to get the badge off is to take a Dremel with cut off wheel and cut a slot in the drive rivets that hold it in place. Then simply back out the rivet with slotted screwdriver. Piece of...

Re: The VISES of Garage Journal

Rock island, date stamped on top of beam near the stationary base. My guess is late 40's as mine is 1946. By the way, great price assuming no damage.

Re: The VISES of Garage Journal

Ok, I think we are getting closer. I also have a Rock Island Craftsman with a 1946 date. Someone here probably knows what year the heritage logo first came to be.

Great score, check the top of the slide near the static jaw, it should be date stamped.

Re: Show us Your Vintage Bench Grinders!!!!

I removed drive rivets from my craftsman name plate by using a dremel w/ a cutoff wheel to make a slot, which can then be removed with a screwdriver. Learned that one from someone else here at GJ.

Re: 8" alert!

Rear portion of beam is broken off, no way that much money for a broken vise IMHO.

Re: New vise handle from ritzblitz. Installed with photos.

Wow, it looks like that vise is staying as it is on a bench instead of a stump. Looks great, good work by all.

Re: The VISES of Garage Journal

It is made by Columbian. I would guess it was made in the 60's or later, it's hard to date Columbians since their overall style never really changed much. Wilton still makes them but only the high...

You would be hard pressed to find better quality vise then that. Those vises have backlash adjustments, oil ports, and are tough as nails. IMHO, much better then overpriced Wilton's. 50 bucks was a...

Craftsman vises seem to be Rock Island, then Reed followed by Columbian. The 519x series are between Reed and Columbian era. The vise has the stout weight and oiling ports, which seem Reed like. The...
