I guess I won’t repaint this.

Latest bench vise saved…

The rust was really stubborn and getting it all off would have finished what little original paint was left.

I could repaint it but then I’d have a vise with chips, dents, drill holes, saw cuts and a brand new paint job. That just wouldn’t look right.

Anyway, it’s a Sears Craftsman vise that looks very similar to this vise by Reed Mfg co..

That’s because Reed was the original manufacturer.  I estimate the mfg time frame to be 1943 t0 1947.
