I picked up 2 old woodworker vises at a garage sale for $5. Now I want to see if I can actually use them. The casting has a small “GG” and “SF1” (no other markings, although I didn’t disassemble it yet).
I did not get the bench mount. I can create a suitable bench bracket out of wood reinforced with metal, but I am stuck on how to find a “nut” that I can weld to a metal plate [or ????].
The screw seems to be 1 inch in diameter, and the outside edge of the guide bars are 7″ apart. Suggestions?
