Here's a restoration of a Wilton Baby Vise on a bullet base:
I have one of those 2" Wilton bullet vises on the Powerarm Junior Wilton tilt /swivel base. It's so darn cute I never use it but rather just leave it sit on the window sill to look at!
Ok, that is adorable. lol
Yeah. I have one without the nice swivel you have.
It was given to me by a good friend who owned a job shop..
They have a pretty deep throat.
Not as nice as my everyday vise though. Not really a useful vise IMO but it has sentimental value for me...
I also have one of the pana vises but it doesnt get to play in the garage. Electronics bench in the house ONLY.. Its too soft for garage work..
Along the same lines, my father gave me these as a birthday present about 30 years ago. The mini anvil is really a promotional item I think.

I've got a little 1# anvil like that I use as ballast to get my shipping scale to read light items. It's not well behaved under a pound, so if I bump it up it does much better. Since it's chinese, I have a feeling it'd crack in half if I actually tried beating on it. It's also probably not even good for a dolly due to being made of lord only knows what pot metal. But it's cute and does the task I bought it for.
Someone has been selling castings for a vise very similar to the mini-wilton at NAMES for the past few years. It lacks the Wilton name but otherwise is a very close copy. It has tempted me a couple of times. Just the vise, no power arm.
CRS has caused me to forget the vendor, maybe someone else can help.
JRouche thanks for posting the great pics of that little vise, very nice.
Re: JC HANNUMS post about the castings,, There is somebody who posts here, not sure who it is now, who in a few shop pics had built a scale model of a Wilton vise, that was very nice.
Maybe someone will remember who this is?
(Re: can't remember,,, old age is slowly creeping up on many of us here!!)

Jaw width is only 1 1/8" so maybe not. Pretty cute model of Wilton, I think. Regards, Earl
