    If you can post a picture of the vise it would help. You may have to make your own, assuming you have a mill as well as the vise. I made a set of aluminium jaws a couple of years ago and still haven't used them. Mild steel would be accaptable, and you can give them a skim if they get damaged.

      Welcome TIA,
      Lost dog. One eye, 3 legs, responds to Lucky
      would be a better description without a picture.

        The jaw looks new, a pair would last the life of the vise unless used by a very ham fisted owner. A picture of the vise would be more useful.

            That looks just like my 6" Elephant ELV-150E, purchased from Enco probably 20 years ago.

                Nope, sorry. The 'height from the bottom' is roughly .900 on mine.

                  The vise is one of the relatively cheap Kurt clones, probably from Taiwan or China. I have a Chinese 5" version which I could afford, unlike the Kurt which is for the rich hobbyists and professional users.
                  I still think that as the jaws are undamaged, there is no need to worry about replacements, anypne with a mill could easily make a set, no bother.

When I hand this off and the guy wants soft jaws or something else I would like to be able to say, you have to get XYZ brand jaws to fit this. It’s not a Kurt style vise. I appreciate the responses so far, just hoping someone out there has the same one.
                    Man!?! You are a real humanitarian. Geezzz..

                      What do you think the person who you are passing the vise to is going to be doing with it, using it as a door stop?
