  • Victoria Vise info?

    I just bought this vise locally.
    English 4.5" vise, Victoria brand.
    It's much heavier than the 4" Palmgren on my Millrite, but it's a bit rough, especially the jaws. Movement is tight and smooth
    Any way to determine age?
    What do I need to do replace the jaws?

    Can't help you with age but I'd guess 60's-70's manufacture. I had a Victoria Dividing Head about 6 years ago, bigger model, well made ("fine piece of kit" was how one member here called it). Ran off table of a bigger horizontal. Traded it for a Gorton Pantograph

      That sounds about right. I'm going to strip the paint and refinish, and make some new jaws for it.

      Thanks all, for the info.

        Victoria Vice sounds like the screen name of some shady web-cam-services provider.

          I knew there was a reason I was drawn to this thing.
