"It was 75 years ago when Wilton designed the first Bullet Design machinist vise and created the groundwork of quality craftsmanship from which the Wilton brand would rise. We’ll be celebrating our 75th Anniversary all year long – stay tuned for details!"

Default Cutter's Vise

Nice work Cutter. Just finished reading the whole story and have to reiterate one's comment: you are an S.O.B. Congrats.

You know what, John?
I've been thinking about this ever since you posted your observation after slugging your way through this old thread. I think you must have set some kind of a new record.
I believe you're the only member who has ever used just his 7th post on this forum to call me a son of a bitch.
It usually has taken more interaction than that.

It is still pretty amazing.

And thank you for bumping the thread. I went out to the shop and gave it a fresh wipe-down just to take a picture.

It gets used weekly. I've got all the scrounged materials from Cutter's place to build a stand for it, but have not done it yet. It's more than heavy enough to stay in place for my needs most times. I keep the magnetic rubber jaws on it so as not to damage any of the guns I work on.

I originally ended up here while following a thread about an old track loader restoration maybe by LU47Dan? I read the Cutter vise thread later. Somewhere in the dictionary under Stubborn is Rod's picture and a link to the vise thread.

I found the Cutters Vice site online and commented, and Rod contacted me and asked me to join SFT
