Antifreeze, for pete's sake! Now there's another new idea. And a crock pot would mean relatively low heat. I don't know where to get a crock pot that big but one of them turkey cookers would probably be about right. I wonder how long a propane tank would run on low?
Thanks, Frank.

Thanks, Frank.

I bet a 20lb propane take would run a small coleman camping stove on low for a long time.

Cutter, Antifreeze??!! With that big turkey cooker romping along you ought to at least check with Madam and see if she has any Mulligan stew recipes that might sorta/kinda work instead. Don't forget the bay leaf.

For the quantity a turkey cooker would hold, I'd suggest at least 5 bay leaves - cheaper at the HFS. I always get Mulligan confused with Mulligatawney. One takes apple.

Hey - nice save, Wyoming! I was just thinking of telling you two to go do lunch, go shopping or move it on down to the Martha Stewart thread but don't be talking that Food Channel stuff here in the Vise thread.

Cutter, Just joking with you Cutter. The idea of the turkey cooker sounds like it might have a good chance of working. Heck of a lot easier than trying to strong-arm those jaws apart. The idea also sounds a heck of a lot less volatile than some of the other recommendations you've had on the previous iterations of this thread.

lol, Ain't that the truth? I'm sitting here daydreaming about having time to drop by the scrap yard tomorrow to see if they might have short stick of big I-beam I could use to try to fab up a better launcher.
But in my dream the other night, that old Wilton jacked apart just as slick as a greased hawg through a headlock. Heck, the tube wasn't even very rusty past the first inch or so. Oh yeah, that diesel dip had done a great job - in my dream.
But back here in the present, I'm kinda liking Frank's turkey cookin' with anti-freeze idea.

Cutter, Start out with Frank turkey cooker idea of bringing the antifreeze/vise to a good roiling boil and than decant them into a black 5 gallon bucket with clinch lid and set the whole shebang out in that Texas sun for a good couple of weeks. The day heat/night cool down cycles should work wonders.

Cutter, are the jaws closed on your vise? If not it would be easier to get it moving in the closed direction. Once it moves the battle is almost over.

How about a small dab of semtex...
