Acquired a free vise yesterday. Some minor cleaning required.

This came with the vice. Anyone know what it is? I had to be told. It will make a good wall hanger.

I believe we have a resident vise cleaning consultant on staff should you have any questions on specific concerns or tactics .

Throw it away. Only an idiot would waste his time on a rusty old vise.

I got it from a friend that is a retired electrician. He said it is a piece of industrial electrical conduit from bygone days.
