I posted on it a few weeks ago. We got the vise for free because it was gonna be junked. The support under the non moving jaw was busted away, and the shop had put in some bolts under the jaw to support it. The threads then stripped out last summer when I was using it. I welded it up with Ni rod where it was busted out, and put some Jergens thread inserts in the stripped holes. It turned out really nice.
You guessed right, it is a Wilton. I got the Ni rod from my FIL before he retired from the foundry so that didn't cost me anything either. I'm doing it all at work after I'm clocked out, pretty much all on Fridays when I've got the most time.
Next week I'll make a program for the jaws and make up a few sets while I'm at it, and have them throw them in the oven when heat treating some similar material.
