Dead locked Pipe Vise restoration - Beautifully restored
Dead locked Pipe Vise restoration with custom part making on my lathe. This is one is really stucked dead locked but ends up beautifully restored and maybe better than new.
I do this restoration with no music this time to achieve the satisfying feeling that I know a lot of you like in my videos.
I bought this Pipe Vise in a local flea market here in Sweden. I don’t know how old it is. There is a sticker on it saying Peddinghouse – I think that Ridgid owns that brand. On the front of the vise it says PIONIER and on the top of the handle nut there is the number 2 – This might stand for fits 2” pipes?
The vise was really stuck in many parts when I start working on it. But WD40, fire and strong arms is king when it comes to loosen old rusty bolts and nuts.
I use sandblasting to remove all old paint and rust from all the parts. I have loaded the sandblaster with medium hard sand to achieve perfect results when sandblasting on cast iron.
I made two custom bolts and I polished them to mirror blank. They hold the main parts together. I also create a custom pin on my lathe to attach the hook on the main body of the vise. I use stainless steel screws to attach the hard metal jaws to the vise and brass screws to attach the moving metal jaw to the moving thread.
