Broken Deadlocked Vise - Perfect Restoration (I did it again)

פורסם בתאריך 21 אפר 2020
I bought this vise pretty much 1.5 years ago together with the other Gressel bench vise I already restored and made a video. I also payed $20 for this one. Since then it was laying aroung in my basement. I always knew that I'll restore this one as well, just because it's a Gressel and it will totally worth to safe it from the trash.
This one wasn't that rusty like the other one, but it was also completely deadlocked. The handle was beaten up and bent. The jaws, some screws and two pieces to hold the spindle were missing. The pin that secures the spindle from turning was broken. Because of all that the spindle fell out. This vise has two threads and two concentric bushings to keep the jaws in place. Talking to Gressel I found out that this method was only produced until 1960, so it's at least 60 years old now. It could be from 1943, as both parts had a „43“ stamped on them. As these original jaws are getting no longer produced, I decided to drill an extra hole between the threads to be able to use new jaws. Gressel was so nice to send me new flat jaws. All the bare surfaces were in really bad condition due to heavy use, that's why I decided to weld up material and clean all these surfaces on the milling machine. I replaced the handle with a new one, but I used the old rounded ends again which turned out great. I later secured the ends with Loctite when reassembling. I also made the two missing screws and the broken pin out of the old handle. I choose to paint the whole vise the same color as the movable jaws from the new Gressel vises are, cobalt blue (RAL5013). I think it turned out very well, the white lettering, the shiny bare spots and the black parts match very well.

I hope you like my work and the video.

  • So awesome to see this (different kind) of vice restoration. We, as viewers, get to compare your increase in skill and experience- though I consider you to be the top machinist/restorer on youtube during your first Gressel Video- and get "A NEW ONE!" at the same time (new video to watch that is)! I must also commend your use of every possible original part of this vice as you could, even if some were refurbished for different components of the vice. I wonder if this Vice, since we're thinking it's possible it was made in 1943 based on stamps if it would be considered a "Low-background steel" item- at which point it may be worth its weight in gold for most governments (too bad for them; it's a Gressel Vice and we got to see it restored!) To all the other viewers out there- Seriously consider becoming a Patreon Supporter for my mechanics; in the video it's hinted at "exclusive content" and let me tell you it is WORTH IT! 1) Don't feel bad about that ad blocker; you're supporting my mechanics directly, and 2) Extras; EXTRAS!

  • Best restos on ILaward !

  • use of puller to open jam vise was classic

  • Freaking beautiful

  • Everything is beautiful. One question remains - the expediency of the restoration. I mean, the cost of materials and the use of technology are significantly higher in price than the item being restored. Not economical!

  • Very excellent... 👌🏽

  • Great vid, again! One question: What is this Dremel you are using? Including the tip? Looks like a great replacement for a file!

  • What’s the parts cleaning machine you have?

  • You could say this is a gripping video 😃 Like the Cobalt blue colour: a job well done! Makes me wish I had a workshop to have one of these in but I'm no good at making things.

  • I once went into Home Depot and asked for penetration lubricant. Yeah, the lady I asked for help looked like she was about to call the cops on me.

  • I agree! Out of all of the numerous restoration videos I've seen, you are clearly and without a doubt the best! Tysytube is the 2nd best, and that's not a knock on his skills, it's a compliment because you have the bar set so high!👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽

    • Adoro seus vídeos de restauração, são melhores e bem mais minuciosos que os outros restauradores a começar as próprias ferramentas que vc usa são impecáveis, como sou chato com meus instrumentos de trabalho e com os trabalhos que faço também sempre gosto da perfeição, dou os parabéns pra você e seu programa, continuem assim !!!!

  • Ah I’ll just make a new one,😎

  • great mechanic and craftsman but, he makes way too many modifications to the pieces.

  • Perfect restoration..

  • Well done beautiful work

  • Warning!!! Hello, through a comment I made on your channel I am receiving messages with sexual content. delete my comment or resolve this situation, thank you !!

    • Мастер с большой буквы!!! Золотые руки у этого человека. Браво!!! Видео завораживает, не замечаешь как проходит время при просмотре шедевров данного Мастера!!!

  • This looks better than new!

    • One of these days you should throw us all for a loop and say, "This screw is missing . . . . . I go to the store and buy new one!" and then proceed to film yourself actually picking one up from a hardware store :p

  • Trabalho profissional, muito bacana!

  • А какая смазка используется для шестеренок?

  • Фанат фасок, одобряю

  • Really gorgeous result! I love that you used the original shaft to make so many replacement parts. Well done, sir!

  • 4:28 wow! glad to see you repaired that green switch... :D (it was tickling my OCD so hard :D)

  • Na verdade isso é uma morsa.

    • Hello Everyone!

  • Is this for sale? I would like to buy it!

  • The Dremel tool sounds exactly like my ex wife

  • Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stunner!!

  • Красота.

    • Mais obra feita com destreza, qualidade e perfeição que fica até melhor do que quando estava nova de fábrica . Parabéns!!!! Vc é o MESTRE DA RESTAURAÇÃO

  • I'm glued to this and I don't even know what a deadlocked vise is 🤣

    • Love it! New parts from old pieces , keep it original as possible. That’s my way of thinking 🤔

    • お母さんが子供を守ってるかっこいいお母さん!😊😊

    • Спасибо за фильм. Обязательно посмотрю. Обожаю биографичные фильмы, они самые интересные.

  • The color is very beautiful.

  • Great job sir.

  • Each time, I'm telling myself: "... Too much time & effort to put for repairing the GARBAGES !!..." Each time, at the end, I say: "... Woow !! It's REALLY worth it !!..." Something is wrong in my head, I guess ... XDXDXD

  • Those screws are massive. 😆 Looks like a damn rebar screw, but significantly larger than those in circumference.

  • Awzm .... 👌👏

  • Not a restoration if you modified it to use new hardware that it was not made with.

    • @my mechanics uh yeah you did those two new holes

    • But yeah, I did not modify it

  • U r best

  • Fajnie jest jak nie ma się takich maszyn, zrobić to wszystko bez nich, to jest wyczyn. 👍🏿

    • I love how you will use some of your old projects with the ones you're currently restoring. Well done

  • YOU are a genius 😍😍😍

    • One of these days you should throw us all for a loop and say, "This screw is missing . . . . . I go to the store and buy new one!" and then proceed to film yourself actually picking one up from a hardware store :p

    • A Fran deveria ir pro glow up o reality show de maquiagens ela ia arrasar

  • This one is just a beautiful as the first one you did. Again, I would still have "improved" the thrust washer on the outside where the shaft pulls against it to tighten the jaws by using a slotted piece rather than just a semi-circular one. You get a larger bearing surface which will last longer and put less off-axis torque on the shaft. Still, the mfg designed it that way. So, they probably think it's adequate. Again, also, why do you prefer smooth jaws? Isn't the main purpose of the vise to grip? Doesn't using a smooth surface reduce its ability to grip? If you worry about marring the work you put into it, can't you achieve the same goal by using sacrificial jaws made of aluminium or bronze (or some other non-marring material)? One other suggestion/idea. You could probably do a much quicker and easier job painting the raised lettering by using a foam roller to apply it. I've done this many times on hardware items I have either made or repaired/restored. I've even used that to detail damaged raised white letters on tires (tyres).

    • Wow, that was so therapeutic to watch 😊 That lathe and milling machine are fine machines. Must of cost a small fortune. This vice has transcended it's function of just being a tool. It's now a work of art, it belongs in a glass cabinet imho. I couldn't bear to even scratch it if it was mine 🙂

    • 14:37 That transition was so smooth, it nearly broke my brain.

    • You can complain all you want about the, "whole paycheck," nickname. But I know for a fact Whole Foods jacks up prices on most items, especially anything packaged. You can go to Kroger/King Soopers or Sprouts and pay much less for the same foods. Pretty sure Trader Joe's is cheaper too.

  • could you send me this vice as a gift? I need a vice for my little home projects, but I am in a really tight financially situation, I can't even spare 35 euros for a cheap chinese one

  • Hi, guy.... Excelent job!!... Congratulations from Brazil...

  • Chamfer all the things!

  • ты просто волшебник

  • Szukałem złota a trafiłem na diament 😍 Oglądam po kolei i nie mogę się napatrzeć. Szczególnie że lubię imadła. Bardzo satysfakcjonujące wideo 👌👏

  • Have you ever considered using electrolysis to convert rust back to iron? That minimizes loss of material, and causes less pitting than sand blasting. It often also dissolves paint, especially if you use enough NaCO3 in the eltrolyte bath. Frozen parts often loosen after electrolysis.

  • Wonderful...

  • bravo je suis vraiment ému vous êtes un vrai artiste

  • An amazing work. Congratulations

  • So hard working with unique talent.

  • Wow! Perfect 👍👍👍

  • I have a similar vise. It looks ugly and rusty, but it works like a charm and I won't even attempt a restoration of it because I don't have your machinery. However, I did enjoy your skills and the beautiful result.

    • Adoro seus vídeos de restauração, são melhores e bem mais minuciosos que os outros restauradores a começar as próprias ferramentas que vc usa são impecáveis, como sou chato com meus instrumentos de trabalho e com os trabalhos que faço também sempre gosto da perfeição, dou os parabéns pra você e seu programa, continuem assim !!!!

    • Using damaged parts to re-make missing ones is a nice touch.

    • Hol rocky wieder Mit allen Mitteln Armer Rocky😭

  • Magnificent!

  • magnifique travail comme d'habitude !!

    • Oscar: "Aca tenemos un salmon de Nueva Zelanda pescado por los Dioses del Olimpo" Yo: Acá tenemos mis sardinas, comprados en el super una chulada :"v

  • tu as fait quoi aujourd'hui , oh bin , j'ai frotté , frotté , frotté , frotté ...............................

  • Конечно красиво , но если бы сделали гидро привод было бы технически красиво ....

  • IMPRESIONANTE .

  • That was a very good display of skill, pleasant to watch transformation, The vise turned out great !!!

    • וואו! איזה שיר. סוף סוף סגנון של פעם - אייל אתה מספר 1!!!!

  • Genial. But did you forget to make the streaks on the vise jaws? Anyway, it's fantastic what you're doing. Bravo. Exceptional.

  • Чётко

  • At 2:00 it looks like the jaw on the left has a face 😃 Nice work on this one!

  • Does anyone know what is the name of the chemical liquid that helps to remove rust from metals?

  • Masterfully done 💯💯💯✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼🤣😂😆😅

  • Come on be honest, did you use an entire can of WD-40 on that jaw?

  • What kind of milling machine and Metal lathe are you using out of curiosity? I'm thinking about investing in a small CNC Machine and Metal Lathe for some side projects. Awesome job with the restoration. :)

  • This is easily one of the best channels on ILaward. Thanks for all the great videos.

  • A+++

  • That was quite the idea to make ah reverse vice to open the dead lock jaws haha great video 👍

  • Ну шпаклевать тиски это Канеш сильно… в музей если только… а если ими работать-отлетит все

  • Stunning job

  • Good morning. What is the best way to loosen a welded wood vise bolt that is welded with Rust it's manufactured by the Columbia Vice Co Cleveland Ohio. Anticipating a response thank You.

  • Hot damn that's some vise!! You are a master machinist! Edit: I commented before I saw the very end of the video. I was wondering who deserved this vise; then you mounted it. Extraordinary!

    • 13:54 Abi bence WoT(World of Tanks) ve WoWS(World of Warships) gameplayleri çekebilirsin. Üst level tanklara ve gemilere çıkmak kolay olmuyo ama ben bu oyunların sen reklamını yapmadan önce de fanatiğiydim. Bence reklamını yaptığına göre bir şeyler biliyorsundur. Yani seni bu videolarda görmeyi isterim. Saygılarımla

  • Me when I realized loctite is for when you want something to "lock tight"

    • Мастер с большой буквы!!! Золотые руки у этого человека. Браво!!! Видео завораживает, не замечаешь как проходит время при просмотре шедевров данного Мастера!!!

    • I cannot stop listening to this. There is something about how she sings and communicate through her stares. It makes you weak and vulnerable. Makes you fall in love.

  • Nicely done !

  • Amazing!! It's is just too pretty use. That is a Show Vice! Bravo

    • I love how you're forcing open the stuck Gressel vice ... while being held in a Gressel vice.

    • Watching a talented machinist is like watching an artist paint or sculpt. Beautiful work.

    • Ухуу щеночки, на самом деле вы так классно снимаете влоги не выпендриваясь не наигранно, сейчас очень редко можно встретить таких влогеров и блогеров буквально по пальцам можно пересчитать)))

    • This definitely is the album of the year

    • Nice to hear that, thank you :-)

  • Why don't you use a anti seize compound instead of grease??

  • I love the idea you used to pull put the bushings. Next time maybe make the top plate out of aluminum, Use a washer to weld to the bushings/studs this way you can reuse

  • Looks good when you scrape away the ageing coat.

  • 23:27 did he just fay f**k

  • Maybe a little too much ?

  • А зачем хвост на винте прослабил??? Это всего лишь тиски, зачем их так лизать?

  • Это прям шоу какое-то.

  • SUPER JOB

  • Maybe it should be called a GREASELL!

  • Хорошим инструментом и дурак сделает. А ты попробуй сделать с помощью молотка, зубила и напильника!

  • Да это гонево шпаклевать тески

  • 👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍

    • What's IMPORTANT to remember is: Whenever Donny is given a start, its always with a weakened team. He NEVER gets a start in the full strength Premier league starting line up to show what he can do, its always with the 2nd team or as a sub. Disgusting really.

    • Thank you
