Im looking into having the jaws milled off the big grey vise you see in the picture and having a set of custom jaws put in. Just trying to see if it's cost effective to have this done.

Custom meaning having "BCOM" machined into them? That'd be sweet

I just ordered this. It's the cheapest ive ever seen on a USA made bullet with a free Sledgehammer! The vise goes for around $450 by itself. I ordered one real quick! Ive got shelves filled with much better vises, but I couldnt resist.

If anyone is considering buying one, id do it sooner than later. I doubt this special price will last very long and it will switch back to $350 soon. Nobody else even comes close to this price.

If I was to buy a vise from you Bcom, what do you throw in on the side?? A sledgehammer?

Man you wouldnt want one of my vises. I can't compete with big business shipping costs. Big business can ship for free. Its costs my $80 just to ship a 50lb vise to California.

Just picked up this Snapon vise last night. It's in great shape however it didn't have a swivel base so I stole a base off one of my parts vises and now she's complete :)

Ive got the base sitting in my dunk tank. I'm not gonna restore the vise. It looks cool enough as it is. Just not sure what to do with the swivel base. Prime it and leave it that way for the buyer or leave the base bare metal for the buyer or try to match some kind of paint to the original Snapon Red which won't work. Still not sure how to approach this.

I was considering doing a Snapon orange one for some time but after doing the Snapon green one, ive found that more people want a Snapon Red over other colors. I even had one guy tell me to strip my green one and repaint it red and he'd buy it.

This poor guy stopped at my house today and wanted a new set of jaws for his 9500 Wilton he just bought for $20 at an auction. Look at the beating this thing has taken to wear away both jaw sides in where it makes a huge dip into the iron and jaws. This vise would have had to have been beaten on for decades for this to happen. I told him the vise was scrap and sold him an old Tradesman with good jaws for $70 to ease his pain.





This is what I sold him

That's crazy, I like the green better than any red I've seen.


Man that vice has had a **** of life! At first glance of the first picture I didn't even know what it was until I read on.

I've always liked those hammers. Well, except the 20 pounder. Didn't like that one!

Nutt, you gotta get your vise done. Do whatever it takes man. Get it done.
Doveman, what did you have for a vise? I don't remember. This thread had gotten old and I forget whats in it.😁
