I'm sure someone commented, Schiller Park, Illinois. Chicago suburb, next door to O'Hare Airport. Also, look on the bottom of the vise. You'll see a number, example; 4-53. That's the date of the warranty expiration which means it was made in April of 1948.

Kearney & Trecker provided their apprenticees with this size Wilton Vices for mounting on their Tool Boxes back in early 60's. I have a very Large Wilton , a bit beat up, and the jaws are a bit rounded off, but it works Very Well, and I think 20 + years ago I bought it from a guy for $40.00. It was exactly what I was looking for. I also have a couple of Large Columbian Vices, they are well made also. The Columbian vices we had mounted everywhere around the plant at Kearney & Trecker

I don't think you can really go wrong with a Wilton bullet, a Colombian, or a Parker. The bullet would be the one to get from Wilton if you can afford it though, I've heard many say that for a standard vise Colombian was superior. Wilton's game truly was the bullet and they just didn't know the classic pattern of vise like Colombian did. I have heard that for a new vise the English made Record ( maybe still offered by Irwin ) is a bit better than a US made Wilton, but I'm willing to bet both companies are doing whatever they can not to be ran off by less expensive imports.

With a lock up that perfect, those copper soft jaws are as valuable for protecting the vice as much as the workpieces. Just beautiful.

Ahhh, synchronicity . . . I was just looking for an affordable vices a couple of days ago. I've never seen one like that. It's awfully purty. I love the copper paint. I'm glad that one went to someone who appreciates it. Sealed screw, rounded features and car fender lines notwithstanding; the way the jaws curve smoothly around with no 90 degree corners to concentrate stresses is simply the best design practice. Can anyone point out a single improvement that could be made on it?

I bought a 2 foot piece of railroad track from a scrap yard, and turned it into a pretty good anvil just with an angle grinder, torch, and a welder. Took some work, but well worth it. It's been a real help many times, and on multiple repair and other work.

Very Nice Vise... I bought a 5 or 6 inch unbranded vice from a scrap yard and restored it, and have used it for a lot of work. Would love to get a nice Wilton, just need a real shop to put it in first LoL

@ Wranglerstar Hi, I am follower from the Czech Republic. I am glad that the work of our ancestors who settled in the USA is still appreciated today. It is not for nothing that we have the proverb "Golden Czech Hands" (which means that Czech man can do almost everything). Greetings from the Czech Republic and I look forward to more projects. Keep it up.

Hi Cody, the size of the iron plate is important, it is not just plucked out of the air. By using the sizes, you can make most things because anything you want is in 2X, 6X, or 12X or a division of those.

Nice you have the rubbers on its handles. Thats a major safety feature of any vise. I bought my bulletvise about 38 years ago. It was about 360$ dollars then. Then I inheireted a 6” whats like new.i I dont swivel mine much, so I used regular nuts on its swivel locks. Those slide handles get in the way for me.
