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!

I was hoping he would go with the original light green color. That would have looked so cool and retro. However his turned out nice as well.

@Bruce K. Evans - Historian What about having it in a workshop in a museum?

@Scatt2k7 Not by any books I have read on the subject. It is a restoration because he brought it back to a functioning state with a majority of the parts back in it. There are plenty of even older tools that are simply broken or missing parts and you cannot just rebuild with what you have and have it anything but non-working. That is not restoring it--with the possible exception of a museum item. Conservation restoration is different though as the item is not to be used. He is restoring to return it to service so it includes the necessary fixes to make it work. This belongs in a workshop, not a museum.

So it's not entirely restoration is it, it's replacement so a some what misleading title, but don't get me wrong it was thoroughly enjoyable.

3:22 Let's appreciate the fact that the sacrificial part meant to remove stuck bushings is beautifully machined and all edges are deburred. Absolutely wonderful.

It's amazing to know that there are people still left in this world that have a passion to take something old and beat up and make it like new and work better than new like in this video. You're incredible at what you do my friend keep up the great work.

I think most people use the term “good as new” when completing a restoration project, but you cannot say this. You must say “better than new”. So calming seeing you restore items so masterfully

That's my only problem with this channel. The finished result is too good. As soon as you use it and put that first scratch or ding on the flawless work, that would hurt.

Very nice job as always. One tip; put o-rings on each end of handle so the ball ends don't smack into main screw when it slides from side to side.

It's so satisfying watching you remove all of the sharp edges and stress risers from your projects. By any chance do you passivate the metal after sandblasting?

@Shevron Same for me, but considering the amount of practice and knowledge it takes to do restorations this well, I'm willing to check in every now and then with a few of the other channels to see how they improve with more experience. Watching people get better at things has always been really satisfying to me 😊

I found this video while on TRshow for another purpose. It blows me away. It is actually a thrill, to see someone at work whose intent to restore demonstrates not only technical skill, but the same kind of respect I feel for a well made tool or device that deserves the attention you give it. This is exactly the video I would get my grandsons to watch as a valuable lesson, before they inherit my tools later on. I inherited tools from my grandfather, and am able to use them and pass them on because they are properly cared for. Thank you, and very best wishes!

Magnificent. I wish my father had lived long enough to be able to watch this and similar videos. He was a perfectionist; an instrument engineer in charge of all machinery and electronics for Tate & Lyle in London for thirty years and for the Royal Navy in WWII. He was always building and restoring, working to thousands of an inch. He'd have loved this.

Exactly! It is that "Giving something beaten and broken" a complete new chance. Bringing a really quality-item back from scrap and neglect, and restoring it to its former glory. I find that strangely satisfying to watch. Brilliant job!

As a carpenter who does a bit of (hobby level) tool restoration I am so utterly impressed with the skills and end products you achieve. I have always wished I had been able to learn more metal working skills, but I am still picking them up as I can. In the meantime I have your amazing restorations to watch and thank you for sharing them with us all. Headed to Patreon now...

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 🙂

I think I figured out what makes “my mechanics” the superior restorer on TRshow. Watched all of his videos and have dabbled in other restorer channels but I always come back to “my mechanics” because of this difference: Patience. He takes his time to not only include as much detail as he can but to make that detail integral to the restoration. Fantastic content! Can’t wait to watch more!

Awesome job! Just a suggestion on how to make painting the raised letters quicker and neater: pack modeling clay over and around them and carefully push it down with a piece of soft wood, until it is squeezed right down and just the top of the letters is exposed. Clean surface of letters gently with some solvent, prime, paint and remove the clay by carefully pushing it down and breaking it away from the painted letters, with a pencil eraser, or soft cloth, rather than peeling it directly off, to avoid peeling the paint up with it. You can also do this with wax and melt the excess away with a heat gun, which if done carefully, will also help cure the paint onto the raised letters.

As much as I love when you Make A New One from scratch, I have to say I really really loved that you made new screws from the old handle. It's making a new one with recycling. It's also nice cause it's kinda like.. you're returning some of the part to itself. It's nice
