    Re: Latest Find - 1960's Record No 6 Mechanics Vise

    Used vises use to be cheap, even the new 4" #3s were under $50. CT even sold them as Mastercraft. Now they are suddenly collector pieces. The Yanks don't have Record vises, I chuckle at what they pass off as a great vise. BTW Canadian made RAE are cast steel, not cast iron.

    In the maintenance shop at work we had a #6, but with the quick slide. The abuse to took was amazing.

      Hi ErikM, thank you, I’m not here for long though. I understand the answer to my question is nobody knows.

        When I was checking up on old pair of Record #52 woodworking vises, I think I found the information on an English woodworking site. I think the handle knob was the dating feature.
