Default Wilton vise

Hi folks, new member here and found the forum after researching a vise I picked up..Was wondering about a Wilton I picked up yesterday in Cave City, KY at an old antique store..Was needing a vise anyway and I did get this one for 75.00, after cleaing it and freeing it up, it works and turns 360 degrees perfect. Have read a some threads here about the Wiltons, mine has a tag on it and is not stamped Wilton, cannot find a date...Thanks and am looking foward to enjoying this forum

First off, welcome! Glad to have you.

Never seen one like that. I'm going to guess built in the 70's. It is probably one of the mid-level Wiltons that they often sold to others companies for them to put their name on (thus the name plate versus a cast name).

Fair deal on a good vise. Enjoy it.
