Broken Vise Restoration - Gressel Switzerland.

In this video i'm restoring a broken swiss vise.

Like, comment, subscribe.

I bought this vise from a friend for 20$. It was super rusty and dirty, one part was missing, two screws were broken off and the movable jaw was completely stuck. Gressel is very well known in switzerland for making very good, if not the best vises. That fact made it absolutely worth to restore it. They still produce this type of vise today, they just made some very small changes over the years. I found out that they built their vises in this style until 1991. So it's at least 27 years old. It had the rough jaws on, but you could always choose if you want them with rough or flat jaws when you buy a new one. I'm not a fan at all of the rough jaws, because they ruin every surface of clamped pieces. So I decided to put flat jaws on. I still restored the rough ones and I'm going to keep them. I restored this vise for myself.

I hope you like my work and the video.
