    does anyone have a source for replacement jaws for this old vise I am trying to get in working condition?

    I always found my vise jaws hiding in a piece of flat bar. Just remove the material that doesn't look like the jaw I need.

    I got some reasonably priced hardened jaws for my big Charles Parker a couple of years ago on Ebay. The guy had a business making jaws for old vises.

    My vise had serrated jaws. I made a set of steel V jaws with a horizontal V and a vertical V for holding round stock. A set of aluminum jaws for delicate parts and a set of delrin for riley delicate parts.

    started making a set of flat steel jaws today - once those are done I am going to either make a set of aluminum jaws or maybe just magnetic aluminum caps. Not sure which way I will go with that part yet.
