Broken Deadlocked Vise - Perfect Restoration (I did it again)

I bought this vise pretty much 1.5 years ago together with the other Gressel bench vise I already restored and made a video. I also payed $20 for this one. Since then it was laying aroung in my basement. I always knew that I'll restore this one as well, just because it's a Gressel and it will totally worth to safe it from the trash.
This one wasn't that rusty like the other one, but it was also completely deadlocked. The handle was beaten up and bent. The jaws, some screws and two pieces to hold the spindle were missing. The pin that secures the spindle from turning was broken. Because of all that the spindle fell out. This vise has two threads and two concentric bushings to keep the jaws in place. Talking to Gressel I found out that this method was only produced until 1960, so it's at least 60 years old now. It could be from 1943, as both parts had a „43“ stamped on them. As these original jaws are getting no longer produced, I decided to drill an extra hole between the threads to be able to use new jaws. Gressel was so nice to send me new flat jaws. All the bare surfaces were in really bad condition due to heavy use, that's why I decided to weld up material and clean all these surfaces on the milling machine. I replaced the handle with a new one, but I used the old rounded ends again which turned out great. I later secured the ends with Loctite when reassembling. I also made the two missing screws and the broken pin out of the old handle. I choose to paint the whole vise the same color as the movable jaws from the new Gressel vises are, cobalt blue (RAL5013). I think it turned out very well, the white lettering, the shiny bare spots and the black parts match very well.
I hope you like my work and the video.

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 really appreciate your videos. The noises you catch while filming really add to the satisfaction. You use fast forward only to show that a particular action is tedious. And finally the lack of music makes your videos somewhat timeless like the tools and pieces you restore.

I don't think many people realise how much work goes into this restoration but the skill, the camera work (I know how much of a pain that is) - especially getting the camera to focus and on top of that having great lighting to make something like this so easy to watch and enjoy. The editing is flawless and tells this restoration story very well. Great job, keep it up!!!
