Vintage Garage


Over the past couple of months I’ve become obsessed with vintage American bench vises (namely 1950’s Wilton bullet mechinist vises). This shot is from 1917 and shows a big Prentiss vise. I bet it’s still around working hard for a living today. Wondering if that’s a Baldor grinder in the background too.

    Love that old Prentiss photo and ad! I’m just surfing the Web tonight due to my own obsession with vises (is that a vise vice?) – specfically Prentiss vises.

    I’m always on the lookout for a rare / unique Prentiss – hard to come by used…kind of like a well-made modern vehicle, people just don’t give them up!
