The following pix are what was left of the front and rear jaws

Stupid repair number 1
Stupid repair number 2
What the vise pretty much looked like when I brought it home--not too pretty
As she is today--much better, I think
Here she is in anvil mode. I just lay a piece of scrap I-beam on the notches, clamp it down, and presto--I've got a poor man's anvil.
Yep, that's a true 14 inch opening.
See, I didn't cheat and run the front jaw all the way out of the rear box.
Don't know if you can see it--the jaws are 8.5 inches wide
That's my size 12 foot. Wanted to give a sense of scale
Side shot, with flash
Same, no flash. See the shoulders I cut? All done by hand. Took me about a month. My neighbor thought I was nuts! I thought it was worth it.
And it's also portable!! If I need to go mobile, I load it on my trusty old refrigerator dolly and roll it anywhere it's needed.
