**Hello. Please examine entire ad and pictures before contacting me.**

Up for sale is a Rapid 125 bench vise. Heavy duty! Great for an industrial, commercial and homeowner environment or enjoyed by a collector. This vice is completely restored to showroom new condition. This vise opens and closes with smooth / precise movement. Ready to put to work

More information about this vise: Manufactured in Poland by Bison-Bial, a world class manufacturer of top quality vises, lathe chucks, work holding tools and other machine accessories for the tool & die industry. "Rapid" was one of the brands sold for the Western market. This vise is very well designed. Examples are a spring loaded spindle that eliminates backlash and pads cast inside the stationary body to eliminate slop in the movement (see 9th picture). As you can see in the last group of pictures, the jaw faces have plenty of life left in them and the spindle & nut threads are in excellent condition.

About this restoration:
This vise had a professional restoration to bring it as close to new as I could. Not an aerosol overhaul.
This vise was stripped down to bare metal. Prepped, painted, polished and lubricated. Some small repairs were made, as would be expected with a 52+ year old vise. However, there was no structural damage. Battle scars and blemishes were preserved, as I feel this adds to the vise's character.
