Thumbs up Another Wicked Vise

Hi Folks, my 2nd son gifted me a "Joplin"plain screw 7 vise which he purchased for his dear ol' Dad off Ebay. The poor guy who sold it has a serious problem & has to sell all his equipment so I will always remember him when using it.
Haven't heard the make Joplin for a long time & was wondering if anyone else knows anything about them. Apart from a little surface rust it's in pretty good nick. It doesn't have a quick release lever(don't care) & I'm going to get a photo of it after it's painted. Wondering if anyone else has a Joplin vise? Best wishes to all, James jj777746

Have you no shame? making us wait for the "after" pic without providing the "before" shot?

If theres no pics of the work, then you bought it new.

Hi Bob I should have had the photo taken before I cleaned the rust & caked on grease off it as it looked pretty rough.It's a long way from pristine now but I've mounted it to my bench & it works perfectly.When fully extended it opens 10 inches but I don't think I'll ever put anything that wide in it.Before & after photos will arrive in due course James jj777746
