Hi all,you may not think this is such a big deal,but to buy new would cost well over $100.00.My son Michael bought this one for me for $16.00.I have cleaned it up & oiled it & it is as good as new. As I said in my previous post "Another Wicked Vise"I will post another photo when it is painted. Number 3 Son "Ian,"transferred this pic from an email which I don't know how to do. This is the first true woodworkers vise I've ever owned.
Best wishes,James

Hey James,

Great vice you have there.

I've recently inherited a Joplin 7 myself but the main nut is missing.

I'm trying to find a replacement with not much luck - so I reckon I need to fabricate one.

Could you help me out with a photo of the main nut of your vice if you still have it in use?

I'd greatly appreciate it.

Cheers,
Dom

$16 for that vice is a great deal. A drill with a wire brush will clean that little bit of rust off in minutes and have it looking almost new.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
