    Or copper.

    The cap could be riveted at the corners instead of welded.

    Yeah, people use a lot of stone caps around here too, but 4x5 is a lot of cap. Stainless frame with inserts? Stucco over...

    Seems like there's really...

    Graft and corruption were endemic in WW2. Coveted, for example, were American motor pool jobs in Europe. Why? Gas was selling for $5/gallon, in 1940's dollars. T'was a bit of a free for all, private...

    The Wilton is a bit lighter than a Kurt/Kurt style. Approx same jaw height. Taller jaws for the Kurt are widely available, prob more so than the Wilton, but I see the attraction of a lighter vise if...

    It's a hand wheel closer, not a lever closer.

    And BTW, RSB (red stripe) collets are the more precise version of SB collets, also with longer noses. Sweet collets. Nice starter set.
