    Vise ID help - older Wilton 746 (and resto pics!)

    Been doing a restoration on an older Wilton 746 "made in USA". The newer ones are made in China, and the parts don't fit. 5/8 holdowns on this one vs the 1/2 inch on the newer offshore versions.

    Anyone have an idea as to model/year for this or whether the late model jaws will fit on it?

    I wasn't sure what year it was and was hoping to narrow it down for sure. I think you nailed the year. Thanks!

    No... but I just got an email from Wilton today asking me to confirm a dimension on the jaws.
