Restoring a rusty vice for the workshop

In the last few weeks, Gil has been putting together a workspace at home to continue working on projects and testing out new equipment and workflows.

On a recent walk, Gil found a rusted bench vice that had been thrown out on the sie of the road. The vice was rusted shut and looked like it had been set outside in the elements for a few years. Needing a vice for his workshop, and not wanting to see this tool lost to the ravages of time, Gil took on the challenge of restoring a rusty vice back to its former functional state.

Check out the video below to see the steps Gil took to restore the rusty vice back to pristine condition and give it a place in the workshop.
