Broken Vise Restoration - Gressel Switzerland.
In this video i'm restoring a broken swiss vise.
Like, comment, subscribe.
I bought this vise from a friend for 20$. It was super rusty and dirty, one part was missing, two screws were broken off and the movable jaw was completely stuck. Gressel is very well known in switzerland for making very good, if not the best vises. That fact made it absolutely worth to restore it. They still produce this type of vise today, they just made some very small changes over the years. I found out that they built their vises in this style until 1991. So it's at least 27 years old. It had the rough jaws on, but you could always choose if you want them with rough or flat jaws when you buy a new one. I'm not a fan at all of the rough jaws, because they ruin every surface of clamped pieces. So I decided to put flat jaws on. I still restored the rough ones and I'm going to keep them. I restored this vise for myself.
I hope you like my work and the video.

Questions a lot of people are asking: 1. Are you romanian? I'm from switzerland 2. How to fix it on the bench? With 3 screws, two in the front and one in the back. 3. How long did it take? I worked on it for a week. 4. WD-40 is no penetrating oil. Yes, i know now thanks. 5. Why not sandblast before grinding? Sandblasting does hurt/damage the material, it takes material off. That's why i would need to tape the surfaces anyway. 6. Oilstone without oil? You can use it wet or dry, no problem. You find more infos in the discription. Thank you for watching :-)

Cool, so assuming a ball-park figure of $45 per hour for a skilled machinist/mechanic, at 40 hours it would cost approx. $1,800 to have this work done, not considering cost of material.

+my mechanics Ist auch ein schönes Statement gegen die Wegwerfgesellschafft und das solche Sachen mit ein bisschen Mühe wieder gängig gemacht werden können. Warum auch nicht, Ergebnis sieht spitze aus und die Grundlage ist ein Qualitätswerkzeug, zu schade für den Schrott. Ich schätze du hattest auch Spaß daran, sofern stellt sich die Frage ob ein neuer weniger kostet, in Vergleich zum Aufwand nicht. Respekt!

This was my favorite tool back when I was a kid. I still find it weird seeing a Romanian product in a video made by someone from switzerland...anyways, greetings from Romania!

Das Ergebnis ist beeindruckend, ohne Zweifel, aber wäre es nicht einfacher gewesen, einen neuen Gressel zu kaufen? Da ging's wohl mehr um das Machen, oder?

Great work! The only problem is that if I went through the kind of work you did to fix that I would be worried I might hurt the paint job... Thus the vice would become a decoration rather than a tool. LoL

Very satisfying to watch, I know it's not because of money but I can't resist to ask, is it expensive to buy a new one?
