An old vise came with our house. It is attached to a workbench.
When I turn the handle, the part of the vise that moves (over the body of the vise) will extend backwards, but when I reverse it, to close it on something, there is no motion inward.
I have to physically push on the end of the "jaw" to get it to slide in.
So, you can't tighten it.
Should I take it down for scrap value, or...?
