    got a new vice, have a new question

    hey guys, so i just picked up a 5" vice from craigslist. its a Chinese unit but for a vice and 2 angle grinders, i don't thank $50 was too bad. problem is that its missing 2 of the jaws for the pipe vice. they are very simple jaws so i was wondering if anyone knew where i could get replacements. now me being the genius i am, i didn't take any pics of the vice but i do have pics of the jaws, about 1/2" thick. i'll post some pics of the vice tomorrow.
    thank you for your help.

    that $50 chinese vise is not likely to have replacement parts available . i'd buy a new one for $50 .
    Northern tool ,BigLots , Horror Freight , any flea market tool table .... last i looked they were $50-60 on a good day.
    a lot of vise for very little virtue .

    I've got a pair I kept from a vise I broke this fall. I'll try to find them and see if they match up with your measurements.

    Mine are 1 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 1/2. You are welcome to them if you think they might work. Shipping is on me.

    heheh, good point OldSkull. If the ones from AKmud won't work, I'd be happy to make a replacement set if you sent me one to model off of.

    AKmud, i think yours will work, it will just limit the size of pipe i can put in there. please pm me your price and paypal address. thank you very much for your help.

    Wintermute: how much would your charges be? i was actually thinking about making my own if i couldn't find any but AKmud stepped up haha.

    thank you guys

    superwelder,

    Considering the time involved, my charge would be the cost of the material (don't know what that is right now), plus shipping, plus $30 for my time.
