the way of patina. There is just a whisker of mushrooming on the top.

Emmert Turtleback Patternmaker Vise To Restore. This is in as found,
fresh from the shop condition. There is a bunch of saw dust residue
shop patina from decades of use. The front jaw wiggles and it looks
like the inside of the front jaw has some chipping around the hole
the shaft, but I can't say for sure. The hinge on the mounting
doesn't move but I didn't really nuts with it. The main screw does
work. This is missing the tilt bracket and rod but most of the are.
This is what it is but for the money you ain't gonna do much better.
