Welcome to group.Hi
I´m Peter. I live in Istria and fortunately brought a lot of kit with me when I came here. It was just as well as, apart from the shipyards down in Pula, there isn't much industry here and consequently little access to the sources of materials that I was used to.
One thing that I am stumped for is drawings, or at least pictures of a similar milling machine vice that I need to make. The castings came from College Engineering (CES) 30 years ago and are nicely matured ! CES no longer do them. I've emailed someone on eBay who apparently did castings for CES but haven't heard back yet.
Has anyone made one or could point me in the right direction please ?View attachment 125527View attachment 125528View attachment 125529
What about an advert om Home Workshop.co. UJK?.

I answered a weird ad for information on a bloke's compass and inclinometer which probably used by the Royal Observer Corps when the South Coast radar sttations were knocked out by Stukas in the battle of Britain. I worked out the trig and calulated on the possible wings[an as a side of a triangle on a He111K bomber/
Believe me, there are a lot of ild farts who can recall far more thi ngs like vices.
Now then Stubbs Gazette from the Olden Days will have lots of things like debts and b ankrupcies and liquidations. Where? Betcha Ken walked past it on the way to RAF Hendon.

Well Yes but I cannot see why a 70+ gentleman living in Istria and trading as 'property business' for the last 20+ years is so intrsted in a very modestly priced casting.I feel a bit of caution as I read this thread - searching on the internet for "vice plans" could have unintended consequences ... !
Thank you for the very kind offer Riccardo. I have now obtained a set of original drawings.Hello Peter
From the pictures your casting look very similar to the vices I used at my previous workplace.
If you are interested I can try and make drawings for it. Unfortunately I moved recently and I don't have a PC with me, but I enjoy hand drafting so it will not be a big issue (just a little longer in the making)
