I've been considering getting a small vice to help out on my lantern bench. I have a 4" downstairs, but a smaller one upstairs at the bench would be helpful. 

Then I remembered I had an old one, and dug it out.
 
Fulton model 1825, 2.5". I've had this in storage probably 40 years, can't remember where or how I acquired it. I'm sure I can refurb this vise (with some basic guidance, since I've never dismantled a vise before). I found a tutorial of sorts on youtube, looks like good info.

I posted in a vise thread on Garage Journal forum, but can't get anyone to talk to me.  😃  
So I thought I'd see if there are any vise collectors/restorers here, where members are more willing to share their advice and guidance.

I need some basic info, like why is only one jaw step cut? Where can I get replacement soft jaws for the step-cut jaw, or is it something I need to make custom? Or should I have the other side machined? I didn't see any screw holes in either face to hold soft jaws. Should I drill and tap to hold soft jaws, or use magnetic ones?  Any idea on the age/date of an Fulton1825? Anyinfo/advice is appreciated. 
Thanks!

Let her rip man.  They are very low tech, especially that style.  They are very fun to resto.  I polish the steel on the handle and the slide area.  Paint the rest your favorite color.  Put some good bearing grease on the screw.  Looks like you have a great opportunity to make at least one nice jaw!

As for your missing step jaw insert you are on your own but for soft jaws I just use some aluminum angles I bent up. They are not as user friendly as the factory ones that stay in place well but they get the job done.

You did get some (late) responses on GJ,  Sometimes someone (like Smitty) posts something spectacular and everyone gets distracted... Fairly common.

I'l go into more detail here as I didn't notice you wanting soft jaws,

As mentioned on GJ no mounting = cast in place jaws.  Some PO beat on it and knocked the jaw out.  So you can use a file and square off the ledge and make a jaw to replace, and drill and tap for mounting holes.  Counter sink or counter bore so the heads are slightly recessed.

You can make the jaw from steel or aluminum, but that only gets you one soft jaw with aluminum.  

Some like smooth jaws to they are less likely to mar, other like the jaws to have "Teeth".  Both have uses and for your stated purpose I'd seriously consider smooth.

if the existing jaw has teeth you can get a metal cutting belt on a belt sander and smooth that one.  - I like to vise mount my belt sander for this type of work...

Once you have jaws soft jaws can be many types.  I have them made from copper, aluminum, thick lead sheet, wood, (soft and hard) and plastic.  Some I made some I bought.

I've seen them also in rubber, phenolic, and many other materials.

Thank you all for your valuable input. I did just take a look at the late posts on GJ; some valuable info there too. Apparently this vise dates between 1905 and 1922!!  
I'll work on this vise as time permits between now and Spring, posting a few pics as I progress.  
Thanks again!  🙂

I've wound up with a few over the years. I just bought the saw vise with the ball swivel today. The Wilton is a model C-0. I was surprised to see what old Wilton bullet vises, etc. are selling for now, many hundreds, used...in nice shape. The Wilton Baby bullets bring $500 on up regularly.

No pics but I bought a vise at a flea market recently because mine is damaged and I've been expecting it to fail any day now for a long time. I happened to see the American made one that I bought for $20 and picked it up. A couple of days later I discovered that Lowes still sells the same vise for $188. What a deal I got!

Thanks outlaw, I've been distracted a bit.  GJ Vises can be a tough one to crack into, but they are really good folk like here.  As for the vise, cleaning and understanding how they are built helps with decision making.  Hard to hurt it any more than it is, there may be cracks so look closely before becoming emotionally invested.  "Value" depends on your goal, functional or collectable.   I'll be in a better place to comment more this Eve.

I bought this small 4" vise when I was a Sophomore HS, in 1962. It was getting kind if beat up so I cleaned it back up and repainted it original hammertone blue and I used amber shellac on the bright parts. I didn't have the Wilton name plate. I contacted Wilton to see if I could get another one. (their website doesn't list them.) The gal texted me back and said they were in limited supply and not for sale, but she would send me one for my project, which she did. Pretty cool.

Hi Joe,

The anvil/vise appears to be the same one Sears sold out of their 1925 (Pre-Craftsman) catalog. - Not sure who actually made these. You are missing the "drill press" parts.  and the hardie cutter

That "Anvil"  (ASO or "Anvil Shaped Object") is cast iron, so don't go whacking on it like it was a forged anvil!   Soft metal,  and light sheet metal flattening is about its limit...

Joseph, that last one is really cool. It might be a good candidate to put in a big 'ol tub of molasses/water for a couple of weeks. It looks like it might have another adjustment besides the thread screw for width. I still have both my grand dads vises around here. One has a foot pedal to work the jaws and the other is a "peg leg" style. I never thought much about old vises until this thread. Now I have one more thing to look for this flea season, I'll start bringing a wagon along! Oh, $4.10 new back then! Wow.

I picked up another Machinists vise at a yard sale today - It pays to ask if they have stuff!

My first Long C Craftsman vise! Mod No. 5186  - These were made for Sears by Reed, and Reed Vises are generally one of the top three highly regarded american vises for quality, fit, and strength.  A deceased Machinist friend of mine would use no other vise, and had several thst has been gussied up beyond recognition.  ( Jaws trued and ground smooth. Slide with a scraped finish, etc...)

Athol/Starrett is another one.  Colombian should be classed in that higher end based on strength alone, as they used Ductile iron instead of cast iron - You will rarely see a Colombian machinists vise broken..  This is how they were able to use castings that were hollow up inside the jaws. 

For some reason, Wilton's bullet and combination vises are really highly regarded commanding a premium price (check out Eprey and see),  Personally I don't see it.  The completely enclosed main screw is nice but I've seen too many with breakage and even bent slides, (these are tubluar adn bend, then bind...)   I do however buy and flip Wilton's regularly.  I've only kept 2 Wiltons: a "baby" bullet (2" jaws) and a 3" as it also is very compact.  (I'd; keep the 2-1/2" "toddler" version if I found one.._)  anything bigger gets flipped. (I have two waiting for refurbishment...)

This Craftsman/Reed will get refurbished and placed with my "long C" tool collection.  I'm told this model is very rare, and a collector has already asked if I would sell it!  (This is one of 2 "Reedman's" he lacks in his collection)   These were made from at least 1937, to at least 1945 (but not past 1948)  Weighs 51 lbs.

I decided I needed a small vise this Summer too.  I found this one at the very next estate sale I went to.  I had to remove it from the bench myself, but it was only $15.00.  Decent quality and a lot cheaper than a new one.  There is usually one in the garage or basement at every estate sale.  This one was actually priced.  Quite often they are over looked by the people putting on the sale and you can name your price.

Here is my entry. A Morgan Chicago 130 swivel base with 3" jaws. Was my Dad's and possibly my Grandfather's who I did not know. 1929 to 1947. Also my little round anvil that comes in handy and 3lb sledge. I also use angle aluminum or wood trim for soft jaws. Might have to make some oak ones someday.

Morgans are well regarded and fine vises.  Do you know if the original paint was blue or grey?  The blue ones were early in the Chicago time span.  After '47 they moved to Aurora, then in 70 were either bought by or became Milwaukee.  (still in business - one of the few US vise companies sill around)

I have a Morgan 135,  but my favorite Morgan is a model 87 I bought in my 20's from the estate of a retired machinist that lived across the street from our hose (Mom still lives there...) .  He was retired when I was in the 5th grade...  Its immaculate and even has the vise jaws,  (the 8X series was a combination vise)
