      I laughed at your comment, but I always wonder what can the sharp edges possibly have done to him in the past for him to hate them so much!

    He has what seems like a dream "job"! I'm guessing there are tedious parts too, maybe the whole video production aspect takes some fun out of it all, but man... To repair old and interesting stuff to a higher than factory standard and, hopefully, be well compensated for it is just an awesome way to live! I'm so envious!

    I am a lady in her mid-seventies with no interest or aptitude in engineering or mechanics, but oh! how I love to watch you repair these damaged tools and restore them to a state of beauty and a second life. I particularly enjoy it when you make a tool to help you solve some problem. I am so impressed by the filming and editing of your projects. Your work is far superior to that of any other restoration channel. Thank you for the pleasure it has given me over the years.

    as a amateur mechanic i really LOVE to see you keeping everything so clean and orderly in your shop/garage. I am of that same kind of person, and has even painted my workbech white to see all dirt easier. My "thing" is to get into small projects where i do new things out of anything. As i have a rather poor childhood i learned to make my own tools and come up with solutions to problems. LOTS of trial and errors. Like i can feel pretty easy now when a bolt is starting to break, and backs off.
    I love what you do and i wish i had all your tools and machines.
    But mostly i love your relaxed style, just doing it slowly and methodically.
    THAT is what makes these videos extra good.

    • Face2theScr33n
      Face2theScr33n 15 hours ago

      @HelplmChoking Fair enough, I just wish mass-produced things were a little higher on the quality chart. These days, half of the aftermarket car parts are junk in a box and don't even work. Things we take for granted, like heat-treating a camshaft so it's properly hardened for example. People have perfected heat-treating steel, hardening and tempering. Then, some bean-counters threw away the recipe for success to save a buck.
      Another major problem is the loss of value in currencies. When money actually had intrinsic value, sincere effort was made to earn that money. Therefore, things were of better quality. Don't forget the wage stagnation of the last 30 years before the lockdowns inspired people returning to the workforce that demand more money or stay home instead.
      Now, all too many currencies are barely worth the cost of materials and effort to produce. And it can be robbed from you at the whim of Government/Corporate kleptocratic fascist assholes through inflation and devaluation at any time. How many people signed up for pensions that sounded good 30 years ago and now have to work through retirement because the money is worthless?
      Sorry, just ranting. I don't mean to be rude to you, or even really disagree. I'm just shaking my head thinking things could be better. I just took a job maintaining vacation properties, and one rented at Christmas for USD $90,000 PER WEEK! That is a lot of money for a one week vacation, and it makes me think our currency is a fucking joke all things considered. Can't live without it though, I guess...

      @Face2theScr33n that's why this channel hurts to watch sometimes lol can't help imagining a world where every single thing I have was built to this level. Imagine your car, but every nut and bolt was turned to a precise fit, every casting was machined, filed and sanded to a perfect finish and not a single mass produced part existed! It would be a beautiful, intricate and higher quality than literally any other car.
      Sadly, it would take years of man hours and cost an equally eye watering amount, I guess mass production has its place

    This channel is right at the borderline of OCD. The dedication and attention to the last detail is amazing. I also restored an old small 60mm YORK vice, the old, rounded model, not the current version. While I removed all rust and paint and painted new, I do not have a lathe, nor mill, nor sandblasting box, nor welder. But it turned out still pretty nice, but marks from previous use are still noticeable. I wish I had the tools, time and patience like we see on this channel. I love watching your videos, you are simply the best. The last time I used a lathe or mill was 23 years ago. I liked the manual work.

    I loved this video. It's wonderous. Clearly dangerous though, in particular the sandblasting the surface, after having used a solvent or oil - I'ld like to know. I would not have increased the size of it. It is a treasure. This video is like surgery on a rusted metallic solid.

    I watch tons of restoration videos from all sorts of different Clip-Sharers, but somehow yours always end up just being on another level. Not that the others are lacking in any way, yours are just the best.
    The editing, the production, the quality of the finished product, etc…
    I’ve also noticed that you keep the always seem to know precisely how long to show us each of the repetitive steps like filing, sanding, sand blasting each part, etc. so that we get the idea without it getting boring. Even though you may spend 10 minutes or something sandblasting a part, we only see a few seconds. I appreciate it as a viewer.

    Weird question... what do you do with the metal waste when you mill things? I'm not as concerned about the environmental issues with it, more the creative.

Love the channel, love the work, it soothes me while giving me motivation to work on my own projects.

      If the snap comes right as the bolt moves for the first time, you're good. If it comes right after the bolt seems to move, although quite slowly and difficultly, then you're most likely screwed.

I would be terrified I would mess them up some how 😂, perhaps you just have more confidence in your steady hands. 👏 Amazing build as always, and your comment section always has me dying of laughter.

    This was my favorite vise restoration so far. The bluing turned out amazing and it looked awesome with that red and white.

    I love that you finally got to the tiny vise! Would be great to get a picture of all of them side by side. Gray, Green, Blue & Red. :)

    Step one. Soak the whole thing in Evapo-Rust for two or three days.
    That stuff works.

    It's too bad they don't have something similar to an Academy Award for restorations. If they did, I'd be one of many nominating you for Best Master Restorer. As always, definitely worth the wait. Nobody even comes close in terms of thoroughness and quality of finish.

    I wish you had videos more often, but I will take quality over quantity any time and your quality is second to none. Simply beautiful.

    As usual, I am full of admiration for your talent, precision and care of every detail. The vice after the reconstruction certainly looks better than it was new. Braaavo!

    "Quickly made this tool." Just that would be totally beyond my skills and patience. Forget any actual restoration on my part.

    As many of your viewers likely did, I started watching these videos when I was recommended the first rusty vice video here that got several million views. It's great to see yet another vice get the 'my mechanics' treatment as that first one did. In fact, I love watching all of the restorations you've done, whether they are the simpler ones or require more complex techniques and research into the origins of the tool or item in question.
    Regardless, the professional work and dedication to good presentation make for a very calming experience in times when it seems most forms of media and entertainment are aimed at accomplishing the opposite effect. Thank you!
