Thanks for the warning!!
They should have that on the handle for my mill vise too. The thin chrome peels off and gets in your fingers. I epoxy coated mine to stop it!

Cheers,, Jim

Thanks for the info. I have used Liberty’s Mission style hardware in cabinet doors and drawers.

I guess that’s what happens when we let China produce all our stuff. Not much quality or pollution control.
