I picked up an old Ohio Tools leg vise for $10 from an antique dealer but it’s missing a few parts.
Does anyone know where I can get a female threaded block that the long wooden screw would engage on the back of the vise?

Perhaps you could get someone that has the tap to make you one.

What’s the diameter of the screw?

What you are looking is called the nut. Post the diameter of the threaded male portion and how many threads per inch and I bet some on here could make you one.

Screw is 2 3/8 and there are 3 threads per inch if that sounds about right.

Have your say...
