    I have a large one as well. Jaws are only 5" wide but she weight a ton. Blacksmith's vice. Made so that you can bash the hell out of them, unlike most bench vices. But she's no precision instrument.

    @Cremulator its missing the mounting plate but thats
    no problem.
    Mount it on a stump , you can pound all day with a 5lb mash
    hammer and you wont stress the vice at all.
    Perfect for any heavy jobs and I mean heavy jobs.
    Grab some chalk and rub on the back of the jaws
    it may have a makers mark like Peter Wright considered
    the Guru of leg vices and anvils
    How wide are the jaws on you leg vice???
    Heres three proper tools add my furnace and you can make anything
    he he he

    Yeh it was welded to a steel table. You can see where I had to cut the welded tabs where the old mounting plate would have been.
    I think the jaws are about 150mm wide. I'll have to measure them when I get a chance.

    Bit of copper pipe, welder and a screwdriver to make an easy out for bolts broken deep into the thread.

    Can’t take credit for this concoction (Youtubey) but have been carrying around both emergency parts for a little while now:


    As soon as the Superglue hits the Bi-Carb you need to move incredibly quick before the strongest ever Epoxy type joint is bonded


    Would easily patch a plastic OEM Nissan Radiator too, keep em in your kit

    Thank you so much Hodgey Mate!!
    Makes total sense now Brother Appreciated
    The reason I completely broke my cookers plastic dial off was the right side completely jammed on dangerously so the Leatherman Multitool had to kick into gear ripping it off and then using its pliers to contain the situation
    Debacle, but still the best wind ‘resistant’ cooker I’ve owned to date

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
