Wilton vise

A while back I picked up a new (to me) 4" Wilton vise at a local secondhand shop.
The vise was in excellent shape, just a little grungy, so all it really needed was
a quick cleaning and a paintjob. She started off like this; a nice, well-used,
but not abused Wilton 9400, a fairly basic 4" machinists bench vise.
"Machinist" in this case doesn't mean "mill vise", it just means it doesn't have pipe jaws.
Back in the day, a "machinist" had to do quite a bit of hand work to finish a part, including
chiseling, filing and sawing, which he'd often do with the part in a bench vise.
