I got a free workbench that has been well many years
ago. It had an Abernathy Bench Vise and a tail
vise using a single bench screw. The bench screw is fine,
but the Abernathy vise appears to be missing some
kind of nut or threaded piece that the screw can drive
into and close the vise. Does anyone know about these?
What should I do to fix it?
On a different note, it's a very strange thing to
cannibalize an old workbench. There's a lot of work
done on it. It's too bad it was made out of construction
lumber and pine. It is rotted and falling apart in
