This is the vise that everyone wants and needs. The D3 was the largest and heaviest vise that Disston made. These vises are not common as not many were sold. Even more scarce is finding one with the complete saw filing guide intact like this example.
Vise retains 97% of the original finish, has 13" jaws and weighs 11.4 pounds. As can be seen in the photos, vise has the complete filing assembly which allows the filer to maintain a more consistent rake and fleam angle. To use, you will need to turn a handle with a collar that fits inside the holder.
A fantastic find, first one offered for sale here at VintageSaws.com.
