FPU Bison Vise Resto'. Cause Baby I'm Worth it.

Welcome back, or thanks for dropping by! So we have a 1950's-1970's FPU bench vise. This really is a fantastic vise. One of the smoothest vises I have ever used. The price tag on one of these ranges from $75-$200 (obviously used) depending on condition. I paid about $130 for my Yost, and I like it. However, there is NO comparison between the Yost and the FPU. They are in totally different leagues. The Yost is a good functional vise. The FPU is also a good functional vise that's more substantial, more precise...more expensive feeling....hence, the title to this video.

The image of Doug DeMuro makes a cameo in this video to give a Doug Score...( please don't sue me Doug....Buddy!) Not sure who he is? Love cars, or just great YouTube content?

And most importantly....Thanks For Watching!
