Hi there, I just got my wilton 1760 out after being in divorce sotrage(thank god i didnt lose it). I am wondering when this model vise was produced. Any thoughts? Thank you, Dan

If you remove the slide all the way and flip it over you’ll find a date stamped into the key that shows when your vise was released for sale. I don’t know what year Wilton started selling the 1760, but it was probably around 1990 and they switched to the 1765 in 1998…that’s a rough guideline. Thanks for the note!
