We have replaced all the Brass hardware with high quality 303 Stainless Steel. Stainless is a great medium to work with; it is stable, machines very well, and best of all, will never discolor or rust. Some people like the look of aged brass; they say it builds character into the vise. Some people want their tools to remain clean and bright. Suppose you are in the latter group, then the Norvise Legacy is the vise for you.
The purchase of a vise will include the standard Norvise with stainless steel hardware, the standard inline jaws, thread post, Allen wrenches, instructional DVD, and mounting hardware.
