I usually just use Amsoil GLC (red) since it's in my grease gun. Really any quality grease should work fine.

I also put some grease on the bottom of the slides.

Thats a good old vise!
I would grease the threads, wire brush it down and rub it with oil. Good for another 75 years.

I don't know if i would clean it up much with a wire brush. There is something about the patina that is there from your grandfather. I might wipe it down with a light oil and lube it well all over but if it were my grandfathers vise i would not wire brush it.

What a great vice with family history too! I would clean and lube it but not paint or try to "improve" it. Your great great grandfather created some of those dents building and fixing stuff over a century ago. Too cool. thumbsup
