operation of rotating vise

Question:
I have an older bench vise with rotating jaws (model 299-V-1). It has been a long time since I have had the opportunity to use. I do not remember how to rotate the jaws and I have no manual. Can you explain or send written instruction Thanks Greg Dales PO Box 4207 Georgetown, CA. 95634 530-957-8856
Answer:
Hello Greg-Your unit is abourt 20 years 9ld and being made of cast iron, may have rusted to the point that the rust is restricting movement. It should rotate without any difficulty as the rotation would stop when under load but otherwise, siome WD 40 to loooenb it should do the trick and there was no instruction manual sold with the units when new. 
Thanks for asking,
Carl
