    Hey guys.

    So during my usual/obsessive perusing of cl, I came upon a big old vise - I've never seen one quite like it before. I thought it was interesting; also, it might be useful for guitar builders (bookmatching bodies or tops? Any other ideas?). Decent price, too, for a big chunk of old iron. Thought you might like to see it.

    $100.00 not bad I was thinking of a way to set broken bones with it you could pick up some extra scratch on the weekends.
     
  3. Hi.

    $100 is a decent price, especially for one that clean.
    I'd say it's never been used for its intended application.

    The ratchet type sliding jaw is also a real bonus if You have different thicknesses of stock to cut.
    Speeds things up considerably.

    Congrats on the find.

    Regards
