Looking For A Vise...


Any of you guys have a Vise you'd want to get rid of?
Looking for a 5" vise and anything older would be better.

Thanks.
I have been hitting Craigslist a lot lately Jet,
but it seems that we're all dried up locally.

I did however manage to snag this Littlestown 400 for $23.54 on eBay.
It's valued at about 3X that much right now. The Athols & Reeds are
hard to find and the Wiltons are priced through the roof right now,
but they are worth it. The Littlestown will be my first vise and I'll
upgrade to a 6" later on.

Sure, you'll find some for 5 or 10 bucks from someone at a garage
or yard sale that doesn't know what they have, but I couldn't wait
anymore and it's still a great deal. Most important part is that I get
to working on my axes.

NICE!
Got mine in a few days ago.
I just played with it yesterday.
Everything seems to be in order.
Going to dismantle it, clean it up,
and grease it.
