    bench vise surprise

    A friend of mine own a flea market shop. Recently he had a pretty ordinary looking old bench vice in there. But, it had the name Rock Island cast on it. His asking price was $125.00. I offered the opinion that that was a pretty high price. He said it was collectors item. Next day he got full price without dickering. Apparently, they were used, with an adapter, to hold M1 Garand rifles for assembly and are true collectors items. Who wooda thunk it? If I had a clue, I would have taken a picture.

    That sound pretty cool Frank. I'd be afraid of buying it and starting to make M1s.
