    Score! Heavy Iron; The search for the Quick release nut

    Spotted 'a' $20 vise on craigslist last night. So I got a call back from the gent, and he actually has 4 vices... quick phone calls to Grizz and Mark, and sure they'll look at them for $20 each if they're available. so We wound up with these:

    two Wiltons and a Marshall. I'm leaning toward the Marshall myself, only because it has a working quick release, and the wiltons need a little work, but since none of us are about to actually Build our Woodworker's bench, I figure we have good bones to work with...


    ok,
    I'm striking out on Google, let me go get better pics

    Those definitly have potential. Nice score.

    better photos of my vise:







    little bit of surface rust, plus some 'vintage' sawdust. These came out of the local BOCES (county wide vo-tech schools) who shut down a shop.

    the Wiltons are identical, but I'm wondering if something was missing from them:

    I can't find any markings or model #s on them, other than this:

    Man you suck big time! I would have broke his hand putting the money in it! I am still looking for one like that. I have a small Columbia that is fine, but not as heavy as I would like. Depending on the time of the year, they bring upwards of $100 on EBay. EACH!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Great score Ned. You are definitely a good friend for thinking of others during a time of emotional stress!
    I'd say you did very well!

    Wes - who still needs to install his vises. (or get rid of a few other vices to make time for the vises.)

    I never would have heard the end of it...

    if he only had One, that'd be one thing, but 4? now I wish I'd nabbed that last one when I was there.

    Hey Ned,
    You know, just like clamps, you can never have enough vices.
    Don't believe everything you think!

    I've got another vise in storage right now, but this one will wind up getting restored a bit and then proudly mounted in my new bench. Might even make me build a woodworking bench mark II (mark I was in the old shop, and was a super dust and clutter collector) :
