These are 4 of the more interesting ones out of 7 that I have mounted and use in various places around my basement and garage. I don't know a lot about them only that I never paid much for any of them. For example: the blacksmith's (post- No name that I can see) vise I got at a garage sale last summer for 3 bucks. I know it should have pretty good value but don't know how much. Can anyone shed light on any of these as far as value? Thanks.

I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

It's a small cheap vise I have had for years. Beat it to death and still keeps going...

I was going thru stuff in the garage this morning and found the same vise. It is made by Dunlap.

This was my dad's. Rescued it after their house burned many years ago. Still working like it should. Dad always preached to buy good tools and you would be money ahead in the long run.

Great restoration job, oneoldboot.
I like lettering color compared to 'white' lettering. Classy work.

MnMan, the post vise looks very similar to the one I have, but it has the two-pin type locking deal that attaches the vise to the table base. Mine is a Columbian of newer construction (1950's?). I paid $125 for mine.

I got this vice in on a trade for some weld repair. I know Pete restores these old vices, so I worked out a trade with him, and here is the final product. The craftsmanship in this vice is incredible.

Here's a cool Wilton I just finished. No before pics. This rotates 90 degrees so it can hold horizontal & vertical. Super cool! laugh

I may be selling this at the PTA D8 two weekends from now, but I am starting to like it. The jaws remove easily so wood inserts can be put in so your work isn't marred.

I have that same vise. It currently looks similar to your before picture. Hopefully, in the near future, it will look something like your after picture.


Eh...wot?

Picked up (and stole the picture) from the auction where I bought this step vise. It was made by Boyce in Ohio with a patent of 1886. I have only seen one other one in person and that was in a museum. I already have about 10-12 leg vises but this is the one I am most proud of. You step on the footpiece to close the jaws.

Thanks for the above posts. Never seen that Moose.

I have decided I am a "pipe vise guy." I haven't restored to many this summer, but got to the wilton and this one this weekend, interesting design.
