Yep. I looked up that vise a few years ago then they sent me a price list, after the Wilton contest. I think it was listed then at $3800.
I'm pretty sure that is a cast steel vise rather than cast iron.
You have everything you need to make your own jaw inserts, or to repair the ones that came with it.

"Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life. Thus people haunted by the purposelessness of their lives try to find a new content not only by dedicating themselves to a holy cause but also by nursing a fanatical grievance. A mass movement offers them unlimited opportunities for both."
