Default Anyone looking for vice?

Blacksmith post vice for $40. Just seen this on a buy sell trade Facebook site. Any interest from anyone here? I’m almost tempted just to resell. Click image for larger version

When I read the title I thought here we go down into gutter. I get a blacksmith VISE here for around $20. The highest I have seen here is $30. Must sell there for more than here.

I think I have seen them go $75- $100 at auction. I remember buying one couple years ago, because I thought it was going cheap, and I think I sold it before I left the auction. I have one already, one of these years I may get it set up. will probably have to do some cleanup on it since it has been stored outside.

I would happily pay $40 for one but Michigan is quite a drive.

I was considering trying marijuana, otherwise my current vices keep me plenty occupied.

$40 would be a give away price around this area. I gave $100 for my big one but it's considerably bigger and heavier than the one pictured.

When those leg vises show up on the local Craigslist--which is rarely--they usually go for around 250 bucks...

I had made an offer of $30. I got a reply back that she ended up selling it for $60. So it was a win for her, more than she was originally asking, and saved me a 45 mile one way trip for something I really didnt need another of.
