I had purchased a used 4" vise a while back. Dummy me didn't look to see how worn the threads were. I soon stripped it. So I was cruising CL and found a new-in-the-box 4" Sears vise for $40. At sears they are $49.99. Figured I could save $10 plus tax to get this one. Here's a link to it. Should handle things for a while.

I have been watching for one. I missed a great Wilton, but you can't win them all.

That is not a bad looking vise! I noticed, it has a big 5 on the side, but is a 4 inch vise?

about a year ago my uncle gave me this vise. It sat on the floor for a month or two then I finally bolted it to the bench. It does not rotate or anything, only holds... kinda.

I'm in need of a new one for my workbench. I used to the industrial strength vises that we have at work and the 5" Craftsman that I bought 3 years ago has all but given up the ghost. It still holds OK, but I fear not for long :blush2:

Ryan313,
What kind of vise is that? It looks a lot like mine except for the screw out the back. Mine has the rectangle shaft going all the way out the back. I just do not remember the make and model. I know mine has been abused for at least 40 years by my dad and I both. he gave it to me when he retired and moved. A great industrial strength unit.

Nice find Kenny.I hope it serves you well and holds up to your uses.

Purchased a rotating vice for work and liked it so much that over the years I have purchased two more for myself. A five and a six.

Kenny if it is the threaded shaft that is stripped on your vice you can purchase Acme threads and nuts from Enco. That is what most of the vices I've seen use.

It's about 10 miles away. I'll pick it up this morning.

The shaft is okay, it's the piece the shaft screws in to. It's an older Craftsman, but haven't found a parts break down for it.

I have the red version of that craftsman vice for many years. I ended up welding the swivel base of it fast because it kept trying to turn when I didn't want it to. Still have it, though it needed welded once more. I just picked up a really old Prentiss vice from my brother. Thing is HD.

A couple yrs ago I decided I needed a vice and was in Lowes. They had a 6" Kobalt for $59 so I bought it and have been more than pleased. It's one of those things that will tick you off, to think you went all those years without.
Now with woodworking vises and so forth I have 6 vises and will never be without again!

I went and got it. Not as heavy as I thought, but will still work. Also, I looked at the threaded piece inside and I think this might work in my old one that is a bit heavier. If I can get parts for the new one, I may order one of them,

New in the box!

I also picked an air brad/stapler. I have a bunch of staples that will work in it, 1/4" crown X 1-3/8".

my grandfather put it on a old cream seperator stand,
