That is the number 1 vise for me, hands down. I have had a few in the past and the price you are asking is a huge deal for someone, hopefully you’ll sell it quickly. What would it cost to ship to Florida, just asking.

I agree that that is a very good price. For transport, you might want to see if any sites like can offer you what is called “ruckering”. I am in upstate NY and sold an Emmetsburg to a guy in Va. A few years ago. Found a guy that was going that way and he hauled it down to Virginia for me for almost nothing.
