What should I be looking for when I go in to look at these craigslist finds? It appears he’s looking $60-100 each but as you can tell from the photo they all need considerable work. I’m more interested in the the one that’s buried under the top vise. Looks like the one on top retailed for $200 brand new. Would a 10” jaw work for a tail viaw on a 30” table?

Sorry this got missed, any luck picking them up? Price seems a bit high for what I see around me, but might not be for your area.

They all appear a bit rusty. I see at least half a day or more to clean any one of them up and service it. Not sure the one of top of the other has all it’s parts. I gave $15 for a 10” Craftsman with quick release. It just needed a good clean and lube on threads. Those might be worth trying to bargain for a little I would think. Maybe $35 for a fix-er-up-er ‘cause you will need to put some time and elbow grease in to it. Just my opinion of course.
