I have a Stanley vise that appears to be a vise used for picture frame building. I know that there are alot of collectors on this site and if someone wants this vise for free I would be happy to give it to them. All I ask is that you pay for the shipping and it is yours. I just hate to throw it away when I know that someone will either use it or restore and display it. Just shoot me an email if you are interested and we can work out the details. Thanks Ron, Here are a couple of pictures of the vise to give you an idea what it is, and what it looks like.

-- I just don't understand. I have cut it 3 times and it is still to short.

Oh, BUBBY, you are Da’ Man!!!

I love it, and I’m so totally inspired to make picture frames! ( will post one here for sure, with vise in use! ) You’re a true credit to LJs, and I’ll pay it forward. Thanks again!

Thanks, Dave. It’s Bubby’s generosity I benefitted from – he’s too kind. This vise Will Get Used, I guarantee it…

Okay, the vise is in action (limited, at present, but action nonetheless) – here’s a simple square-jointed frame that I’ve had for a year or so, with the intent to ‘someday’ glue it together / repair it. Well, the #400 is just the ticket to pull this thing together square and tight:

Just enjoying the clamping finess of the Stanley 400, Mr. Dave. Nothing more. ;-)

Yep! You are one crafty feller. Mine is certainly not a Stanley, but when I put it to use, ain’t nothin’ like it for the 3rd or 4th hand.
Cherish your haul ‘cause ya ain’t gonna find one elsewhere for that price.
Uhhhh? When ya get through with that frame can I have the vice? :)))
