Like the title says – think this is a good, OK or pricey deal? The ad says the 4×10 Jorgensen vise is unused.

$100 is what a brand new cost me 6 years ago. Looks unused, by looking at the wood arm – still to much. Lee Valley looks better.

The rust isn’t much of an issue. Make an offer.

A few weeks ago I bought a 7-inch Jorgensen vise that is very similar for about $120. Look at my projects page if you want to see a photo.
