Hi, I have two old vises made of wood. I can no longer use these and being on SS I could use some extra money. Can someone give me an idea what a vise like this might be worth? They’ve been around a while and are dirty. The jaws are 12” x 6” and open to about 7 1/2”. The screws are 1” diameter and are 15” long 11” of which is threaded. There is also a threaded center stop rod. The action still feels smooth and strong. Thanks in advance for any help.

The highest price you could get for those would come from selling to non-woodworking, yuppie D.I.N.K.s looking to refresh their “modern-cottage-chic” interior design plan with some “charming, old-world objects”, IMHO. In the big-city ideal retail environment, I’d price those for $350. for the pair. Then “mark them down” to $265. with “summer antique clearance pricing ends July 10th” signage or something similar. Otherwise, you’ll be lucky to get $40. each for those on Craigslist I would think.
