Picked this vise up a few weeks ago at a garage sale with the unrealistic hope of finding a use for it. I already have a good vise so it is just taking up valuable space in my shop. If there are any new woodworkers in the San Diego area in need of a quality bench vise send me a message, it’s yours if you want it.

Gents,

I’m going to give it a few days to see if anybody local wants the vise. If it doesn’t get claimed then I’ll start checking shipping prices.

Awesome that you’re paying it forward!

I always give away my old tools. It just makes me feel good to know that I can help someone out. I just gave my neighbors a nice craftsman 18v circ saw / drill combo after their drill stopped working.
