Got really lucky on Kijiji found a record #52 vise, a record 3-SB swivel base and 2 – A151 spokeshaves, one wi

th a flat base and the other with a curved base. All for the low price of $120.00
When I got home and looked at the spokeshaves I thought maybe they were record irwin but after disassembling them I found the magic stamp ” Made in England ” I think the Record vise which were made in Sheffield England are the best you can get.

In the immortal words of those of us who missed out on this ” You suck.” Great finds, and now I guess you
will have to build a workbench to show of these vises and produce something with those spokeshaves.
Thank you for sharing and making us wish we could have gotten there first.

I’ve seen those #52 vises, in rough condition, sell for $175 on ebay.
You got a fine deal. I have a soft spot for marples/record tools. I buy them whenever I find them at good prices, whether I need them or not.
