Does anyone actually "need" 50 vises? (With the four I acquired this week, I'm getting pretty close to 50!) :roll:
Of the four I aquired this week two are in that photo, the upper right and lower left.
Upper right is the real prize, made in USSR, an unusual design, lightly used, and $20, it's going in my tool roll in the Gear Up or Dnepr.
Lower left was $2, how could I pass it up?
Bottom row center is marked "USN" and "Made In USA", it came with a piece of military equipment I used to own.
God bless whoever gets to clean up my mess.

Happy trails,

"Pound" before it was renamed the on-line command-line for Hashtag?
For us of the older persuasion, the latest trend of hashtag Me Too is said "pound me too".
Appropriate?
