Nice. I love mine - is that yours to keep or are you mending it for someone?

Nice one. Mine is much older than yours, it has brass whitworth bolts holding the jaws on. I am impressed with how little spring there is in it when clamping. One small bump on the handle and it's got a great grip on whatever you're holding.

Highly speculative price. These two (that did sell) are right on the money IMO:

The first one is similar to mine but mine has no anvil.

but did you notice its for collectors/vintage so gee whiz its worth double that.  :lol: What a wanker

There's a lot of that going on, seems anything "industrial" that'll look good in a banker's loft is worth a bloody fortune!

What I hate seeing is "vintage industrial table - conversation piece" made from a pair of lathe stands, when you can bet the lathe on top went into the scrapper's bin...

Oh, nice vice, BTW :)

Looked at the video, seems like something that can actually be fabricated. Looked fun. =)
