I just had a bunch of stuff given to me. Mostly end mills, drills, slotters, right and left hand carbide bits, and a couple of sacks of carbide inserts. Much of it is new and still coated in rubber. But I also got an oiled vacuum pump, a couple of small machinist vises, an old massive Wilton vise, and a 24"x36" granite slab. Anyone recognize the vise pictured below? It has no markings aside from a "0" and a couple of "G"s stamped on the bottom. It's 4.5".

By golly, both pictures and a "You Suck". A legitimate, official gloat within a half hour. A new record?

Sorry to say I don't have any insight on the vise.

edit to add: Bah! Spoke too soon. Only pictures of the vise and a surface plate. Many pictures yet to come I guess. The old record still stands (whatever that might have been).

Free tools! Great I'll take them. I will even pay the shipping to me. Thank you. That was very generous of you.

Funny! Only thing I think I could get for free is Herpes and crabs and I don't want them! Glad someone is lucky! Fred

Needlenose, where are you located. I'd sure like the granite, but it would need to be fairly close by.

I think we should change the official "you suck" rules. It did not happen without
#1 Pictures ( fulfilled in this instance)
#2 Donating something from the pile to someone else, I volunteer to receive. :)
#3 You Suck

I would guess the vise is hand made.

The old Wilton vise by itself would've been quite the gloat. Congrats!

Sorry, I'm a looooooong way from Kentucky. :)

It's amazing how heavy that thing is.

I would guess the vise is hand made.

I wondered about this as well. Surely any manufacture would put *something* on their product. The vise did come out of a box containing lots of custom single purpose fixtures that were all numbered. It was all very high quality stuff; very well made.

The odd thing about the vise, besides not having any identifying marks, is that the vise is set on a dovetail base with a screw to move it back and forth. The screw is flattened and centered-drilled on both ends. I can see no way to turn it.

Well I had to check. Figured the worst answer would be "too far".

...and at the bottom of one of the boxes. :-)

I think the 20X is missing the clutch stop. Has anyone used these? Do they work well?

I sold one of those on ePay earlier this year - no reserve, not knowing if it even worked for $127. You got a sweet deal ! :cool:
