Weather was into the 50s, around here.....van was at work, no cash in the pocket.....might as well do a walk about, and see what is in the two local antique stores, downtown.....Walking across a street,,twisted the knee a bit....ow!

Finally made it to one of the stores....on the way around to a stall, noticed this gray thing

Apparently the first place/booth was trying to cover booth  rental on every sale???

Of course since everything is "vintage" the price goes up...

You did exactly what I would have done...kept walking...

Hope the knee is feeling better.

225 for that workbench! That is one heck of a deal, look at the vise on that bench! Looks like an old Columbian to me, if it is, that Columbian is worth the 225 all alone. Take the vise off it, it's still worth 225, that was a real bench. If I was there, and had 225 to burn, I'd of snatched it right up. But I aint there, and I typically don't have 225 to burn, so it's all just smoke and mirrors aint it!

But that bench, nice bench.

You've gotta be joshing. I gotta go look but I think that's the same vise on my bench. It came in a box of other old stuff I bought for $15.

Ya never know Gene! Of course I cannot tell by the picture, but it's looks like an early style Colombian, but there are literally thousands of "knock off's" for that venerable vise company.

Phooy. I checked. It's just a Wilton. 

Just as good if not better. Wilton's are very good quality vises. My 6", on the general workbench, is a Wilton and I am always on the lookout for them at a reasonable price. I did get a Colombian last year for $10 but it isn't a quick release.

In my area that the kind of tools you find in the junkyard every week. 

Including the vise.... That's why my barn is full....

Kevin, here on the west coast, it's really slim picking, I am very envious of the mid west folks and east coasters, I am not sure where you are at, just assuming, if you are finding tools like you state, you can't be here in the west! :)
