Yeah its possible. I just got a text today from the guy that bought my copper bullet. Said hes very pleased with it and it looks great. That kinda makes me feel good and makes the extra time i took worth it knowing someone appreciates it.

Am i weird for liking vises so much? Its just a large simplistic tool. Guess im just a bit whacko for enjoying these large chunks of steel so much. Not too many people can appreciate them until their chinese vise breaks in half and then wonder why😕

I appreciate it because it was real craftsman that made them and were proud that they made them!!!! I look at my vise and wonder where it came from and what type of people used it before I got it.

Remember that 5 1/2" craftsman i picked up cor $40?? A guy just drove 90 miles to my house and gave me $100 for it. These older gents know about USA made vises. The gent that just bought this craftsman said he just broke his Morgan 130 vise and he needed another. Lord knows how old that Morgan vise was.

Man that sucks he broke that Morgan cause no telling how old that one was. Yea there's a night and day difference between China iron ore and American iron ore. I had some big beams that was from an old fueling tower on the farm from when we tore it down. Well the beams was close to the road and had big rivets from when it was assembled and many people stopped and offered money for them All the time. Then one day an old man stopped and asked if he could look at them. He said you mind if a cut a small piece and make a small weld? I said sure go ahead. After he did that he offered me double to what anyone else did. He said you just don't see steel like this anymore. He said you see how smooth it cut and how good it welded? I said yes. He said that's as close to 100% iron you will ever see. So I guess them old timers know a thing or two.

Dude all I have to say is you are extremely lucky to live in an area rich in machinist history. You never see the deals you do as often as you down here. I'd probably have a wall full of vises if I lived there!!!!

The bullets are always harder to find a deal on but theyre were so many factories producing vises in ohio that finding old usa vises aint a problem. Old columbians are easy to find around here as well as desmond simplex.
