close to bonney but my guess is blueline.

i have seen punches, chisels and bars marked nasa. almost always in some sort of surplus or traveling tool show type place. i have no idea who made them but they have all been a dark unfinished or blued type of metal.  they have always been touted as usa made but never say made in usa on them.
I remember a few threads on GJ about tools that are marked "NASA".  Entertainment value is pretty good on this one....

I buy and sell a lot of tools, vises included and buying a quality vise at $50 can be done, but it doesn't happen often.  They just don't come up that much and I go to a lot of sales.

Your point on them being broken is certainly correct and I agree they likely aren't worth $35 each to most people, but if they function, they can be sold for a little less.  And it is a CL ad so you know the guy put in a little wiggle room. 

I think what folks take exception to is your short responses.  They come across as terse and a bit arrogant.  Don't know if that is your intent, but that is my take.  And you come across as negative.  Just some food for thought.

Ok I will try to work on being less negative.

You could take it in and have it tested.

That's still a last resort right now.

Picked this LN 25 off of you-know-where last Friday after work. Extra 2 hrs of driving going home, but worth it to nab this for about what a 110v garbage freight unit goes for. A voltage sensing feeder sure beats running stick on bigger jobs out of the shop. Plus, it always seemed like if I needed dual shield, I have hard wire or flux core loaded (or vice versa), so this should fix that problem 50% of the time. These Pro models are a little funky, and I'd much prefer a Miller 12VS, but I'm cheap.

He will have a tough time finding that machine where I live for that money. First it is beautiful! Second, it is a SB! $ and third, it is quick change and tooled enough to get started. Around here not as pretty as that one but otherwise the same setup would be $1,500-2000.

Boy I would have loved to find that machine for that money!  droolx
