Medium Duty Yost 8" steel vise on sale at Woot - $89.99
« on: December 12, 2016, 10:23:17 AM »
It's not a professional grade vise, but the price is very good for an 8" home-owner/small shop vise.

Shipping is also VERY reasonable on this product --

I have lots of Vintage USA made vises that I will sell. What size are you looking for?
Shipping costs are not cheap because of weight of the largeer ones.

That picture, and the 8" description don't align in my head. Sure seems like a 5" vise with an 8" opening, but what do I know.

(edit)....hmmm....I am yet again, wrong wrong wrong!  I googled the part number  :)

Old news, but something is very odd with that deal - it is advertised as a "cast steel USA"  for $89.  I worked in a steel foundry and we couldn't have made that vise for $89 cost and sell was normally 3X cost by the time it got to the retail customer.

It's not, it's grey cast iron with a steel slide.
