Columbian Cat No. 143 Bench Vise made by "The Col. Hdw. Co. Cleveland O [Yes, the small frame ones lacked room for the H on the casting!] U.S.A." 3inch Jaw, 4inch-plus opening. Dates roughly from the 1950s.

I'm coding it as GOOD condition and not EXCELLENT, but I'd rate it VERY GOOD. 2" by 2" Anvil face, no "horn" and 4" round base with dovetail for mounting on a Columbian swivel base (not included).

Used and NOT abused; the removable jaw inserts aren't all torn up, screw heads good. No welding spatter and a very few shallow chisel gouges. Some eBay ones are so scarred as to be a real mess.

The screw-drive is in excellent shape; overall this shows little if any signs of hard use.

Cash only please. I usually only see email M-F mornings so please be patient when responding.
