FISHER Vise catalog page/price list

Recommended Posts

Sales page from a hardware store catalog from the 1880's.   There is a mistake:  The #6 vise weight should read either 180 or 200 lb.  Note the price.  These were not cheap for that era.

Hmm using an inflation calculator that unfortunately only goes to 1913 that $30 would be work around $717 today!

A "parallel chain vise" isn't what we typically think of a leg vise is it? Didn't someone on IFI post pics of one looking to ID it a while back?

Frosty:  Look at the thread on #1 Fisher Chain Vise.  That will show you what these look like.

 

Here are three more:  These are all #2 Fisher Double Screw (chain) vises.  There are slight design differences between them.  That will be discussed in a separate post.
