Charles Parker vise

Because it is broken probably you can get it for less than 50 USD...Use the broken bit as leverage for your negotiation. 

If you repair it I think it is a perfectly functional vice.

A big heavy duty American made vise of comparable size and quality would run you close to $1,000 new.

If you can use a vise that size and it checks out to work in other aspects it's a good deal.

Can I use it? You bet! Do I really need it...not so much. Haha. For what he wants for it and my needs, I might have to pass it up unfortunately. I already have a post vise or 2 that work great. This was going to be more of an impulse buy...

And what exactly is the number he is asking for the vice?

There are many a large old vise going on cl in my area anywhere from $50-300. And normally that is pretty fair but $550. for that one is too high being that it is broken. Even if it is usable.
