    If I didn't already have 4 vises on my bench and a vise screw waiting to be built into a leg vise I would be grabbing this!

      Cheers Darrell - the closest thing on Lee Valley is $259 and neither its QR action not the metalurgy of the castings would come close to this one. Certainly no bronze bushings on the QR ....

        Beautiful vise. I love mine. From the little bit of research I have found and your picture, I would say yours was built in the original Richards-Wilcox factory in Aurora, Illinois that was founded in 1880. Mine is the 1913 version built right here in London, Ontario from the new Canadian factory built in 1912. Interesting history and yes they work flawlessly. Good Luck with the sale. Someone will be lucky to have it.

            I have that model vise! Picked it out of a junk pile a friend was getting rid of, he found it in his basement, left by the previous owners years ago. Cleaned it up and it works great.

              I have the model 430x2 that was given to me by my boss when he moved. I have yet to set it up. I want to build a new bench for it.
