For Sale
Desmond Stephan Simplex 81P Vise

It is huge and heavy with 8" jaws.
Includes stand.

There were some repairs performed as you can see and the vise has been
welded on to a thick piece of steel that is in similar shape of the
vise base. Looks to be a very good and solid repair. Came out of an
aerospace company here in San Antonio that did a lot of contract work
for the military.

I have never removed it from the stand but the bolts holding it on do
turn and the base of the vise is not welded on to the stand.

$600 OBO
