      It sounds like you're interested in selling the tristand. I'm sure Rick will be interested in buying it since he's stocking up to build a Ridgid museum in California.

        it could be the old cast iron tri-stand. i have the oldest one know to exist already

        problem is it's missing the legs

            I think you may have found your legs Rick. Looks like the same tristand to me...

              I have one just like this, except mine has been sandblasted and repainted. I still use it once and a while.

                So do I. Mine's not as rusty as Nannah's, but it definitely could use a tune up.

                    Unless someone wants it for antique value it's pretty much a boat anchor.

                      In my area every once in a while I'll see a tristand in good condition for $75.00.This is the chain type vise which myself and many of my plumber friends prefer.The one pictured above is a yoke type vise.

                      You might have it for sale at the right place at the right time and some guy would just have to have it.

                          Funny you should say it.

                            the problem i see with that vise is the poor condition and rusted threads.

                            unless you can clean it up and paint it. the present condition is less than $50.00. maybe tool fanatic will offer more for the vintage look, but not for the real workhorse.
