Charles Parker Swivel Base Huge Vise 5.5" Jaws, 30" long, 148 lbs! This is a beautiful and rare Parker 269x. This massive vice weighs 148 pounds! But once it's mounted, it swivels smoothly and opens and closes like butter, with a respectable amount of backlash. I'll happily take closeup detailed pictures of any part of the vice if you want so just ask!There are no cracks in the body or anything like that, but the one jaw is missing a rivet (pictured in the photo with the ruler showing its width) and the handle has obviously been modified. The adjustment wrench is original and in wonderful condition with the writing perfectly clear (I have detailed pictures of that, but it was tough to chose the best 12).
Capturing this things size was also difficult, but you can see that it 14" tall and nearly the same width while being a massive +/- 30" long when extended. Lastly, I have been using this vice regularly in my shop for the past year and it functions great as it is, but its just to big for me and I think that someone else would make more use out of it, or restore it and add it to a collection because it is definitely rare and eye-catching.I have never seen another 269x.
