As the title says, I'm curious to know what a good asking price would be for these two items. Thinking about selling them as I've had them for some time now and have never used either of them.

I could really use the money to help fund a project car I'm working on. Obviously I wouldn't be asking top dollar given the condition the items are in, just trying to see what a fair price would be.

First up is this banged up old Kurt 5" vise. This is the condition I got it in. All I did was give it a light cleaning and oil it a bit. Been sitting for months now.

Next up is a Tapmatic 50 TC/DC with one rubber flex collet. This is all I was given when I got it and I have literally never used it. 20180707_202543.jpg 20180707_202550.jpg

best bet would be ebay. I'd expect you'd get ~$200-250 for the vise on there, or $150 or so locally (no jaws and the divots will cause people to try and talk you down). Tapmatic I've no idea, $80-100 I'd expect.

I was thinking around the same for the vise. On the other hand, I did some browsing on Ebay for the Tapmatic. I'm seeing them for around $3-400. Might just put it up at $250 buy it now on Ebay.
