I’ve just inherited a vice. In pretty good condition. It’s stamped Wadkin, and appears to have the original paint. It’s fairly substantial and will be a significant upgrade to my current vice.

You are one very lucky man!
That's a very rare pattern maker's vice, which turns on its head and does all sorts of clever tricks.

Ignore these fools. It's practically worthless. I'll give you £20 for it and I'm cutting my own throat at that price. 😍
And it's covered in water. Grrrrrrr. 😦
Dry it and at the least wd40 it. At the least.
