Post you old iron. Or your new steel!

Here is the home shop (garage) vise. Upgraded from the little orange one to this big Rock Island 596 (6" jaws, around 1940, around 105 lbs).

Comments welcome, or reply with your vise!

Here is another one. This one is a Chas Parker 4". I think Parker makes one of the best vises ever produced (hate me if you want, but I think they're much better made than Wiltons). 

Don't mind that an employee threw an RF sticker on it. It's in the production shop, what do you expect :/

This one had a bronze bushing installed in the front and was cleaned up before being put into service. Runs smooth,  jaws line up, and it just had its 100th birthday (I think).
