Antique 54 3/4" Wood Clamp (vice) w/ wood screw - $45.00 Pickup / Delivery

Probably 19th century. The all wood turn-screw is 7 3/4" long for a working depth of 5 ". It looks to be made of oak.
The body is hardwood (possibly maple) is 54 3/4". There are 2 rows of holes which allows pegging in 1 1/2" increments. As you can see from this photo, it's completely pegged together. I believe the only metal in the whole thing is a point sticking out of the end of the wooden screw thread presumably to stabilize the piece being clamped.

The shoe (jaw) and bottom peg are not original.
