  1. Just use it horn to the right and you are good to go. That cut won't bother a thing.
  2. Thanks Alan did not think of that!!
  3. What is this?? Found on an old farmstead in Nebraska, my thoughts are a potato digger or chaff cutter. It is missing a wood handle. edge is sharp. All forge welded together.
  4. Nice, if you need cheap stock come my way sometime and we have a couple great scrap yards that still let you dig. Everything goes out at $.20 a pound.
  5. Do they have a new home, if they want one I have space. I can even keep them as a family!!!

    Cast Iron Post Vise?

    I have 4 or 5 like that. I think they are Eco line columbians.
  7. To add to why the key rings bottle openers hooks ...... Because they sell in any market and your practice is with lot cheaper material. Plus most of the hammering skill are in the decor items. Did I mention they sell... Good way to gain some extra $$$
  8. The person that comes in thinking they know all and they really don't know anything. Which leads to the cures of working alone. Then it is all my doing and I am the only one that could get hurt. Take the time for prep work has been drilled into my head so much that you can pre tell the oh crap moments. Or the why did you have to redo that after you got the stitches. Take the time for prep and thinking it really does help things go better and faster.
  9. What do you have planned for the 4 corner receivers?? Tool tray?? Vise??
  10. Mine are always yellow and black striped
  11. Holes are square when you use a carriage bolt also. Well in part of the hole anyway. Could be either and you could use it for either. Have fun with it!!

    Vise stand mod

    Saltforks sells that swage block. Very reasonable.
  13. Would need pics of it to tell you. Could be old mousehole anvils with no pritchel were older ones. Don't know without seeing it.

    Vise stand mod

    I took the idea from the saltforks craftsmen. Holds my small swage block and has multiple hardy holes screen shots from my Instagram page.
  15. My thought is a die for sockets for tools that have a wood handle.
  16. About all I can tell you is it is pre 1910. After 1910 all were stamped with England.
  17. I think I have a little bigger silver I will check and if I do I will get pics and make a pattern for you.
  18. You asked, he answered, the vise looks like a columbian knockoff. The other thing is the screw may not be origanal to the rest of the vise parts
  19. It was not made in America, it is a pre 1910 Peter Wright. The TTT3 is hundred weight. They are not T but 1. So it is 1 1 13. The England was put on after 1910.
