  1. Thank you frosty. Your answer provides clarity and I'll file it away (sorry, I couldn't resist, Frosty)
  2. Daswulf, sent you an email with a couple of examples. I have seen two styles of clamping - obviously this vise is like the bottom one.
  3. Thanks! I'll give 'er a go. Daswulf, I'll send pictures of the complete one I have that will show you what it should look like.
  4. I just got this wagon vise that someone welded a piece of channel to the bottom. While it allows it to stand on the floor by itself so it's easy to store, I would rather put the vise back into the shape it should be (as best I can). I have another wagon vise to copy the bottom strap from. As you can see, the weld is on the threads. I plan on removing this channel and making a more accurate retaining strap for the vise. My question is this - I know that I can just cut off the section of thread with the weld and make a retaining strap that came up to that level, but I'd rather not if it could be avoided. Any thoughts on how I might remove this and minimize damage to the threaded section? I know I can cut it off using a dremel around the post, but am left with the weld on the threads. Maybe grind it to the diameter of the threads, then rethread it? Just looking for suggestions to try. I thank everyone in advance for their help.
  5. Maybe a file designed to be used in a die filer. I will hug him and squeeze him and name him George.
  6. Those are cape chisels. If you look in the dictionary: Definition of cape chisel. : a cold chisel that has a long taper on the top and bottom of the cutting end and a narrow edge and is used for cutting keyways and similar flat grooves.
  7. I'll get photos up when I get it, but curious about date of production. Serial Number is 102352, so maybe 1910? Believe it to be around 115# The face is 3-1/2 by 15-1/2 inches. Brother found it and said it has a good rebound.
  8. From the back, that's just its twin tails wagging in circles!
  9. Every needs a few vises.....and that's a nice one!
  10. On the list.....thoughts and prayers on the way
  11. Shape plays a role due to air resistance (drag) - Mythbusters demonstrated that a penny dropped the distance of the Empire State Building only achieved a maximum of 64.4 mph. However, dropped in a vacuum, it would go much faster. Skydivers falling with the bodies parallel with the ground are maxed out at around 125 mph or so - but if they go headfirst, they can get up to around 200 mph or so. There are competition skydivers who have reached up to 330 mph wearing the right aerodynamic stuff......the fastest skydiver was that guy that dove from 128,000 feet to break Kittinger's record. Somewhere up in the thin atmosphere, he reached a speed of 833.9 mph, because of little air resistance. He was the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall - they calculated it at Mach 1.24. However, as the free fall continued, as the air got thicker, he slowed down.
  12. Thank you, FrozenForge. I have seen ones with the letters on the other side of trademark, but the trademark has always been on the left. The one I saw today had the trademark on the right where the letters normally are.
  13. A guy at work today showed me a picture of what looks like a Colombian Anvil (it has the triangle with the C) that he is buying. I have two questions for this group about it. More about my curiousity than anything else. 1) the Columbia logo (triangle with the C) is on the right side of the anvil when looking down the length of the anvil towards the horn. I have seen 8 other Colombians, and I looked at a bunch of photos on the 'net, and the triangle logo was always on the left side. Has anyone else seen a Colombian with the triangle logo on the right? I did see some anvils with a simple letter "C" on the right, but all the ones with the triangle logo with the C in the center had it on the left. 2) The anvil looks like it has an approximately 1/2-3/4 inch faceplate on it. Again, based on what I've seen both in person and on the 'net, it looks like some Colombians appear solid and others appear to have a faceplate. Is it actually a faceplate or did Colombian only finish that much of the casting smooth? Thanks for any responses..
  14. Maybe the knife is well balanced.....
  15. Lee Sauder, Steve Mankowski, and Shel Browder are working on a sequel to "Ore to Axe" about how to make the steel they used. They realized that story needed to be told as well. I'm not sure what stage it is in right now, because I haven't talked to them in a bit. Ore to Axe is interesting to watch. Can't wait to see how to make steel!
