  1. Got these today at a sale. First up is a foot vise. Patent date April 28, 1898 Manufactured by H J Boyce, Fayette, Ohio. 5-inch jaws Second Vise is post vise, maybe. The leg is missing, but there is a threaded hole into the vise where the leg would go. Not sure if it may have been bolted to something rather than having a post. One side has “6LV2” on one leg and “6LV5” and the other side has “JB” on both legs. It has 6-inch jaws. Just trying to learn more about them. Want to both to good use. Thanks in advance for any information.
  2. What is this?

    Was in the pile of metal I bought at auction yesterday. It’s about a foot long, 1-1/2 thick and 3 inches wide. When you pull the “trigger” a section on the inside pulls back about about. Quarter of an inch - obviously just to hold something.

    Moving on, but still staying flat, I got this 6 pound flatter for $15 yesterday. Any thoughts on what they were doing with it to mushroom the head that badly? It’s marked with the initials ETW whoever he was u

    With springs like that, the odds are stacked against him - but I know he is hopeful that they will work And that gentleman, proves hope springs eternal.

    the checking is really dependent on the speed of drying. That’s why ends are sealed to slow the process. I have seen checks run the entire length and be seen from the outside, but I don’t remember any checks that ran the length on the inside and couldn’t be seen externally. I have seen overlapping short checks that did go the length i appreciate the flat rate offe! Thank you
