  1. Swage block stand

    Very nice , I wish I had a swage block , then I would want a stand like that . Good build, have fun using it. One question. How do you turn the block?
  2. Double screw vise

    Old combine or hay machines have that type of chain. Good luck I would love to get my hands on one of those!
  3. My newest vise

    Here’s my new outside table and later build Columbia post vise , the spring isn’t correct and the leg is cut, but it was free so I can’t complain. I seem to attract Columbia post uses these days.
  4. 4 1/2" leg vice

    I guess 1800s. The ones made later,1900s have unbeveled legs and the mount is more simple. As stated before the screwbox, and mount could be from another vise which is common.
  5. Columbian?

    This looks like an later model Colombian. The unbeveled legs ,the flat pivot plate, the screwbox is open and short. All describes a newer columbian vise.
  6. How did you find your first anvil?

    My first on was my grandfathers anvil, 1835 mouse hole, my second I bought from a friend of the family’s, a Sisco supreme.
  7. 7" Indian Chief vise

    Beautiful vise, nice score .
  8. Swedish mystery

    To the left of the made in Sweden Mark it looks like the bottom of the oval that’s on my sisco supreme,and the font of the weight stamp is the same as mine. I’ll get a picture
  9. 4 1/2" leg vice

    I agree with Thomas, looks like a Columbian the pivot plate, screwbox, and overall shape is an earlier columbian . The latter ones straight sided lower jaw arms.
  10. Big ol post vise

    I’ve got an indian chief that looks like it’s twin . Clean it up you may find some markings on it to id it.
  11. Preventing equipment sweat

    I live in the Deep South , we don’t have humidity,it’s just plain wet! I use wd 40 on all my tools and anvils, it works well.
  12. Prayers needed for Dad please

    My prayers for your dad . My dad has been in the hospital we thought it was cancer ,got the news today that it wasn’t.
  13. Show me your anvil

    Either way, use in good health and have fun! Nice anvil!
  14. I’m a history nut ,I’ve got 2 blacksmiths in my family history , sorry ancestors, I’m not doing great work . I’m an electronics repair tech to pay the bills , just do this for my therapy of dealing with idiots all day, I can only hope and try to be a tenth as good as some of you guys.
  15. rear thrust washer-repair or replace

    Just weld it up , if you like. I have several postvises some are missing washers it just makes tightening and loosening a little harder, but it’s still useable.
