  1. The lower one in the picture is a Columbian vise , the other one I need to see more pictures from all angles .still might not be able to Id it.
  2. I have an older vise with a bronze or brass screwbox on it . I’ve seen 2or 3 more of these
  3. That’s a fine anvil, great deal on it. My congratulations

    Wagon Tongue Vise

    I like this vise . I want some of this type to add to my vise collection.
  5. I made a stand that the ends of the anvil are clamped in with wood and the entire bottom is embedded into contstruction adhesive. Killed the ring and is completely fixed in place.
  6. This is one of mine that is moveable, it works great for me
  7. My mouse hole anvil was bought by my grandpa, went to my dad then to me . It was over a hundred years old before grandpa got it and I will most likely leave it to my grandson . It barely looks used but has much done on it. With proper use it should last many lifetimes.

    Post vise pick-up

    Looks good ,not a bad price for this one. Have fun and use it to make something nice.
  9. I’ve got the same model columbian vise , I bought it To go with all the columbian postvises I’ve collected.
  10. I used construction adhesive put on about 1/2 inch thick, let it start to cure some then set the anvil in it without messing with it for a couple of days ,no rocking and turned the ringing of the anvil into a thud.
  11. 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?

    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!

    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.
  14. 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.

    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.
