  1. Salem I think those are rail ties not 4x6 timbers so maybe a bit bigger, I think you can see a couple spike holes and where the plate sat on the top rear tie. Chris Roberts
  2. Have you considered not having it make full rotations but using something to linearly actuate it where it would move up and then reverse to move down to show the movement of the helve. Then you could adjust the length of movement so the dies don't fully contact. Or stage a plow blade or something similar to show how it could have been used in a ag scenario. Chris
  3. http://davidlisch.com/swap.html Plan is I'll be there with a bunch of wagon wheel wrought iron and whatever other misc stuff I throw together. If you are there stop by and say hi. Chris Roberts
  4. Across the alley from the gas station on my way into work yesterday there was a pile of leftover yard sale kinda stuff with a free sign propped up against it. And what do I spy in the back corner but a 14" Dewalt metal chop saw on a steel stand. Cut off the mangled cord and threw a new end on the good section of cord and she turns right on! part of the adjuster on the back part of the vise is busted off but otherwise just weathered and faded. A chop saw was on the list to buy so this saves me a fair chunk of change and will make processing the wagon rims down to salable sizes f
  5. I'd incorporate the wrench in a final solution gives it character. chris

    Baby Wilton

    Ok since I am on vises tonight i just wanted to share my last purchase a baby Wilton and power arm jr rotating/swivel base. I love Wilton bullet vises and have wanted a baby for several years and I really think this setup with the power arm base will be super handy. And no I didn't pay full eBay prices. 2" jaws 7 " long these may be the only "cute" tools I own :) Chris

    Baby vise

    Here is mine I bought it for $1.26 all I had on me at the time.
  10. Well she weighs in about 155# not as big as I was hoping but I think it was still a ok deal. Here is a pic of the bottom and a U stamped under the heel.
  11. Just got home, looks like some one welded on the side where a name would be and the front feet for #s figures huh . And the heel was torched for those cut out shapes but doesn't seem worse off from a torch hitting it. The good is; face is flat, good thick face plate, great rebound, edge chipping isn't to bad. Bottom has a hourglass kinda impression with a handling hole in the center web. I'll get a weight and a couple other pictures after I eat. Thanks guys Chris.
  12. Going to look at this tonight no weight listed or manufacturer, what I do know approx 10.5 tall 30" long face 3.75 wide. So that puts it maybe 180-200lbs if those dimensions are close. Pretty chipped and the heel has been modified for Horse shoes(clips maybe)? if it is in that weight range it is priced around $2 per lb + or -. I have a decent 125lb anvil not looking other than why not have more anvils and the price is attractive. General opinions would be appreciated . Thanks Chris ok pics dont work from my PC I'll try the phone again
  13. Wilton 600 picture try again worked from phone but not pc go figure huh. Anvil was sold
  14. What drives me to travel 120 miles round trip for rusty iron? The fact that it is a Wilton 600 bullet vise on a steel and concrete stand for $100!!! also got a old craftsman floor drill press and some chicken processing items for the farm chris crap cant upload images ill try again later
