  1. These are the two patterns for the #4 Fisher double screw vise. The patterns are sitting in their carriers. When used, the half was rammed up using special dedicated flasks. Then the whole assembly was flipped over, the carrier removed, and the other special flask half was attached. The second half was then rammed up. If you own a #4 Fisher Vise, it was made using this pattern. You might notice that the "tooth" is not on the front (left) pattern. In the later years, the pattern was modified and that part was eliminated. The front vise jaw was totally supported by the screws.

    FISHER #1 Vise

    Ultra rare FISHER #1 Vise. This is the smallest double screw vise Fisher made. It originally sold for about $7, over 125 years ago. Worth a whole lot more today. This is the only COMPLETE #1 publicly known. The only non-original part is the handle. Weight is about 25 lb. I am sure that there are more hiding in someones basement or barn.
  3. I recently acquired a fisher #4 vise(6-1/4" jaws, 120lbs) and built a new home for it. I used 3/4" thick plate for the top and bottom, 12x12 & 12x18, the legs are 3x4x1/4" tube filled with sand, all that comes to about 230lbs and right about 350lbs with the vise. Cutting the legs on the Grizz. "Milling" 1/2" Holes Marking holes for the top plate. This is my first big welding project(big for me anyway) my little mig is a little under powered so I did 3 passes, seemed to hold up well and I didn't think my welds were too terrible. "Mind the puddle not the spark" is what I had to keep telling myself. I would have used the stick welder but I have to get a new cord for it. Just over 50lbs of sand. The paint is a walnut color, it was still a bit wet and in the sunlight its more brown but in the shop its a nice dark brown not quite black, goes well with the old tools. The leg had a crappy plate welded to it already so I made a better one. Though I was too much of a noob to remember when I drilled all the holes, these were supposed to line up with threaded holes in the base but I accidently drilled them 1/2" instead of 27/64". These pins hold it really well since there was a lot of down force on the leg anyway after bolting the vise to the top plate. HEAVY and ready to anchor to the floor! There are 3 holes to use for anchoring, 2 in front and 1 you cant see that is in between the 2 back legs. I wanted a stand that would protect the screws as well, this seems to work.
