  1. Hey all! I found this vise for about $80 (converting BRL to USD). It's a bit old, but looks fine, and the owner says it's "working perfectly". I still have to go over there and check it in person, but do you guys think this looks like a good opportunity? Also, if I buy it, what can I already do to make it look better and last longer? Cheers!
  2. Hello all. I just stopped by my local antique store on my way home from work to see if they had a leg vise on hand. Sure enough the owner did and I ended up leaving with a rusty old vise that he says he got up in Boston bar, BC. Perhaps it is a remnant of the gold rush that happened in the mid to late 1800 in BC. Any who. I brought it home and quickly disassembled it and started at it with a cup brush. The only mark I found was on the female end of the vise thread. A letter stamped M or W. Can anyone help me I'd this vise? Sorry if my photo size is too late. I have no idea how to reduce.
  3. Hi. my name is Pedro. i from Brazil. this is my first topic here. sorry about my poor english but i'm trying do my best with a google translation help hehe Recently i started to building my workshop and this weekend i found and bought a 4"1/2 leg vise that was covered by a lot of paint. so i cleaned it up and i descovered thar the jaws of my leg vise have so much rust that make holes on the steel. i want to know how can i possible repair this rust holes. the good news is that everything is aligned and there is no cracking or seriously damage to be concerned , so i am thinking to grind wh
  4. I have never seen a leg vise like this before. What's it called? What was it made for? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.
  5. I finally got a post vise!! I have been using my bench vise and trying to be gentle with it as I know they are not meant for the abuse. But every once in a while you get carried away and take a few swings at the hot item in the vise. But this weekend I scored this little beauty, the guy was asking $125 (the cheapest I have seen on the oly-pen) and I didn't hesitate to pull out my anvil cash stash to seal the deal, opens and closes very smooth, everything is solid and tight, only one little chip out of one of the jaws. Not sure make, age etc. The only mark I found is the 2 under the mounting br

    Baby vise

    My leg vises had a little baby, hasn't even sprouted a leg yet
  7. Hello all, I just thought I'd share what I was able to pick up from a smithy near Detroit today. As far as I can tell it is in amazing shape, has all the parts, and is ready for me to start using it. From browsing craigslist and eBay this is the best condition screw I have seen for sale. The jaws also meet nearly perfectly square. Post pics of ya'lls screws if you have nice ones. I'm sick and tired of seeing worn out looking ones in posts on eBay and the such. Brent

  10. I just acquired this vise from a friend that was tired of watching it rust at his place. I was initially intrigued by the profile of the jaws, (Farrier's vise?) and after cleaning it up a bit found several names. On the front of the vise jaw was MILLS, underneath and vertically was MOxxxANIA, NEW YORK, and under that horizontally the number 54. On the fixed leg was stamped SMITH & OSSO, BIRMINGHAM and maybe C. after. The screw is temporarily without a handle. The box was different from any of the others I have in that there are 2 of the "no twist" rails cast opposite each other and they bo
  11. I want to start by saying that most of what I'm about to post has already been posted in another thread. I just wanted to add my own idea's to it, or take multiple ideas and put them together. To see where I got a lot of my ideas see the original post on how to "Build Your Own Leg Vise" So my take on this is simple. This vise doesn't require a spring as it opens with the screw and due to the design of the vise, the vise face is always parallel to one another. It still allows you to build interchangeable faces for different applications and allows the bottom to be either mounted to a plat
