  1. 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.
  2. Hey guys, first post here, I've been reading for years but never had need to post. I picked up this unknown brand vise, and wonder if you guys can ID it? I'm sorry I didn't take a pic assembled, but here are some shots of all the pieces. More shots to come later. On the underside of the mounting bracket is a few stamped digits, very hard to read. It LOOKS like it says "COL F & T CO" and has a large "4" above that. I have attached a pic of that. It is very heavy, and is right at 6 inch jaw width. It has chamfered arms, and has a hex nut on the pivot pin. I'm building a real heavy mount, I'l
  3. Gotta gate I'm getting real close to hanging and I am really struggling with whether I have chose the correct posts to mount to, and whether my concrete hole to support the post will be deep enough. I have tried a few post calculators online but can't find enough information to feel confident in my posts. The gate is 8' tall, 4' wide, and weighs almost 300 lbs. the post I chose to hang the gate on is a 2"x3" structural tube post with a 1/4" wall thickness. On the other side of the post is a 13" wide side panel also 8' tall that is welded to the same post. That panel additionally weighs
  4. I just bought a Buffalo Post Drill 616 at auction for $22 and now am in the middle of busting rust and taking apart to put back together. However, I don't have a big shop and so do most work out in the yard. Was wondering if any of the Faire/Rendezvous/Historical Recreation Smiths have any stand setups for taking your full size post drills with you on the road. Thanks.
  5. Hello to all. I have another repair related question that I wanted to throw out here, to see if my thinking is right. Recently, I bought a used post-vise on ebay. It seems to be in good used shape, except for the leg. It is ever-so-slightly bent at the bottom. My guess would be that it is out 5 degrees or less. I am thinking that I should secure it, try to heat the bend with a torch, and then use a "cheater bar" to try and true it up, but I wanted to get some more experienced advice before I went and did something that I will regret. I will try and get a picture posted on here tomorrow
