Show me your vise

This is my 100lb post vise mounted to a steel table. I also have a cheap Harbor Freight machinest vice attached to the other corner.

Ok, it is a post vise without the post, or a leg vise without the leg. Any suggestions on what it really is and why it has no leg?

And if it has no post, how can it be a post vise?

My main shop vise is mounted to my big workbench

I've got another big one mounted to a 2x4 tower because i had a pile of 2x4s on hand when I wanted to mount it. I need to replace the spring on it though.

Lastly is a pair of smaller ones (3 and 4 inches) both needing mounting hardware, and one needing a spring, which i'm going to mount in much more portable fashion once I forge the needed parts.

60 lb vise, $40. I lagged a 2x4 to the shop wall, then lagged a 2x8 to that and mounted the vise on it. working on a portable stand.

This is my 6" Indian Chief. I picked it up near Reno about 20 years ago for WAY more than folk in the mid west would think a bad joke. It cost less to air freight it to Alaska.

I also have a 4" no-name but it's not set up, buried in fact. There'll be room in the new shop though. :cool:
