Restored Anvil / Vise

Recommended Posts

I didn't know if i should post this in Anvils or Vises. Well, you can tell what i decided.

Here it is. I posted the "before" pics in another thread, but, i will again for the side by side.

Like i said before, it was made by the Adams/Farwell Co. in Dubuque, Iowa. It has a patent date of Jan. 15 1895.

Enjoy

Too bad someone tried to clamp something too hard and broke the one side. Looks good J. :D


Yeah i think someone either clamped something to hard or was hammering something over the edge. It's just cast iron...not really heavy duty by any means.

Nice job. Did you just clean it or did you spray it with something? It almost looks powder coated in the new pictures.


I just cleaned it up, smeared grease where i didn't want paint, and sprayed it with a grafite wheel paint.
