I Forge Iron

My first post vise


Recommended Posts

First one I've ever seen, well technically second, about 30 feet ahead of this one I found one that was rusted past fixing. This one cost me $35, works fine. I got the rusted one too...


The leg has been repaired with a section of pipe though. A little unsightly.

Another thing of note about this vise is that it was originally made as a finishers vise or filing vise. The high jaws with that lack the curve of heavier forging style vises shows this.

That's a 17th century style vise with all the fittings replaced with modern arc welded improvised replacements. It will work well for your first vise and these repairs in no way impair the functionality of this vise its just not original.
