I Forge Iron

Salvage yard post vise

 I found this little beauty while at the local salvage yard digging up a trailer hitch for my truck.

It was laying over in the dirt beside the weigh in scales.

It was locked up when I bought it. I disassembled everything and wirebrushed all parts before putting it back together.

I only found 2 markings on it, a number 6 on the inside edge of one of the jaws and a number 2 on the screw assembly.

It now works very smoothly, it appears to be hand forged with the slots hot punched and you can see where the bends in the metal were made while forging.
