I Forge Iron

My first leg vise and second too


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone.I was out at the flea market last weekend and found my first leg vise it is a small one missing the mounting plate and spring and not sure if it had a lead screw washer.The mounting plate  goes threw a mortise in the post and I think the screw box is brazed.From what I could find in my research this would be an older one? I got it for $10 and it been soaking in vinegar since Monday. I found my second vise a few rows over its a bigger one but the leg is broken or cut off.Its in good condition.I got it for $28.I'll weld a post on once I'm set up in a permanent location.Right  now I'm working outside. I'm thinking the bigger black one might be a trenton but no markings. Any info on either would be appreciated.I think I'm going to enjoy hunting and fixing the old tools as much as working the iron.Thanks Mike
