I Forge Iron

dad's post vice


Recommended Posts

Not knowing anything I bought a forge last week.  I've got a bunch of related gear that came down through the family that I'm slowly pulling out of the corners.


I am interested to hear what some knowledgeable people might see in this vice that I do not.  I can't confirm it's origins before it was in my grandfathers possession. So that'll give you a good idea of where this came from.

This is a simple yet fully functional tool from a farm where it was worth it's weight in gold.

What do you see?

I see.... a guitar case that is driving me crazy because it looks as if it is being used as a work bench!!!:o

Nice vise. It is really hard to figure out who made your post vise withought any markings. The deep chamfering reminds me of an Iron City, Indian Cheif, or Columbian, but who knows...

Looks like it is missing the spring which is very common and easy to make a new one. Good that it still has the mounting bracket.
