Keeping it old school......

Greetings Jon,

        Great to see our friend AJ is not just sitting around.  Have not seen him in a while. Just a suggestion or two. Ya need to support your leg vise at the bottom. ( steel plate ) ..  If you make a cut  out in your stump for your swage block it makes it easy to do edge work ..Have fun with your new stuff..

Forge on and make beautiful things

I really like that vice! Nice nailing station, I am wanting to make one similar to that one.

OK. Is this to keep it from moving around or to give it a hard, solid surface upon which to sit? Thanks in advance.

Greetings Jon,

           The metal shim on mine is for two different thicknesses of blocks ..  Yours only needs a cut slightly larger than your swage.  My much larger blocks are set up the same way..  This makes it much easier to work on the edge.. 

Forge on and make beautiful things

Is the Swag block new? Is there a place to buy one?

Mod Note: Link removed. The swage block can be found on line. Price $300 Plus shipping.
