Post Vise

Recommended Posts

Had this old post vise for 20 years or so. Now retired decided to pull it out to to get it mounted. It works really well and has little to no wear in the screw. It is heavy and the jaws measure close to 6 inches across. Did not see any markings it. Also have a smaller one about 4 and a half inch jaws. Any thoughts on origin and age?IMG_1347.thumb.jpeg.1f73f1bde940b852c36649ec0cb39612.jpeg

Without any kind of name stamped on it, it will be made by one of the hundreds of manufacturers in the biz at the time in England. It has some characteristics of my marked Peter Wright, and some of my unmarked  one. Probably mid to late 1800's, with wiggle room either way. That is a good size to use. My main is 6" and aux is 4 1/2" and I use both on a regular basis.
