1800s Forge Vise

$ 295.00

Antique blacksmith forge vise - late 1800s and has the look to prove it! Probably wins the title Mother of all Vises; I'm thinking it weighs in at over 60lbs. Without bolting this in place, it took two of us to hold this puppy & crank it all the way open - turns out it's got a whopping 7" jaw. Works a little differently than most, in that the jaw is cranked open to size but does not open until some counterweight is laid on the arm (that counterweight would be you). Once your raw steel's in there, release and tighten the jaw. Mounts by a large spade plate that can adjust position along the central shaft. Everything included is in fine working order, but we are missing the pin to hold the mounting plate in place (a 3/8" by 1 7/8" x 3" pin would do it). Coolest antique vise we've ever seen come through our shop!
