    75 # Rock Island. DSCF2280.JPG DSCF2279.JPG I got from my PawInlaw. Thinking of repainting. I like the patina so I might keep it the way it is. Can never have to many vices.

    that athol is probably close to 100 years old...best vises ever made imo, can still buy the same ones today just made by starrett which is who designed the athol vises. very expensive though, i grew up not to far from starretts and own alot of their tools...

    2762A0BC-8381-4641-A520-175E6523F84D.jpeg Time has forgotten the post vice. But I prefer it to a bench vise. The face will flex to hold angled or odd shaped objects where a bench vise won’t. Also you can pound the crap out of it since they are wrought not cast. This one has been passed down in my family for generations. Dont know how long but it is hand forged still hard at work.

    That is a gem. I like the way you mounted it. Is that a 10x10 post of oak? I have one that I want outside. DSCF2287.JPG DSCF2288.JPG

    Everyone knows Wiltons Bullet vices are the Super Bowl Trophy of the vices. I have been looking for a while without any luck. They are up there with anvil prices. I think you can still get NOS jaws for them. Great tool man.

    3A1B4ED1-DF2D-4436-A8FB-CD1717784012.jpeg The top is 8x10. The bottom is 8x14 wrapped in heavy angle brings it to 20” total. I hand hewed it out of white oak. Its all one piece. It’s fairly sturdy. The best way is to mount it to a work bench but I like to have my bench open. Outside you could put an 8x8 pressure treated post in the ground and short piece for the foot.

    It has a little play but it heavy enough that it’s not much. I started to weld and grind it for a tighter fit but it’s good enough for who it’s for.
