While rummaging in my favorite “discarded paradise”, I found this bench vise tucked away in a corner. I have never seen such a behemoth and thought it would be cool to own. After thinking about it for a couple weeks, I decided to see if it was still there. It was and I negotiated trading scrap and cash for it.
It appeared to have been outside for some time and most of it had seized up. Three hours, a large mallet and a can of penetrating oil isall it took to separate the 2 halves. I brought it inside to warm up and when it was next to my workbench, I thought it looked like the Flintstones car at the drive-in…lol
When it gets warmer, I will weld a stand for it and give it the WOODFORGE paint scheme…
Note: the small vise in the 3rd picture is a normal size vise!
