Post Vice

I bought this post vice years ago from an old blacksmith in Massachusetts and tragically it has sat in my dad’s garage ever since. On recent trip to visit my folks, I finally decided to ship all the heavy tooling that I amassed in my college days to myself in Oakland. I built a big crate and packed it with my anvil, this vice and an assortment of hand tools that were too big to bring with me when I drove across the country 12 years ago.

Now the crate has arrived and I can finally use the tools I was so excited to get when I was first learning the fundamentals of metalwork.

Post vices are meant to stand upright and provide excellent support for anything that needs to simultaneously held firmly and struck. They need to be anchored to something however and so I built this frame to secure it to the floor.

-Stay Tuned
