  • Lg. Vise 7 In. Jaws Prentiss? Farm Blacksmith

Antique Junction

OFFERED IS AN EARLY AND EXTREMELY LARGE VISE THAT WAS USED FOR BLACKSMITHING, FARMING OR PERHAPS EVEN THE RAILROAD. VISE WEIGHS ABOUT 200 POUNDS (SCALE READ 198) WITH JAWS THAT ARE 7" WIDE!!!! TOP OF THE VISE (2ND PHOTO) IS DIFFICULT TO MAKE OUT IN IT'S ENTIRETY BUT IS BELIEVED TO READ C.H.CO. CAT. NO 407. CANNOT BE 100% CERTAIN BUT I BELIEVE THE INITIALS COULD BE FOR THE COLUMBIAN HARDWARE CO. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT IT COULD PERHAPS BE A PRENTISS. THOSE OF YOU WHO DEAL/COLLECT THESE EARLY VISES WOULD PROBABLY KNOW AND IF YOU WOULD CARE TO SHARE ANY INFO IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. VISE HAS A SWIVEL BASE WITH 8 PRE-DRILLED HOLES FOR ADJUSTING THE BASE (10TH PHOTO). ALSO HAS A SPRING LOADED RELEASE FOR THE BASE. THERE HAS BEEN NO ALTERATIONS AND I SEE NO REPAIRS, CRACKS, ETC. TO THIS VISE. THE ONLY THING I DID WAS I TOOK THE BASE OFF TO GET IT FREED UP. VISE HAS A TOTAL OF 3 MOUNT HOLES, ONE OF WHICH IS PARTIALLY BUSTED OFF(9TH PHOTO). VISE JAWS HAVE MISSING SCREWS WHERE THE END PORITONS WERE SHEARED OFF AND STILL REMAIN INSIDE. ALSO, NOT 100% CERTAIN, BUT THE TOP FLAT SHROUD AREA APPEARS THAT IT COULD HAVE SOME CHIPPING (2ND PHOTO--UNDER THE MARKINGS). PERHAPS THIS IS HOW IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE, I DON'T KNOW. MEASUREMENTS ARE 13" HIGH--BASE TO TOP OF JAWS, 10" BASE DIAMETER, 30" FROM T-HANDLED TO END OF COLUMN--ENTIRELY CLOSED, SLIDING T-HANDLE IS 16 1/2" AND THE VISE OPENS UP ABOUT 15 1/2 TO 16". TYPICAL WEAR FOR A PIECE OF ITS AGE AND USE. ALL IN ALL VERY GOOD CONDITION. WOULD BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND ANOTHER VISE OF THIS SIZE AND WEIGHT. VISE MUST BE PICKED UP. NO INTERNATIONAL SALES. I'M LOCATED ROUGHLY 2 HOURS EAST OF COLUMBUS, OHIO AND 1 HOUR SOUTHWEST OF PITTSBURGH, PA JUST OFF I-70.I MAY BE ABLE TO WORK WITH YOU AND PERHAPS MEET YOU AN HOUR AWAY FROM MY LOCATION. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR ADDITIONAL PHOTOS NEEDED PLEASE BE SURE TO ASK IN ADVANCE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BIGGER ITEMS SUCH AS THIS PLEASE ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT THE LARGE #200 ANVIL WHICH I'M OFFERING.
