    I have enough vices.   That one's nice though. 

    I've been powder coating stuff recently - you got the oven and gun or a place to do it?

    They were free. They belonged to my wife's grandfather. Her dad had them sitting outside and didn't know what they were.

  • I don't know, I think I would simply oil them up and keep the patina.  Nice piece of hardware.

    Great find and the price was right, I say leave them as is! I love the old patina!

    Looks like it's just the right height for your nads, there, Trav.  
    If the world is something you accept rather than interpret, then you're susceptible to the influence of charismatic idiots.

    I have very long legs and very short nads.

    Ospho and a wire brush is enough!  My only score is the 6 feet of railroad track I use as the world's longest anvil.

    He has a 200lb anvil too but I don't feel like dealing with it just now.

    If you ever want to shorten that railroad track here's the anvil I made with a piece. The base may not look sturdy per see, but it has a hidden post and beam which takes and distributes any beating I can give it. The base is also glued and then filled with sand so it never walks or talks and just takes the blows!

    My dad always had a big piece of I-beam that he used for an anvil...
