I looked to see where I would start this thread and I discovered this metal forming specific forum. Is this new? I never noticed it before now, Hoocci Mama!!

I noticed a Mechanical Forum as well, is that new?

This little 2-3/4" vise has quickly become one of my favorites.
It looks to be hand forged, can someone confirm this?

It works like a post vise without the post.

You can see the ends of the jaws are different from each other.

The peened ends of the handle have small flats as if made with hammer blows.

The pivot nut appears to be hand made.

It sure does look like handmade and forged.

Yes it is hand forged..

There were a variety of small vise makers and the these little vises are very rugged for there size..

Nice find and complete.
