Very cool vise. Combination anvil and leg vise. Jenn should make one of these.

that is very cool.

I love the dovetail mount for the anvil.


I've seen a few of these here and there and this anvil is by far the cleanest.

Was this actually his?


here is a video of him working. Watch how he swings the hammer. there are many today that say you don't raise your shoulder.

That is a great video, I like how he said you have to take what you want to make and think all the steps backwards, then build it from the bottom up
