My only “anvil” is a 9” piece of narrow gauge rail. Ray what were the 2’ pieces you guys sold being use for?

That is one sexy vice!! How many hours do you guys think it took to make?

I bet it took just as long to draw up on the computer too.

OK... so I had to search for 'rail breaker'. You were building something like this?



I bet the railroads had lots of cool stuff like that. I used to live next to some tracks. One day crews came by with a machine that slid the old worn ties out and inserted new ones, then somehow levelled everything again. Pretty impressive operation.

Great vise building video, in my former life in the Railroad industry I was fortunate enough to get to build a lot of cool machines, the vise build reminds me of the rail breakers I got to build, we recycled rail and you would get a premium for rail cut to 2’ or so lengths, we built several, each one bigger than the previous one, the last one I built was fabricated out of 5” thick plate, getting one to tolerate the shock wave resulting from the rail breaking was the biggest challenge.

Maybe we can take this thread in a different and more random direction. :)

A while ago there was a discussion about vices ...not the bad habit kind, but rather, the shop kind. One of my vices (...the former kind) is watching fabrication videos, and I recently stumbled across this guy's channel. This is a summary of a 4 part series. Check out this mother of all vices...

I have sat by and didn’t even follow this discussion even though I receives lots of calls and emails of support.

Bigbadjon-you are nothing but a bully-that does not work on me

This whole thing is a litmus test of the character of this FC group it divides us....c

I miss my old 8-track player, still got the pack of matches to shim the cartridge so it didn't double track, lol

Back in the 70s I purchased a used Marantz model 19 amplifier and two Acoustic Research model AR3a speakers and a Bic model 960 turntable. I still have them today and the sound is great.
