These go by many names through-out world. Leg Vice, Shank Vise, Post Vise, Blacksmiths Vise and others. Its purpose is the same for all the names though, and that is to forge on. Whether you’re upsetting, clamping, bending or any other operation these have the strength to handle it since the load has an extra support in the leg. Just like an anvil must have weight to send the energy into your work so too must a leg vise. The leg vises we sell are made from modern tool steels and have been built for any of your forging tasks. It is best mounted in a location that you can get all the way around it rather than on a bench or attached to a shelf
These leg vises are cast with striated and heat treated jaws
Only the original post forging vise handle should be used when tightening the leg vise.
Using pipes and similar bars to get greater leverage is strongly discouraged
