Vice, Huge double acting floor model ships cable splicer - $200

This is a good condition double action vice, originally it was used for swaging ships cables mounted in a ship yard in Seattle. Lots of clamping force. It weighs about 200 LB, base pivots and locks with a pin. 30" long, 30" tall and the wheel is 18" across. It would make a great base for a table or some art thing. Make me an offer if you please!

Found a use for one set of wheels. (snip)

How did you decide which set of wheels to use?

I polled the neighborhood.

Today I dropped off the wife, and went searching for garage sales.  Saw an Estate Sale sign, whoopee,  better than a garage sale anytime.   Nice home in a good neighborhood.  Garage was a tiny two car, but thought I'd hit gold when I spotted 4 long folding tables with tools.  Some wrenches, no complete sets, same with sockets, and all were well used made in Japan or Taiwan.   Were two beer flats of Vise Grips, but not for me at eight and twelve bucks each.  Some drywall and  concrete tools, so went on to the house.  In the basement was a small work bench with household dreck, drywall, plumbing bits.   Off in the corner was a little black Craftsman box.  3 drawer top, small but no carry handles, and a 5 drawer bottom, 26 inches.  Not for me at $100.  Walked in and out of a garage sale, nothing.  None of the Avon bottles were interesting even.  On to the Habitat resell store, which is getting full and offering discounts.  Last week I picked up two elderly hacksaws.   Today I found a heavy old Craftsman pipe clamping tool for woodworking for a buck.   A Millers Falls brace in exception condition.   Plus a little home made wooden bit holder for the square shank bits for the brace.  Forked over $4 and change.  Tomorrow is the big auto swap meet in town, hoping to get two hours to walk it.  Looking for 56 Pontiac taillights,  hubcaps etc.  Always looking for Studebaker parts.

I noticed there was no clutch pedal, and had a large modern (1960s)  brake pedal.  Driver was about 40,  ushered 3 youguns into the back, wife  in front and headed home trying to beat the storm.  I would bet the wheels were put on when it was built 20 some years ago, and they were probably used then.

The tool will work it just needs a slight mod to it before next time. I lost minimal gas so I'm happy. Put a can of gas in and its putting 55F out of the dash vents with a 97F ambient. thumbsup2 I'm back to riding in a cool pool.  th-bounce

The core remover tool did go in and thread the OEM core out, but heres where it got sideways. the core remover wouldn't pull the oem core out. it was loose in the remover barrel and I could thread it in and out but never could get it out. I finally unthreaded it and pulled the core remover out and opened the valve and blew the oem core out into a shop towel. thumbsup2 The replacement core would go into the remover and stay ttached but upon closer inspection the oem core had a bigger button on it and wouldn't fit down in the hole so whenever you tried to remove it the core would fall out.

"Audel guide books"

Audel books are pure gold and should be added to your shop library whenever you encounter one. Often found in flea markets and antique shops and anywhere that old books are usually found!
