[yak] Leg vice


#1

John Burgess might be able to provide a leg vise after his
surgery. I suppose that’s what they’ll put his leg in when they
operate on his knee???

G’day; Nah - they reckon I’ve got enough vices.

And this is the last you’ll hear from me for a little while, so
I want to thank all of you for putting up with me, and a special
cartload of thanks to all the good kind folk who sent me
messages, virtual flowers and even a virtual angel “to watch over
me” and it is a very heartfelt thanks. There were too many to
thank each one separately, but I know you’ll understand. Hope my
withdrawal symptoms aren’t too bad! Cheerio for now, Love,

You may have Dickensian methods of dealing with people after
surgery in the US, but in the UK we are past all. A vice is also
something you have that you wish you didn’t have, or perhaps you
wish you had more of. Seriously though, it’s a leg vice. It’s a
traditional vice used a lot in the silver trade. I don’t think
that you can buy them anymore. That’s why I wanted the picture.
It has a leg on it which fits in a block of wood on the floor.
This not only makes it very firm, but also reduces noise and
vibration when hammering. What’s wrong with John Burgess’s knee
anyway? Richard W UK

I’ve seen a picture of a leg vice in a book on blacksmithing.
Perhaps you can find a picture/drawing of one in a book or from a
blacksmith. There’s also a newslist for blacksmiths but I can’t
tell you how to get there. Surely someone else on this list
belongs.
