Hi folks,

I am starting to wind down and I have stuff I bought new, and never got around to fixing. or using.

For instance two sets of vice ironmongery I got from Axminster. I think York brand, and believe one was a face vice like the one Frank Klauz fitted to his big bench. (I think it's a continental design.) The other might be a tail vice.

This is heavy stuff, and I'd prefer anyone interested to come and collect. I live about two miles from Junction 7 M6) Beer tokens will suffice for price or maybe you make a contribution to your local Air-Ambulance.

Sound reasonable?

I will try to get my PC to recognise my mobile, and p;ost some pics.

Regards John

Is a puzzlement!

Hee-hee!
I did post and then changed my mind. It's not what I thought it was.
Very generous of you, though, John.

I wish I did. I could do with re-making mine. It's been quite badly attacked by woodworm and it is also uncomfortably high for me these days. I've lost over and inch-and-a-half in height in recent years, and I can feel the difference.
:(

Steve,

I thought it was just me losing height! According to my service records, I was 6 feet and 1/4" in 1964. Now the NHS says I am 5'6". Back trouble, I was told, can have this effect. Don't know what else to blame it on.

As for woodworm, I don't think we have a defence other than Cedar wood. I just leave the spiders in my shop alone!

Hi Benchwayze

I am a bit confused now. Are those vices still available? I have a new bench and new home made vice which has not installed yet due to some issues with metalwork. I think these could be a good addition to my new bench .

Hi There. Smalmaleki

I am sorry about the delay.
I had an accident at home I'm afraid. My stair lift fell apart, with me strapped in it. Fortunately I wasn't moving so I just crashed into the balustrade and bruised me knees!

Yes the vice hardware is still available.

So let me know if you want pics, and I'll get some. done.

Cheers

John

No bench. Just the vice-hardware.

My bench is an old carpenter's bench and at 30" wide it's a bit of a beast to handle. I am thinking of replacing it, with a 'Little John', if I can still get one! I will just leave my old one on the drive, around Nov 5th this year! Lol!

Haha
I only asked as you were asking if Steve has room for another one.

I am finding it difficult to find the best spot in the garage for my new bench( only 170cm * 67cm.

Under a window is probably the best for an amateur shop. If you have a window of course.

I like to work looking out of the garage, so no one coming in can startle me. So mine is against the wall, and up against the buttress, where the garage enters the main house. No movement or vibration at all. But it is too wide. and clouts me in the midriff. I f I lost some weight it would help when I bend over the vice! Or I could sell my planer thicknesser!

Can see your posts, still can't see any photos of the items supposed to be up for sale!
What part of "I have had an accident" don't you comprehend?"
I would guess John is not feeling too great at the moment and creating photos is not a priority.

I think he had sons who will be looking after him.
He is quite a resourceful bloke.
