Let's See Your Old School Tools
So I just inherited some 'tools' and I'd actually like to know a bit about them. Their history went with the previous owner ... But both of them are damn cool, and are keepers even though they both are in rough shape ...
First, a Colombian 6" Vice Model 504. This thing weighs around 80 pounds and is pitted, but in working condition. Anyone have any idea what year it is? From what I gathered it's pre-1960 ...
Here's a close up of the logo:
And now finally, an Anvil. Made by Vulcan, I think in Birmingham, AL. It has an 8 marked on the base, and weighs 88 pounds. Again, I'd like to know an approximate age.
Anyway, there is nothing I value more than the tools used by my grandfather. They are priceless to me. Every time, I use them I just feel the love.
Thanks in advance.

^ too bad the edges of that anvil are wasted. I'll have to get up a picture of my old bandsaw. Maybe tomorrow.
I wouldn't bring her home to Mama, but Mama ain't home tonight.
