    I have a large one as well. Jaws are only 5" wide but she weight a ton. Blacksmith's vice. Made so that you can bash the hell out of them, unlike most bench vices. But she's no precision instrument.

    @Cremulator its missing the mounting plate but thats
    no problem.
    Mount it on a stump , you can pound all day with a 5lb mash
    hammer and you wont stress the vice at all.
    Perfect for any heavy jobs and I mean heavy jobs.
    Grab some chalk and rub on the back of the jaws
    it may have a makers mark like Peter Wright considered
    the Guru of leg vices and anvils
    How wide are the jaws on you leg vice???
    Heres three proper tools add my furnace and you can make anything

    Yeh it was welded to a steel table. You can see where I had to cut the welded tabs where the old mounting plate would have been.
    I think the jaws are about 150mm wide. I'll have to measure them when I get a chance.

    Bit of copper pipe, welder and a screwdriver to make an easy out for bolts broken deep into the thread.
