I bought this Hollands 18 this weekend and it was sitting on this RR stand. I have seen only two of these stands before. Bl00 sent me this old advertisment from 1925 for the stand. Last spring, I found a reed on this same stand but the price was $1000. I thought it was just too much for a non swivel reed. Maybe the stand would have made it worth it. I have posted a pic of the reed sitting on a pallet. I see the same setup posted here on GJ by catalyze on 4/4/2011 http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...39&postcount=5

The old ad states the stand was made to fit between the stalls in a RR roundhouse. The vise weighs 260# and the stand weighs 500#. The casting on the stand is rough but it is very unususl. This vise supposedly came out of the AT&SF shop years ago. I have another hollands 18 that bolts down with 4 bolts and weighs 280#. I would guess this to be an older version from the 20's? I hope to paint it up and put it in my shop.

Demoman...That thing is a beast and so is the stand. Too bad about that large cut on the side of the jaw tower. It looks like its in really good shape for its age and being at a railway yard.

Still a killer find and you definitely suck. Those big hogs are hard to find.

The guy loaded it with a skid loader. The vise was unbolted from the base. It was raining so we unloaded it by hand istead using one of our loaders. The vise was no problem until we grabbed the base. When it came out of the tailgate there was three of us on it. Naturally I somehow got the heavy end. I almost blew a gasket trying not to drop it. Lets just say there are no more kids in my future!! . I did not really weigh it but I am positive it is over 500. I will do that in the morning as it is close to the scale.

The big hogs are hard to find. This one is only the second big vise(8" jaw) I have found in Kansas. The rest have all been shipped in.

That stand is really buttress like. Big vises can really show their teeth when mounted properly. Is it cast iron?

The grinding cut is deep but can be welded. Wouldn't you like to find that guy and give him a "caning" for grindig my vise. Remember in 94' the kid that was given a well deserved caning for spray painting cars in Singapore and then Pres Clinton intervened and got him fewer strikes. I bet he didn't do that again!

I'd have to agree with you on that one. Its a tool but you don't have to beat it so badly.

The stand is cast steel I would say and it weighed 640# or 900# with the vise. NOt bad. The ears on the vise were 1" thick.
There was some ancient grease on the bottom and the original color was a dark green on the base.

Here are some of my newest purchases. The pair of Athols have been sitting around for a few weeks now and i just got time to strip them naked and give then some new life. One is a 4 1/2" and the other is 4". There is quite a difference in the amount of metal between a 1/2" of jaw width.

I thinking ill go with a very dark gray, their original color, and white lettering.

The Columbian is something my dad found and decided to clean up. He's since replaced it with a smaller one so this one is for sale. If anybody is interested, let me know. The top of the jaw towers have been sanded smooth and he repaired a small chunk taken out of the side of the jaw tower. Other then those 2 things, its in excellent condition and is a brute of a vise.

I purchased a Record No.4 new in the 70's and still have it. They are a good vice and you got a good deal at that price.
