Photos from Ted Mays, Tool Collection Tour   12 x 12 Swage Block Stand

Heavy cast block and anvil stands are quite rare and thus fetch high prices. If you ar not a collector you could build a stand like this from 1/2" steel plate. I do not recommend the light angle iron stands that many build as they are dangerous finger crushers. Even with a good stand the block should be handled with a strap and a pipe OR a pipe through a hole if installing on edge.

  • Solid Cast Iron
  • 13.75 x 13.75 x 16.5 inches tall
  • Fits 12.25 x 12.25 x 4.25 OR 12 x 12 x 4 inch block flat and on edge
  • WEIGHT: 126 pounds
  • Good Condition.
