    Ther was an auction I went to last night and I got me some new treasures!!

    A 10  foot long all metal bench.

    A 8" bench grinder

    [​IMG]

    A 5" heavy barell vise...I have been wanting one of these babys!

    [​IMG]

    And a Sheet metal roller!

    [​IMG]

    All of these for $30 each!!  What a STEEL!  ( my little miss SOB says that line was cheesy!)

    The roller even has grooves to roll 3 different size steel rod.

    [​IMG]

    Perfect for making my own heavy grill grate for my fire pit!

    This is what it did to this scrap sheet metal tube.

    A perfect circle! It also came with a base but I think I am going to mount it to the bench and use the base to make my backyard charcoal grill/smoker. Yep thats right Mrs SOB another smoker![​IMG]

    Now I have to clean the garage to get these babys setup!

    Wish me luck!

    Looks like a great haul SOB - The vice is worth every penny - and you will find lots of uses for the other items as well - I use the bench grinder / polisher to clean up yard tools all the time

    Nice score, SOB!  I hope Mrs. SOB doesn't kibash the new smoker before you serve your first meal.  I have a stealthy UDS project in the works that my wife is not yet aware of.  I think we both may be in trouble before this is over!  [​IMG]   It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission -- especially when you ask after serving a great smoked meal!
