Antique Industrial Block

ANtique Inddustrial Swage Block

Antique Industrial Block:

This heavy old block was modified for bending or straightening bar on a press. A half hex was machined the long way across the ridges of one side.

It has three areas where it looks like cores were missing or that it should have holes. Where the round holes are (at bottom) they appear to be too close as if drilled or added by drilling.
