Those are really useful! We had one in the old shop and my other halves father offered me another one. Like Arjan I do need to find or build a sturdy bench first, cause a vice is only as good as its mounting.

A blacksmiths vice like that shouldn't need much of a sturdy bench at all as the loads should be transferred straight to the floor.

I also love free stuff got these given as guy could not get rid of them and had to move out of storage gold one only needs a wee bit of work but blue one is more involved ie engine and box out and chassis needing quite a bit of work

The loads indeed go through the floor, but a heavy bench stops the whole lot moving around when the hammering is in a non vertical plane :)
