Derek Heidemann of Sturbridge Village is up this week teaching a very cool filing vise workshop. You can see the nearly completed vise in the foreground. Here he is tempering a return spring using an old school cool method. #colonial #oldschoolcool #toolstomaketoolsBox joint pliers with Peter Ross was amazing.
