    It was way ahead of its time being front wheel drive and somewhat "modular" back in those early days. One wonders how succesful it was and whether there are any of them left in museums anywhere.

    I would be trying to figure out a way to abscond with the Pullman while the sheet shakers were hypnotizing everyone else

    Maybe; you like trucks and already have probably 3 outsized vises.
    I have 2 trucks that suit my plan; and without equivalent vise...but no serious vices!

    So chivalrous! That poor woman's been captive who knows how long, trapped with at least two fingers in the jaws...Ms. S OK with that?

    We all look at such tools, in how we'd fabricate. I haven't means to generate sufficient heat to bend for the jaws, yet bandsawing that first of 4" plate is not one bit outside realm of do-able. Thread the screw & nut, sleeve that with heavy wall tubing, big stub of wide flange, couple strips of leaf spring, turn & mill some one off fasteners, 1-1/2" rod for handle...I see the jaws sawn from a single long piece. Clamp upright, carbon arc or rosebud the neck of one, allow weight to pull it down 90, quench and turn it around for second [shorter] side and repeat.
    Lol, what it needs most of all isn't visible; padeye, fork pockets, or hoisting ring.
