    Surely you do.

    Buy yerself a used garbidge truck with compactor.

    That'll be a 'conversation piece" as easily tops 275 Avoir. Might need a bit of cleaning?



    Next best, one of those rigs they use to crush dead automobiles after they take the good stuff off for re-sale as spare parts.

    Wimp-out? Even a cheap-ass Horror-Fright alleged hydraulic press can grip stuff right tightly.

    Obese person or one with a pumping-Iron hobby and arse-cheeks as can crack walnuts might be considered "cheating" as far as "conversation starters" go, though?

    "Piece" could be the wrong word, entirely on that one?

    Not SMALL.. but 6" wide jaws? Gotta be one of the most common sizes around, as to THAT part, anyway.

    Many among us have at least one vise with TEN inch jaw width.

    Even "shaper"vises start getting right scarce, anything larger. Limited general purpose use, humans only getting but so big.

    Larger were custom -for niche markets - even shop-fabbed as bespoke "fixtures", big as they needed to be.. but not general-purpose?

    Hop on over to "Garage Journal" and look up "Royce". He's been known to fab up chipping / railroad vises and associated. Be it known however "Royce" is tough on his apprentices.
