I love the cyber

(UPDATE: all shirts are sold) There is one Daily Skep T-shirt from the first printing (size large) still waiting for a new home. In honor of the almighty Cyber Monday I’m discounting it to $15 shipped within the Continental US I am almost certainly losing money on that deal, so grab it while you can.

A curiosity

I found this today at an antique shop. it looks like a stand-alone tail vise with its own set of dog holes. The beam is roughly 2″ x 4″ and the overall length was close to 5′ Does anyone have any ideas about what this is or what it was used for?
