Default Antique engraver's bench

I stumbled across this by accident on the internet. Pretty cool reputed to be from 1890's -1900. They must have been using those chisels standing.

I have some old push gravers. The steel is really crude and bulky; but the handles are nice. When I get a chance to photograph them I'll post a pix.

Cool Re: Antique engraver's bench

Looks like something engravers used at my first job. Engravers didn't stand, but sat on tall stools with their feet tucked on the stool's foot rail. The company was over 100 years old when I was hired as an apprentice engraver; its equipment went to the Smithonian when it closed shop

It looks like the wooden post has an iron pedal the engraver steps on to clamp the work. Is that correct?

I think the shelf was where the Gravermax unit went which of course is no longer needed since Steve invented the self oscillating Airgraver.
