Shaving Horse with Cast Iron Clamp

Tools made by Philadelphia maker, John Veit are uncommon (in my experience). The unique cast iron clamp is marked “John Veit, The corner New Market & Green, Phila”. The horse is 64” long with a 21” high seat. The iron clamp has notches for 4 different heights of work. The rear end of the plank has an early repair (2 large rivets to control splitting) and the board under the front of the plank is also an early addition to repair the plank. The history of a great deal of early use is recorded in the plank, including a multitude of saw kerfs resulting from the shaving horse doubling as a saw horse.
