BANYAN Posted April 10, 2016 Share #1 Posted April 10, 2016 (edited) Hi folks, I have recently had some old tools come my way (#7, #4, #71 and #78 planes; and a bunch of other small odds and ends). Among the other items was this small hand held tool that looks like it may be some form of vise. The screew (metal into hardwood thread, slides the brass strip back and forth in the slot which can open to about75mm. The slot is about about 3 -4 mm wide. There are the stubs of what appear to have been two brass pins visible, on on the fixed end, one on the sliding part. if not a vise, I intend to use it as such, as it is ideal for holding short lengths for sanding, bevelling and drilling or the like. Any ideas or clues please? cheers Pat Edited April 10, 2016 by BANYAN mtaylor, WackoWolf and Canute 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
