Neat vice. Maybe there was another section that you don't have, possibly notched or something for a special use???

Man, we'll talk about just about anything on this site! Lol! But, now that you asked....I've been trying to get this crank apart to salvage the teardrop end and pedal stem if possibe. Tried penatrant, heat, tapping the outside while applying force. I may not yet have gotten it apart...... but, I now have a shot for this thread...silver lining!!!

I also have this old beast. No manufacturers markings at all. Anyone have any ideas why the rear jaw pivots and is removable?

Very nice vice. I have seen similar go for several hundred dollars up here. Definitely one that will be around long after we are gone.

The swivel jaw vise needs a tapered pin to hold parallel and remove it to clamp tapered parts.I think it is a REED brand. Here is a photo of a miniature Prentiss vise with a movable rear jaw

Fully reconditioned and ready for action! The reason I couldn't find any markings was because someone did a really nice job of grinding them off. I'll never know exactly what it is, but found several pictures Parker machinists vices that look very similar.

Thanks to Old Iron Bob for positively identifying this blue vice as a Reed. He had pictures with a nearly identical one.

Bleeding Hope X2 disc brakes with this sweet power bleeder set up. Perfection every time. My trusty old Schwinn is providing the air pressure.
