Love it. Don’t know anything about it, but love it.

I’d bet that vise was once part of a book press.

I’ll second the book press notion. It sure looks like the top portion of one. Ya gotta love the wheel with four handles. It’ll make you wonder if you’re adjusting your vise or sealing off the Titanic’s Boiler Room…. LOL. GREAT VISE, and you can be sure all the visitors to your shop are gonna be jealous ! Not everyone has such a purdy vise.

I was in Boston a couple weeks ago and visited some museum and that does remind me of some printing press stuff I saw there!
