Not uploaded pic to this forum yet have downsized, so hope this comes through.
Acquired this from family of a true craftsman who had two large workshops at home - there were two of these, so just possibly used as a pair? He sadly now has dementia and cannot tell us.
The bolts and plain bracket were attached, also the, piece of hardwood was in the slot, so I show it with and without.
It's sitting on a Record no 2 for scale and the Jaws are 4" square opening about 3". The bodies are fine quality castings, and the tolerances close enough for no wiggle.
As you see, two bosses at the back and slot for beam at front, also 4 unthreaded, countersunk holes in rear jaw.
Is it part of some other kit?
Or for a specialist user? The other tools in the workshops were fine but all identifiable.
