The jaws are marked with Billings' 1894 patent for a hand vise designed for jewelers and toolmakers, but it's mounted as a bench vice. We've seen a couple of these and it was definitely manufactured, probably by Billings & Spencer. Japanning mostly worn off but works smoothly and rust free. A rare vise.

Binkerd of Allegheny, PA, marked with the name and patent date, as well as incorrectly marked 7/29/95 for the self-fastening mechanism (correct date is 7/16), this was manufactured by L.D. Gunn of Pittsburgh and marketed as a portable saw vise that is easily folded for storage or transport. This one was clearly used often as it has many file marks in the edge of the clamp, but the padding on inside of one jaw is intact, and it's a clean example of an uncommon patented vise.

ARNOLD LONDON keyhole saw. 26" blade, 6 tpi, nib, open handle with split nuts. Marked "Arnold London." There were a couple of sawmakers named Arnold in London prior to 1850 and this is clearly old.
