I've had this old blacksmith's vise for years. It's my only actual anvil, so it comes in handy for that reason. There are no manufacturer's marks on it anywhere.
This weekend, I put on an exhibit of old tools at the Bedford Historical Society's annual open house. The exhibitor next to me was John McKenty, who had a display of CCM stuff (see my previous post--I was able to buy a copy of his book on CCM history from him). He was also researching the history of a Perth, Ontario hardware manufacturer and supplier named James & Reid. He had an early catalogue from the company. Below, one of the pages, and voilà--there's my vise! Another mystery solved!
