One of my vices is vises: Western Auto "Wizard"


Image snagged from eBay.  A nice little 3-1/2" vise, Model  4H4836 Wizard.  The seller opined that this might have been made for the company by the Columbian Vise & Manufacturing Company of Cleveland..

"Wizard" was Western Auto's major brand.

The company died something of a slow death.  Surprisingly, its corporate descendants still find it necessary to deny any responsibility for warranty claims on old Wizard-brand tools!
