These are the two patterns for the #4 Fisher double screw vise. The patterns are sitting in their carriers. When used, the half was rammed up using special dedicated flasks. Then the whole assembly was flipped over, the carrier removed, and the other special flask half was attached. The second half was then rammed up. If you own a #4 Fisher Vise, it was made using this pattern. You might notice that the "tooth" is not on the front (left) pattern. In the later years, the pattern was modified and that part was eliminated. The front vise jaw was totally supported by the screws.
Ultra rare FISHER #1 Vise. This is the smallest double screw vise Fisher made. It originally sold for about $7, over 125 years ago. Worth a whole lot more today. This is the only COMPLETE #1 publicly known. The only non-original part is the handle. Weight is about 25 lb. I am sure that there are more hiding in someones basement or barn.
