Info request about a Kinsley I&M vise

Recommended Posts

Hello IFI friends,

I just recently acquired a 6 1/4" jaw Kinsley I&M Canton Mass vise with foot pedal for grabbing material in the jaws. I have searched for info about this vise and come up pretty short. If there is anyone who has or knows much about this vise please let me know. How old? What was its purpose designed for? 

Cheers and happy metal working

Paul

Very interesting version of a "calking vice".  Look that up in google images and you'll see other versions--although this one is a similar style, it's meant for a different use.  Have you tried the site http://toolarchives.com/node/3409 which has a n old ad of a similar vice by them as well as the company history?

I didn't read well enough--the folsom locking vice is for shoing.
