Wagon tongue vise ID

Recommended Posts

This vise only has half a maker's mark. Does anyone recognize it? I don't have a picture of the vise put together right now, but it's a wagon tongue vise.

I saw one where the fellow removed the rear mount entirely, and basically bolted an angle iron section to it and used that to bolt it to a table.

I would fip the section that goes around the wagon tongue so it still attached but pointing down and build a typical post cise  mount for it.  Perhaps with a support that engaged the bottom of the vise for greater strength.

I have a couple of the small vises that look like the top of a post vise but were used on benches; and without a leg on them.
