I have a new toy!
It is a Millers Falls Jewellery Vice that someone has very kindly given me.
I look forward to having a play with it.
I have never seen one before.
The company Millers Falls Manufacturing Company started life back in 1868 in Greenfield Massachusetts, then was renamed Millers Falls Company in 1872. In 1962 it became part of Ingersoll-Rand. In 1982 it was sold to the newly formed MillersFalls Tool Company and since 2002 it has belonged to a Chinese company.
They made a wide range of planes and drills.
If anyone has any other information re my jewellery vice i would love to here about it.
