Above 3 excellent photos of an interesting small Parkinson’s Vise


Weight 2Żlb (approx. 1.2 kilos)

Jaw width – 2”

Jaw opening – 2”

Quick release jaw operation via lever at front. Operates an eccentric mechanism.

Castings and some of the steel parts are stamped “6” – presumably made as set.

The vise was rescued from the scrap bin by my late father, Charlie Fell, donkey’s years ago.

I seem to recall he told me it was a one off and this model was never put into production.

Surprising as it is a very useful and well made little item.

This  vise is now the property of Andrew Eatch who provided the photos.
