Cool! I guess I must live a sheltered life because I don't know anything about Charles Parker vice's. Vice, yes. D'oh!

But we did go into a restuarant one time in Woodland Ca. that had a plaque outside that said it was the original location of Byron Jackson machinery works. Surprised me because I always imagined BJ pumps was originated out your way. Never thought they might have started making farming machinery at a smithy in California's central valley.

He is talking about the folks that made this splendid old vise and many other things, including the highly prized Parker "field pieces". I never have seen one of those shotguns, but I do love my vise.

Rivet anvil Jack, it's steel and pressed in to the casting.
It was common on a lot of vises, my thinking is it was put there so dummys wouldn't break the casting using it as an anvil.
