    The Wilton vise is most likely not quick release because of the handle on it. The Columbia vise could very well be a quick release vise but you will only be able to tell after it is put together correctly and it will be a quarter turn counter clock wise then release. Very cool stuff Miller!! What a freaking haul!!!!!

    So not all quick releases had slotted screws?

    I've been pretty busy lately so haven't been "hunting". I did make a fleabay purchase however and it arrived today. It was dear but I think worth every penny! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    This one has a temperers mark? I recall seeing this somewhere on a Kelly but I cannot remember where. [​IMG] [​IMG] overlaid bit and made "the old fashion way". You can see where the two steels meet if you look closely. [​IMG]
    I'll be filling the etch(or stamp I'm not sure which it is) with Stiletto's off white before I cold blue it. I've got a real dark and nice 31" haft picked out too. I'm going to go get started!

    That is definitely an axe that inspires a project!

    On my bench now I have a vintage 10” Columbia Vise with a slotted screw which I believe is their “rapid action” Vice and I also have a vintage 7” (I think) Sheldon vise that is a quick release but does not have a slotted screw. The nut is a half nut and it works like a wedge when it is tightened. Works really well. You have to be carefully purchasing them though because that half nut is a brass or bronze part and if you don’t really check it it may have been worn down so much that it won’t even bite on the screw. But I use my Sheldon everyday. It’s probably my most used tool!

    I have cooked them, boiled them, used chemicals like oven cleaner ect, and this is what happens after a few days in full strength Simple Green. A quick flattening and dressing and they cut great.

    It is strange isn't it.. Doesn't seem to be any rhyme nor reason to where the stamps were placed or when. Here's my worlds finest connie with an overlaid bit; 15629759957027217289241194542163.jpg But here I found that similar temperers mark in front of the eye from a post '49 TT flint edge; 15629761545223692924674670827607.jpg Here again are the temperers mark(s) from the stiletto; 1562976327210434109002708722335.jpg
    I think they are the same mark just one is worn more than the other. Keeps us guessing! Part of the fun i guess. If it were easy it wouldn't keep us engaged.

    yes prices were a bit higher on some items and then fair on others but still leaves me room to make a few dollars-some are keepers...

    Is it possible that it was actually made by TT?

    Overall, it certainly looks the part. If it were unmarked, I probably would have assumed it was a Woodslasher by shape and build.

    May I ask how you know it's a pre-70's craftsman? Is it the stamp?? I'm still working on figuring out the craftsman time line in my head.

    It's the pointed A which changed to a barn roof A on Craftsman tools in the late 60's.
