    This beautiful thing followed me home today and is reputed to be as subject. It is not immediately obvious to me how it is used or even if it is complete. The main casting is screwed to the base and the lid lifts on hinges so its evidently intended to be used flat (or unscrwed and removed?). The "vice" lifts out and has no machined surfaces apart from the semi-circular "jaw".
    Anyone have any thoughts or experience. A manual would be manna.

    thanks for looking

    Looks like a dealers plate of Thomas P. Headlands. They are still going as TPH machine tools. A long shot but someone there might remember these and have some information on them?
