This Vise is worked entirely by the foot and is admitted by all who have used them to be the best and, strength, saving of time and convenience considered, the cheapest vise in use. For sale by QUINCY & DELAPIERE, 72 John st New York; Geo. H. Gray & Co. Boston; Curtis & Hand, Philadelphia; Way & Brothers, Hartford; and by the proprietor, J. S. GRIFFING, New Haven, Ct."
