They were using the Pexto mark in 1920 for sure, as it shown on a catalog of that year.  How much before that I don’t know.

Hello, Mike. Thanks for the reply, and the Patent info! I believe the Colt clamps were made in Batavia, NY, so they seem to pop up here in Syracuse. The guy that sold them to me didn't know what they were, so after I paid him, I put the clamp on the corner of one of his tables, ( with his permission) and  it held there nicely!! Good guess on the Drill Press!! From my research so far it looks like a Millers Falls No. 22 Universal Drill Press/Stand. Adaptable to their hand drills, 2 or 3 of the MF Hand Drills will work with the No.22.

Hi Lou,
You did good!! Really good.
Those “V” shaped corner clamps are not common. They were a patent by J. L. Taylor, November 30, 1909, no. 941,825.

The Colt patent was 792,758, issued June 20, 1905.

I had one pair of the Taylor’s, the only ones I had ever seen until yours. They bring a decent price on the ‘bay. I have yet to run across any of the Colts.

Who made the little Drill Press? My first guess would be Goodell-Pratt then Millers Falls.

Hello, Al. Yes the Colt clamps have the round cam. That set of small box wrenches is Indestro.

Are the Colt clamps the ones with the round cam?  I have a similar clamp at work and it has been very useful.  What make are the box end wrenches, Lou?
