Cute little saw vise.

And, ooooohhhhh, I like that Millers Falls vise...you could say I have a clamp-on vise vice, and I don't see swiveling clamp-on vises often.

Anyone recognize the Box M on the saw vise?

I have that little vise--minus the M.  Is it really a saw vise?  Isn't it too shallow?

I believe that those small vises that look like saw vises were harnessmaker's for holding leather straps, etc.

Leather working small vise; that's what I have been told.
But I suppose it can be used for anything that will work for it.
The jaws have lots of wobble to them.
