Description:
This is the patent for the York vise that was widely imported into the US after World War II. Meanwhile, York salesman Hugh W. Vogl, who was Jewish, fled Czechoslovakia for the USA where he patented much the same design for the new vise company he founded, Wilton Tool Manufacturing Co. (See patent D131,498.) Wilton reportedly also copyrighted the bullet-vise design and York had to modify their design before importing their vises into the USA.
