It might look old because it (they) were. I bought all the stuff in the early 80s. They were still in use in the factory and were of course all greasy and shiny when I bought them. The image is of the one that I placed in my workshop. It was only used once in a blue moon and if it hadn't have been for the knowledge of my Father-in-Law, who was a tool setter, I wouldn't have had a clue how to use it. I sold mine many years later to a chap who exported it to the Yemen and when his man collected it I had forgotten how heavy it was. I could just about lift it with pallet forks on a 3CX. I thought that only race horses and pedigree cattle were sold for Guineas ?
