Chevy vise

Recommended Posts

Ok, no secret here that it’s a small hobby vise. The question is its origin; was it some type of Chevy give-away item for a mechanic or sales award? There have been one or two on eBay but none have had any background story on it.  

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like an old Craftsman vacuum vise with Chevy sticker. 

 

Guessing the jaws are off due to the poor lightweight design, probably an import as suggested.

 

Can you post a photo of the bottom ?

Several just like it have shown up on eBay so I don’t think it’s a one off creation and with the vacuum base it’s not old.  My son uses it for his hobby projects and we both were wondering if it was a Chevy give away item.
