Disston 3D Saw Vise
I thought I had a Disston #2, but it's actually a Stearns as I look close, Aug 22, 1899 patent date.

It has an metal extension along the back, about 1/2" wide and is 16" long.

The vise is 10-1/2" long, so the flat bar extends almost 6" past the jaws. Not sure what it was for, if it had some type of filing device on it, or what...it clamps on my desk and the c-clamp is better than the 3D clamp. I've had 2 or 3 other saw vises, I think I sold them at a Bay Area Galoot event. That could be where I bought the Stearns...

Those D-2 and D-3 vises are quite different than the 3D. Disston also acquired so many companies that had saw related tools, so some of those could be acquisitions that Disston branded as their own after the fact...the megalomaniac wheels were in motion...
Geometry was the most critical/useful mathematics class I had, and it didn't even teach me mathematics.
