Remarks                                 :


This is a tool that doesn’t carry the name : “DIXON”. The press lever only carries “12”

It is one of the multiple tools, that carry the shield “E.M. REILLY & Co PATENTEES”. It is not clear what this really means. Not all Reilly tools are the same. This one has a press lever no 6. The tools no 1201-5 and 1201-6 have a press lever no 5. Apart from that all the Reilly tools are ordinary ones.


The special thing about this tool is that the front of the barrel has an opening at the underside. An opening that goes down to the top of the table clamp. No other Dixon tools have that.
