Remarks                                 :


The press lever has been badly rust pitted. So badly, that the brand mark is nor readable any more. This tool is not depicted in the 1882 or the 1883 catalogue.


Paul Collis shows a similar tool, but doesn’t tell what catalogue number it has. It looks like an “X “ number, but is however not the same as UK DIXON BC 3119X or UK DIXON BC 3119X-1


Another amazing thing is, that these tools have a press lever no 6. The other 3119 tools have a lever no 5. So you would expect a no 5 lever at this tool. There is already a “X” model with a no 6 lever, the 5119X.


So if someone has a UK DIXON BC 3119X or UK DIXON BC 3119X-1 with Dixon’s catalogue number stamped on it, please send me a clear photograph.
