Remarks                                 :


This tool is not listed in the 1889 catalogue.


I named this tool an “A10 3119”  just to give it a name.


The press lever is very genuinely a Dixon’s one. That’s why I called it the 3119

Also the top of the table screw is according the Dixon’s tradition.

I think, this is a tool made after 1947, the year that Dixon took over Hawksley.
