The eBay one looks a bit like this style but with a replacement anvil section.
This one isn't mine.
It's exactly the same as a modern Swindens, even down to the crappy alignment key. The main section with anvil looks to have been milled from a...
I'd say about 3" jaws and weighing about 16-17 lbs .....
I believe the bottom is a number 8 and the rest are number 7's
That's a really difficult one, probably be the Record 114 because it's one of the biggest strongest quick release....... but then maybe the Record...
