This fly press was manufactured by Norton, likely in Europe. This fly press originated in a blacksmith shop.
The massive iron frame is pierced by a heavy screw. The ram located at one end of the screw is raised and lowered; using weight, force and inertia these machines devise all sorts of tooling.
The original catalog listing for this fly press read:
Base to guide: 8 ¾"
Centre to back: 10"
Dia. of Screw: 1 13/16"
Bed Rings 1"
Across T Slots: 18"
Hole in base: 4 1/4"
Approx. Weight: 5 cwt."
Please note that this Norton press does exhibit some chipping in its T-Slots and the stop collar handle is broken off, tight.
