This tool is 7" long and 4" high. It has no markings, just stenciling on the sides like you would see on a sewing machine. I am guessing that it has something to do with sewing. It has mounting holes for wall or table mount, there are two moveable wire bails on the moveable jaw and two iron studs on the stationary jaw. I know someone will know it`s use!

    Ebay says you have an "Antique, Cast Iron, "Daisy' Business Card, Hand Printing press"! Nice Find!

    You are Very Welcome! Here is one more link for you, as it seems these were made by at least 3 or more companies.

    Yeah frisco, I saw that link, there are no markings on this press, not even a number. So I guess it could be any maker.

    Thanks Windwalker! It`s funny that this came back up, I thought I sold it last year but just the other day my wife was upstairs in the garage and found a box with this in it!
