      A patent (I'm not sure if this is the right one):

      These are industry-standard clamps for any serious woodworking shop and have been for many decades, during which their 'bulletproof' design hasn't changed much at all. I know we've got a few dozen of various sizes at the shop, nearly all of which are probably as old as I am (some more!) where they are just crucial tools to get the job done. I don't know anything about how to officially "date" them, except by judging the amount and nature of their inevitable scars and wear marks...?
