Globe Vise & Truck Company

Grand Rapids, MI - Founded by Stephen and William Vanmanen ca. 1907 (Catalog #8 is 1915).  However, we did find what appears to be a potential proposal in March of 1905 to the U. S. Navy.

Here is an interesting account of Mr. Zimri Seth Mastin in the Sixth Biographical Record of the Class of 1869, Yale College, 1868-1894 noting he bought out Globe Vise & Truck Company of Chicago in approximately 1870.

Here is an excellent review of the Globe Cabinetmaker's Vise from Wood Craft of 1907 (see Image 2 below)

The company is still listed in the U. S. Industrial Directory in 1980.  Final disposition is unknown.  Note that "truck" refers to factory floor hand trucks.
