National Vise & Tool Co.

Camden / Woodstown, NJ - Articles of Incorporation were filed in Camden on 5/31/1900.  The November, 1902 edition of The Age of Steel announces a move of the works from Camden to Woodstown in order to enlarge their facilities.  Newspapers discount rumors of the move and the company's management claims it to be false.  The 1906 Industrial Directory for NJ places the company at Woodstown with 12 employees.

This article from the 10/25/1906 edition of American Machinist reports that the Peter A. Frasse & Company has purchased the patents, jigs, fixtures, patterns and machinery of the National Vise & Tool Co.  It also mentions that the company made Stevens vises, and Snediker rapid-acting and quick-release vises.  Peter A. Frasse & Company is listed as early as 1879 as manufacturers of Hardware.
