Atlas Vise Company

Lowville, NY - The December 29, 1921 edition of Steel announces the formation of the Atlas Vise Co. by E. W. Fulton, Foster M. Strickland, Henry Petrie, and H. W. Green, $25,000 capital.  The article also notes that they have also acquired the patent rights and trade names of the Velox Vise Co.  Finally, the article notes that vises are currently being manufactured by The Porter-Cable Machine Co. in Syracuse until a new factory is erected.  This incorporation notice from the 12/15/1921 edition of The Iron Age also includes G. L. Fulton as an incorporator.

This article from the January 26 edition of American Machinist describes the NUTYPE model vise.  The article explains it was formerly manufactured by the Fulton Machine & Vise Co. but is currently being produced by the Atlas Vise Company (likely manufactured by Porter-Cable).

Mr. Fulton apparently formed the NuType Tool Co. in 1930.  A 1922 edition of Automotive Industries appears to briefly mention this company.
