    ID this vintage repair stand

    can anyone ID the manufacturer of this type of repair stand? i'd love to have one but don't know how to go about searching for it. they look incredibly stable. I have a Cyclus repair stand which supports the BB and I like this concept. Looks like Cyclus got the idea from these classic stands.

    thanks and happy new year everyone!

    edit. upload went wrong. here are the pics.

    with a bit of help from an ebay seller, i now know the stands in the second pic are from the late 1800s to early 1900's! they are cast iron and were manufactured in Norwich, England. One notable company was called Willbro.
