Topic tags/keywords: wilton vise

Does anyone recognize this Wilton vise? I went to their website and they no longer show it. Looking at it, it appears that you could mount this so you could have a face vise and leg vise. Is that right?

Either orientation in mounting it there are only two mounting bolt hole into the workbench top. The other two mounting holes would be at 90 degrees. In the photo below you can only see one of the mounting holes; the other is directly behind the back plate.

The sliding stop can be moved to the other side. Any help with this is appreciated!

I think I have the same vise.
Dose it have the number 161137-10 on the stationary jaw? Mine also has 161072-10 on the handle, but I think this casting was used for other models as well.
On a 2 1/8 thick work bench, yes, you could use only two holes.
But by adding 2 1/8 blocking under the work bench, you can use all four.
