I recently purchased a beautiful old bit brace. The brace has Amidon jaws just like the ones here-
and here (on the right)-
My question- did Amidon jaws use some sort of spring mechanism? I am thinking the answer is no. If that is the case, were the jaws just left to flap around loosely when there was no bit in place?
Also, the jaws are someone damaged. Does anyone know if reproduction or replacement Amidon jaws are available anywhere? Or if there is another type of jaw that might be somewhat universal and may work in this brace?
