    What a name for a vise "Nippy" lol.
    Unsure as to size of yours, but I have one with identical features throughout. It's Eclipse. I recall one marked Record. All are British addresses.

    It's hard to justify ring gauges for infrequent use.
    Thread mikes are very acceptable, but have limited range,

    That stamping is naught but an adapter; a slot size they like to cut, coupled to a narrower bolt they can buy.
