The clamp assembly is an antique Waterloo Valve Spring Compressor
Which if in working condition is much more useful than a socket being placed on the spring cap and hit with a hammer to dis-lodge the keepers.

I think mine came from Sears and R somewhere bout 1950.

Damn, whoever let that happen to a Palmgren vise deserves to be punched in the throat. Those are usually pretty pricey.
Cleaning it up is certainly worth doing but it will never recover from the damage.
It might still be useful as a drill press vise.

yes it looks pretty bad the guy my brother got it from with all that stuff from first of this post... is just sitting out in the open like an old road side flea market which was closed and its now all just piled in a big heap just going to waste.
my brother want me to go look at it all and see if there is anything worth while
which I might do after things slow down here in a week or two.
