    Circular vise? What is it?

    Seller called it a “circular vise”says it
    may have been used for rebuilding
    air brakes. Looks like it may be useful
    as some sort of welding fixture.

    Looks like the top of a turntable. Worth looking into.

    it appears to be a six station production jig mounted on a face plate of a lathe. also looks like it's standing on legs rather than being a lazy susan type.

    So, would a circular vice be another name for a circle Jerk?

    OK, it’s a total wild at guess, but that looks like some sort of fixture for working on clutch pressure plates. Might be of some use to somebody wanting to build a rotary positioned. DUNNO but puzzles like this beat the hell out of the Sunday crossword.
