    Just browsing your armourer’s tools section:

    I have a slightly different version of the SMLE barrel vice sitting on my bench.

    It is marked:

    VICE (sic) NO.13
    on both parts.
    Oddly enough, the “top” block is also marked “22” as is the little tongue insert that engages the “flat” on the Knox Form.

    It will ONLY fit a standard barrel, although somebody has had a go at “relieving” it to accept Lithgow “H” barrel. It will NOT accept a No4 barrel at all.
    What I am looking for it any information on the bench plate and clamping arrangements.
