If anyone is interested, I have 3 self centering typeholders made by W.O.
Hickock for sale. Two of them open 5" between the jaws, the third opens 6".
They are in good used condition, except that they lack the small center
thumbscrew bracket. I called Hickock to see if perhaps they had the brackets,
but they are no longer making the typeholders. It was suggested that a
machinist could make the bracket up; I'll send a drawing if desired. Price is
$100 for each of the 5" typeholders, $120 for the 6". Please contact me off
the list at the address below.
