Seeking information about my bench vise.


I have a bench vise that I really like and am hoping to be able to find another one of the same type:-

It has initials on the side but I have no idea what they stand for:-

Here is the other side showing the swivel base:-

If you can give me any information about this, I would really appreciate it.
TIA.
Lewis.

Thanks, I appreciate the 'heads up'.
Let me try again:-

Dang, could you increase the image density a little????!!! :)
W/ dialup it took about 10 minutes to load enough to see anything useful.
Nice vice; but sorry, no clue. Don't suppose there are any casting markings underneath?

Thanks for looking.
Sorry about the size of the pix, I thought PhotoBucket scaled them to a size that would be 'friendly' for everyone.
Kind regards.
Lewis.

I have no idea. It may well be from a company that went out of business many years ago. If you can't find one, Wilton is a good brand but we bought a couple of vices from Northern Took and they are holding up well at half the price of a Wilton.

Just a wild donkey guess here----
It looks like a backward "F", a "P", and a "U" at the bottom. My thinking was a company called something like: United Forged Products Unionville Forged Products Forged Products Of USA Underwood Forged Products Forged Products of <insert city here> I tried a couple of others, but no luck.
Tired a trademark search for UFP, FUP, and FPU, but no hits like your marks.
BTW: my cheap bench vice is a casting, and if yours is a forged vice, the vice should be a lot better. The forge hammer does make a difference, but more expensive. The Photos showed a well made vice.
