It had a metal plaque on it that read "Hallowell," so I looked it up online when I got home. Hallowell began making steel work benches in 1903. It was acquired by List Industries in 1992. The company is headquartered in Florida.
I was sad because I knew this was a gorgeous, mid-20th-century piece of good, American steel. But I have no place for it in my home, and I have no power tools to restore it to its former glory. So I left it, sorry to think about it going to a landfill somewhere.

I am thrilled to have made a match.
And to keep a venerable piece of American steel from going to the trash heap.
