B.B. Noyes & Co. Green River Swage Block:

From the John Catchings collection clearly showing the B.B. Noyes identification. The edge view shows an interesting feature, the partial hexes for dressing bolt heads. This provides both hexes and half rounds that can be used separately. This was not a common feature on industrial blocks.

Green River blocks were made by the Noyes Foundry Company, Greenfield, Massachusetts. Noyes made a variety blacksmithing equipment including the Greenfield Caulking Vise and Noyes drill presses.
