Leland apparently made the clamps that he used as a cabinet maker. The modern abbeviation for Massachusetts is MA.
It is not known who had the initials:
Notice the flat chamfer, narrowing as it
proceeds along the slope. This is characteristic of Bliss and
Company in Pawtucket, and Grafton is along the river and
canal that flow from Worcester through Pawtucket.
The only specimen in my collection has two stopped spindles, with lathe cut threads. This is very unlikely for a user as early as Leland, and I conclude they joined the jaws later.
The specimens in the Old Sturbridge Village repository were not available to be photographed when I saw them.
