Takedown squares were made by a lot of folks over the years. I've had
them by P S & W and Pexto, Twix, Sargent had one, Stanley, and there
were a number of smaller makers as well.  Long time ago, there was a guy
at the one flea market that used to collect them and would bring some of
his duplicates to sell.  I have a C E Jennings here that I can't get the
joint fitted back together, which I need to get back to at some point as
well as doing some cleaning on.
