There's some history between Milwaukee Tool & Equip. Co. and [[Morgan]]. It seems Morgan originally was from Chicago, hence the Morgan Chicago vises. There are also Morgan Milwaukee labeled vise. I don't know if this is because the same "Morgan" moved at some point, or if these are two separate companies.
