Producing high-quality bench vises.

The Beginning 

M. Yost Manufacturing Co., was a renowned and established manufacturer of nut-facing machines in Waynesboro, PA, in 1906. The company's change of product lines began in early 1907 with the purchase of the Snediker vise plant in Yonkers, NY. Yost moved all the plant's machinery to Mechanicsburg, PA, to begin operations there. The brand also bought rights to the Snediker and Stephens vise patents and built a new plant in Meadville in 1908. Yost initially produced machinists' leg and bench vises, but by 1910 were making the Yost Universal woodworkers' vise. By 1930, the name of the company was changed to Yost Manufacturing Co.
