A while back I purchased a (Stanley) Victor SW brace to go in my no. 902 SW toolbox, because I was striking out on finding a straight Stanley SW brace. Well, I was able, recently, to get the correct brace, a Stanley SW 945 with an 8" swing on ebay. However, the Victor, in my opinion, has a jaw housing with a far nicer patina (that goes very well with the other tools in the box) than the Stanley does. So..seeing as how the SW logo is stamped on the jaw housings, I figured I would just swap the housings. To my suprise, they are interchangable, but different. The Victor has a finer checkering, and the jaws are not sprung, as they are on the Stanley. In taking a picture illustrating this, I also noted that the rachet assembly is different between the two. Trivia, I realize....but hey, it doesn't take much to amuse me. (Pics...the Stanley is in the foreground.)

It could also be a difference in vintage instead of line offerings.

Yes, although the SW logo on both pieces is the same generation SW logo.
