Here's a Zenith Z-5C I picked up a while back that was made by Vaughan & Bushnell. Looks similar to and early bedrock frog and seat except the seat is hollow in the middle. Needs some restoration but should clean up well.

Marshall Wells: Duluth, MN hardware store with the Zenith brand name on a tool line made by various manufacturers under contract. Later became ACE hardware, iirc. I have a Zenith 12" brace with a Fray chuck that will fit the fat 3/8" to 1/2" square shank tools.

Now you know pretty much everything I do.
