Have recently bought an old fly press 

It has a casting on the front which I haven’t seen before , Must have been used for something 

Can anyone shed any light on it please

It looks like it may take a swage block or is there a corresponding hole in the top.

Will check tomorrow & update post

The slotted hole in the 2nd picture and the slot above it at the top in  the last picture is definitely to put a tie bar/rod in to strengthen the press frame.
