That seems to be a good deduction. It looks a lot like the Early Irons that were being sold on eBay for a while there. They all had that stamped in E.I. if my memory serves me correctly. Cool looking machines but I could never find any reviews of how they run.

I don't think it was because of where the recess for the screw head on the tube vise is located.

the way that back spring is raised up by a (shim/washer/whatever?) is kinda poor geometry on that frame...i wonder if you would have problems with that back spring breaking, it already has a weird forward bend. ive seen people tattoo with worse though!

The geometry "looks" correct. But it seems whoevehands it had no clue what's going on and shimed the rear spring..the coils are probably the wrong size or a they are shimmer and need to be lowered
