Glendale Junction in England supply Hillman Type Bridge Clamps. These have been produced for Glendale by presumably a local Engineering Artisan.Yes, reference the OP's OP when asking what the thread is about ha ha!
His question was about types 1 and 2, type 2 is split-jaw/hillman types, which are both with SS socket head cap screws (the allen type of socket) although Hillman and SJ use/used different allen sizes. I have the ball end drivers in both sizes.
Hillman used to make the nicest lift-out bridge clamps, and some nice nickel plated end of track bumpers. Did not like their clamps much, the square groove caused more stress risers and they cracked more often.
