Workbench build #1: Rockler heavy duty front vise

09-23-2016 11:16 PM by curliejones | 5 comments »

The vise that Rockler sells for a quick release front vise tagged item no. 27838 is painted black. I bought one today that was never installed but the guy had misplaced the two nuts on the front. Anyone know the size and thread pitch of these two? I doubt you had to buy these since they came with the vise, but I thought I’d ask??They look to be 1/2” threads and fairly coarse, but a std. 1/2×13 nut does not work. It begins to bind when only halfway threaded on. I am hoping that the threads are at least a std metric thread and not something only available through the vise mfgr. I called Rockler and they were not helpful; simply “did not know”. Thanks in advance.
