Just a little easy fix to hold the vise handle in position in the yoke .
All it is is a little round foam pad cut from a counter mat that fits inside the spindle hole of the yoke and when the handle is inserted into the yoke I can put the handle in any position and it will stay there .
I thought of cutting a groove in the centre of the handle and use a ball catch but then I thought I try this first and it works just fine .

You are always thinking…
Did you glue the foam inside the yoke or is it just held in by friction?

Thanks Guys.
Greg the foam pad is held in the round hole for the spindle just by friction no need for glue .
Nice and simple .

Thanks for posting.

Good going Klaus, but I gotta admit… When I saw that first picture, I thought you had made a double-sided toilet paper holder!
