Here is the video link

Every front/bench vise I ever looked at has a problem with racking when clamping a piece near the end of the chop and I thought there must be a way to overcome this .
I tried a few what I thought would be a solution other then a spacer as I wanted a built in solution and this is the proto type and it works well as you can tell from the pictures the jaws stay parallel to each other when a piece is clamped .I will post a video later today on YOU TUBE and post the link here to demonstrate the action rather then try to explain it here .
Any questions and comments always welcome .
Be patient as it takes a bit to upload a video .
There are also several videos on my YOU TUBE page including my leg vise V2which I am very happy with .
Here is the link to the post which includes the link to the V2 video

Very nice! Strong parallel rods with snug, but not overly snug, bushings would be the answer. Nice work.

Great idea! Think the only solution for my vise would be to make it a foot shorter!

I.m on vacation now and could not see the hole video. But when I’m home I certainly will do Klaus. I also will make a clamp try on my new look a like Emmert.

Hi Klaus. Your addiction with vises will some day be the standard of all bench vises on the market. I have to give you a lot of praise for the improvements you have done. Excellent work.
This last video was starting to look very professional. I was waiting for some pop-ups. ha ha

Ingenious this is the first time I’ve seen the video on the leg vice. Are there plans available?

Thanks guys for the comments and interest in this prototype vise which is an idea in progress but it works so well right now that I thought I would post it but don’t worry I won’t stay idle as I love innovation and progress when it comes to tools .

This is a wonderful design Klaus. It solves the inconvenience of having to use spacers and the lack of stiffness in your quick release system makes life a little easier too.
