This is the smaller module of my vise quick release and I have installed it in my bench vise

I have added a link to the video that shows the build and function and I hope you enjoy .
This is a very straight forward build and can be a retrofit for almost any style of vise .

Hey Klaus. I am not sure what any of that means but it is cool. I will need to watch the second video.

Thanks for sharing all of your knowledge.

Do you release the threads by merely turning the vise counterclockwise?
... tightening by going clockwise?
