This is a brief post on the second version vise quick release mechanism I have developed and installed on this vise

And is more compact and and refined and suitable as a retrofit for many types of vise .

That is really slick, Klaus. I have a similar nut on a wood vice in my shop. It releases when you back it up and engages when you turn it forward. Very quick action to open it up!!

Cheers, Jim

Every time I see this, it just blows my mind…

It’s hard for me to SEE how you Change from Tightening the vise to letting it go & OPEN…

When I think I SEE it, I realize I don’t… and spin my wheels again… to no end…

It is, by far, the best one I’ve seen, and SO SIMPLE I can’t SEE how it works!

Very frustrating…

Thank you Kiefer for trying… You are the Greatest!

Absolutely love the simplicity. It appears the magic is due to the magnets and confined movement space of the metal parts. Brilliant.

Your work and effort is fantastic Klaus. I can see these being used in the future by many. Very simple yet very effective.

I can always appreciate something created adhering to K.I.S.S. design principles. In this section my favorites are finished projects made of WOOD!

This looks just the job for a quick release mechanism. Added to the enhancements list for my wooden vice.
Thanks for sharing.

This is fantastic. Wondering if it would work with a wooden screw and nut?

I think that the screw needs to be magnetic so that turning it makes the nut slide into our of position.

What is the thickness of each piece of UHMW? Thanks, once again, for sharing your ingenuity with us.

- Northwest29

Starting from the end with the bushing
5/8” – 3/4” – 1/2”
The only layer that is imported is the 3/4 because of the thickness of the nuts which are just under 3/4”the other two can be what ever thickness and good plywood (BALTIC BIRCH ) would also work for this .

I have quite a bit of 3/4” UHMW plastic known as Starboard. If anybody is interested in small pieces to make this, send me a PM and we’ll work something out.
