This my version of the bench vise that was featured in volume 20, issue 120. The only changes I made were to imbed magnets in the jaw faces and back the replace-able jaws with 1/8” steel plate. One set of jaws is for holding round stock, the other set is faced with leather. I also added an oak end cap on the hub.
It’s designed to plop down into a bench dog hole and is easily removed out of the way when it’s….in your way.
The ACME threaded rod and nuts are available in shorter sections from McMaster-Carr online. No need to buy a full 4 foot section from them.
