Made of scrap wood, this rocker jaw allows your regular vise to function more like a Tucker Vise (,41659&p=31143).

I saw this trick from the May 2012 issue of American Woodworker.

I’ve been thinking of building one of these for years. I’m still waiting for a good use of it though. Yours looks nice. Thanks for sharing your work.
