In the latest issue of Methods of Work, FWM, Chris Gochnour showed his use of a wedge to keep the vise from racking when clamping a stock on one side of the vise. Very clever shop trick.
The wedge can be made with any scrap with power tools (a 5- to 10- minute job) or hand tools (a 15-minute+ job). You can nail or glue the top piece to the wedge; I cut a tapered wedge (friction fit) so it can be replaced if necessary.
