I made a Twin Screw Vise from scrap lumber. Works extremely well. Great for forming tenons and dovetails.

The threads are caked with pastewax and the turkeys are still coming.

Recently heard that petroleum jelly works well. Gonna give it a try.

Nice step up and build on the clamps. White lithium grease? Have had problem with sawdust and thick lubricants!

Some have suggested Vaseline. I tried this and it helped with the noise.

The garters are a good idea. It appears that they actively pull the vise open rather than just letting it go slack.
