The Bench vise looks like this now.
I cleared the outside from any part sticking out by reversing the clamps, as per swirt’s suggestion and the support of the outside jaw is on the sides now. Very happy with how it turned out – much better than the first version.
Very new to woodworking and am still putting together my apartment workshop. Built a very basic workbench, needed to add a removable vise. I got the idea of this vise from woodsmithtips newsletter and added the stops rail with the help of Vertigo to prevent the jaws from cambering when tightening the clamps to hold a piece.
If you are to build this vise, would you do it any different?
