The vice is fine. 1/16 tighter at the top is desirable, so when the vice wracks when tightened the moving jaw pulls square to the fixed face.
when you fit wood jaws they should be sanded hollow top to bottom mid jaw by the thickness of a postcard so the edges grip harder stopping workpieses from moving. Glue leather liner over the wood jaw and you will never see it.
