The weight of the front jaw DOES cause it to sag as it is opened farther and farther from the rear jaw. I know, as mine does exactly that. I actually put wood shims near the inside of my bench top to help prevent this from occurring. This forces the screws to remain closer to horizontal, at least during the closest 3 inches or so, where most of my use occurs.

Plus you need to re-read your OP. The taper is to be 7/32” NOT 7/16”
