It would be an end vise. What made it a pain to use?

Though I’m not really clear on the differences between a front vise and end vise other than their position.
End vise is for clamping boards flat side up and front vise is for clamping them edge up?

I’m trying to build a multipurpose vise, but I suppose it’d be primarily for holding boards for planing.

For fun, I also designed a sort of block and tackle vise:

I think in theory using a bunch of pulleys and cable to tighten a vise would equalize pressure along the length.
But it’s probably outside my ability to attempt to build at this time.
