I have the wood on hand. I think I can buy the rest for ~$30 retail.
If there’s a pre-built vise that’ll give me nearly a foot of travel (after accounting for jaws) for that price then I haven’t seen it.

The 20 TPI is just at the last inch or so of the guide rods and after they’re locked into place they don’t move.
And the actual pipe clamps I’m considering do have a crank as opposed to a pin.

Another design I’m considering is mounting a scissor jack to the table and fixing jaws to it somehow. Not sure how it’ll be with racking and wouldn’t have a quick release, but a lot less precision would be required in construction.
