So, it’s a twin screw vise installed vertically?

Looks like a well fit rod to me.

You are right, Topamax. I looked again carefully and it is a well fit rod. Nice idea. The only drawback is that pinned vise (or twin screw for that matter) allow some slop on purpose to clamp out of square items.

To actually be on-topic this time, shouldn’t a vise like this have a protective pin in order to protect the wooden screw itself? I know that my Veritas twin screw vise recommends these pins (even though I chose to not include them because the screws are steel). Just wondering why this is not even mentioned…

A pattern makers vise would float my boat. I like the
versatility of them and the holding strength they
produce.

Does anyone have the Tilt Adjustment Mechanism
for an Emmerts Pattern Makers vise? I know they’re
on ebay, I was wondering if someone has one and wants
to get rid of it.

Thanks for the spelling lesson Mike. I just went back and changed “vice” to “vise” about 500 times in my three project posts and their associated blogs , videos and sketchups detailing my V8 Bench concept.
The annoying thing is that I immediately knew you were right….. I knew better!

Vises are vices to some on here ;-)) I certainly wasn’t talking about spelling!

David, No, I’m not at war with the English. We beat them twice, then came to save them once ;-)

Mike, I have always wondered why there isn’t something to protect the wooden screw threads, but I have never seen one that had any protection.
