Not sure which is the best place to post this as I guess a vise is a hand tool but it’s also often an accessory as well. I recently bought this rotating paternmakers vise as I needed something light duty in my apt to work on saws. The price was right and it seemed it would work for both my needs in a small space but sadly I can’t seem to prevent the vise from turning in the mount. The problem seems to be the aluminum collar. It looks like on the later model they changed the way the turret clamps down. From what I can figure the aluminum collar is drilled slightly off center and when tightened jams against the rotating turret. It also looks like at some point this was drilled or through use wore out. I can get a new one made but not having one that does work I’m kind of chasing my tail.
Anyone who has background on this later style tightening system I’m love some feedback.
thanks in advance
