Quick-Release Rear Jaw

Quick-Release Rear Jaw This quick-release allows you to rapidly open or close the jaws of the benchtop vise in Issue No. 71. It works just like the quick-release mechanism on a manufactured bench vise. Instead of turning the handle of the vise, all you have to do is flip a lever and slide the rear jaw to where you want it. Then flip the lever back to lock the jaw in position. This supplementary article is available to download in this Online Extra. (See download link above)
