As I said on another thread I didnt like the Zyliss vice crank handle when used on a bench like mine that goes wall to wall with no bench ends.
So I came up with this simple idea.

Nice fix Ken. Don't the clamps get in the way that way up?.

Very nice mate. Now that I think about it, I remember that my Zyliss vise has a quick release button on the jaw that moves so I wouldn't have the problem if my bench was as big and manly as yours.

Where did you source the threaded piece? I guess you made it from a solid lump of aluminium but maybe you found it somewhere this time.

No threads ..just a friction push fit.

You have a first iteration of the Zyliss vice Ken. As Sven correctly has identified, later models have a quick release nut :)
