Here's a cam locking vise that I designed and made out of Maple.

Cool! Any build pics? Are those two independent screw drives? Does the cam push against the thread stock or is that separate??

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Looks like the cam pushes the back jaw and the knob on the side locks the carriage?

Really neat looking vise!
Reminds me of one of Duckies puzzle toys, but NOT. Only thing it lacks are pneumatics. Nice work Rick.

Look good MrR... however, like RGi, any build or use happy snaps?

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD
