    Acme taps are expensive. I just used 1/2x13 threaded rod for my jack screw. Max travel on my bandsaw vise is 6 inches. But when I am not using the screw I take it out. Sometimes I take the handle off too. It isn't in by a long winded thread. Have some fun, and make a speed jack screw.

    Hello there pfred. I think I might just use that idea on my next vise.

    Cheers, Jr
