I have been planning "Multipurpose vise" for a while.
Here it is:
Video about making electric hydraulic jack and adds & attachments comes later
Btw. I tried little different editing style. Indtead of speeding up the video. I made it shoter by showing "present" and the next step at the same time.
If you watched the video, it would be nice to hear "did it work"?

That half nut is a winner in my book. A toolmaker vise with quick secure hold is way different than a blacksmith or mechanics vise that gets beat, torqued, flame cut and who knows else.
Woodworkers get the picture, but the flush jaws don't help us.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
I just designeg this to improve regular bench vise on the home workshop. It can be used when you want to clamp something without leaving marks to it, or with higher force when it doesn't matter if workpiece gets scratched or not.
Half nut solutions are just too weak when using more power. ( Clamping heavier parts etc )
This allows to change different "tooling' for to make bends, clamp round / square tubings, ring rollers.. etc. To allow easier / faster upgrade & different uses.
But, these are just my toughts. All that i can do here, is to share my toughts. Someone else things different way, or different tasks.
It would have made video too long to show all possibilities.
That's why part 2 comes later, of course some possibilities are the ones that needs to be imagined by the viewer itself.
I have seen so many "ultimate" welding tables & workbenches.. none of them have been suitable to my needs. So, i think there's no way to make anykind of "ultimate" anything that would be perfect for every user.
This is my "ultimate welding table"
Would be little overkill for most, and too small for some.
Lifts 38000 kg from 70cm to 240cm.
Turns around 360 degrees.
At home i use just whatever flat surface i found.
Just an example of different needs. Best option is to hit the middle section, i think?
