    A Vise Jack

    Light weight vises do not clamp small parts well. The movable jaw tilts which then does a poor job of holding the part. One solution is to add a jack screw to one end of the vise jaws.

    Thatīs what I often do. Clamp one of my small vises in one of my bigger vises. Works well.
