    Ahhhh, web induced video. Didn't open it to avoid potential nonsense ads, didn't need to open a 25 minute video to digest every element the still discloses.
    The old adage that one picture is worth 10,000 words [when often less then 1000 sufficient] proved again.
    Besides, that assemblage of 2 clamps and rod dimensions occupies a position too wide and high in the jaw for thin or parts of lower heights. And it only fits correctly on a very limited range of jaw thicknesses.
    [on edit] Crusty notes below a table mounted stop is ultimately more universal; absolutely valid. Jaw clamps by nature, suitable only for lightweight parts or careful handling of heavier items.

    I didn't like this one either. I prefer a stop which clamps to the table and can quickly be adjusted to just about anywhere in the milling area.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    My situation necessitated designing a somewhat different approach to work stops for the milling vise. If you're interested, a complete description is here...

    A different take on work stops
