Of all the problems that need to get solved, it would appear the simplest is proving the hardest.
I have been given what looks like a new condition Irwin vice, Which to me is really a record quick release vice.
Problem is when vice is tightened, it doesn't grip.
I googled this, and even compared the quick release with another vice I have.
The only obvious problem I could see was the flat steel strip that holds the dog down, and activates the release, was twisted as opposed to the one I have that works which is straight, or flat.
So, I straightened it, but it hasn't cured the problem. Anyone got any ideas where the real problem lies ?
