I'll add a pic tomorrow as I'll use the new vise to mill the clocking tenons, the reason for the new vise was a its 6" but the original one when you do the vise up as its only 2" jaws a) it dosnt support bigger lumps for milling or drilling but b) you have to put a round bar between the slide side of the vise and your material as otherwise the vise can very slightly twist the item so when you mill the left to right is level but the front to back goes out when you tighten the vise if you don't put a round bar in, it even shows you to do this in the manual its a dam pain. It can then take 20 mins to setup a small item to cut as your trying to get the item level and keep the round bar in place and clamp the jaws without it all moving.
The new vise is far better and when you do up the jaws it dosnt twist the material so you can just clamp your material into the jaws rather than trying to stop with front to back twist.
