How to deal with a lop-sided load on a vise

I made a simple Screw Jack by screwing a bolt into a Hexagonal Connector Nut (the sort that are used for joining two pieces of studding).
Obviously, the minimum space is the (length of nut + thickness of head of bolt) but it can be made as large as needed by using longer bolts.
I tidied it up by putting a taper on the top of the Connector and turned the top of the bolt round and knurled it (but mostly because I had made a knurling tool for my Taig Lathe and wanted to use it!).

The jaws of one of my woodworking vice twist, but I find it useful for holding pieces don't have parallel sides. It is a vice that I rescued 50 odd years ago, refitting the metalwork into 2 old oak (really hard) blocks. It does seem to have got looser over the years.
