Closer Look

The vise spindle and nut are in a straight pull configuration where the nut is able to distribute the compressive load in all directions through the hardtail.

This is in contrast to most wedge nut designs where load is transferred as a shear force to a single point in the vise through a spindle nut that is wedged into the body.

Thrust bearings for smooth power transmission using large diameter lead screw.
