I wish to build a tail vise using the Shop Fox D3258 Bench Screw (Link to Amazon).
This bench screw comes with the screw itself and the cast-iron mount for moving the block in the table, however it does not come with a way to secure the handle to your bench, presumably because there are so many potential ways of executing the mounting.
Someone mentioned in a forum elsewhere that one could fashion a wooden washer to hold the piece in place, but I'm not sure how one would execute that.
My question is: given an inner diameter of approximately 1", with a slot approximately 1/4", what is the best way to produce a washer or garter out of hardwood that could hold the bench screw from unscrewing out of the vise? Should I get 1/4" stock, jigsaw two crescents and then screw them together over the slot in the bench screw?
