Thank you all very much for the help!

I ll notch out a piece of wood for that high center screw so that everything lays flat across bottom of vise.

Not sure thats really a good workaround, as you will need a different one for every possible thickness of wood you ever plan on using. Best bet is to just clamp it above and not worry about resting it on anything.



In most cases you clamp the workpiece near the top of the vise jaws anyway, for light, visibility and access.

If the workpiece needs more vertical support than clamping in the vise can provide, in most cases you are better served clamping it in place on top of the bench, not held in the vise.

Hopefully your WW vise has a pop-up dog in the moveable jaw, to use for holding work, against bench dogs or similar stops on the benchtop.
