I’m curious about this vertical twin screw thing because I had the same thought. If you actually try (or tried) this, let me know. I have a rickety bench with two vices that would be taken and installed on a new one that I build. The idea was to do a leg vise and get an old bike chain and gears to incorporate.

I had similar questions/concerns and was looking for a way to better control racking for long vise on end of my workbench. There are some limitations to large vice using chain interconnect that I wanted to avoid.
My project page posts shows how I used (2) refurbished Wliton quick release vises to create a “crazy” solution.

Design of a work bench can be a very personal choice, Best Luck.
