I don’t have experience with that, but I did just get the Yost vise screw last week for my bench build for a face vise. It looks basically exactly like the screw in that tail vise, just with a nut. The machining is so-so. What I did was take wet-dry sandpaper and wrap it around the screw and spin it through all over. Then took a fine file and filed all the corners of the threads to get rid of the burs, then went over the same corners with wet-dry paper. And used the wet-dry and my finger to clean up the inside of the nut as well. I spent about an hour doing this, but the screw goes in and rotates MUCH smoother than when I got it. Also, the little rolled pin that connects the handle T to the screw is junk and is going to be replaced with something solid. Some of the reviews on the screw I got mention that pin breaking under load. Let me know how it works as I may add that later on if I feel I need one.

Did you see this video on using the Lee Valley version
