I have a Columbian Quick Release woodworking vise, and I am seeking help on how it goes together, specifically the Quick-Release mechanism. I don’t know which way it goes in or exactly where it fits in under the vise. I have searched the net and have not found a QR Vise that looks like mine. Whew! It seems as though there are many different mechanisms out there.

I am posting a few pics of the vise. If more are needed for help, let me know and I’ll take more.

I have solved the problem. After a bit more searching on the net, I found a couple of photos that answered my questions.

The QR mechanism fits in a little “box” on the underside of that part of the vise that attaches to the workbench.

The attached photo shows this orientation quite clearly. Note the vise face and handle are to the right in this photo.

Have your say...
