Topic tags/keywords: record vice repair quick release question


I have three record quick release vices, and love them.

One I have had for a long time and it works perfectly . My two recent additions, despite being given a loving clean, still do not re engage after using the quick release.

On the original I simply turn the handle, the gearing engages and I wind to close.

On the two new ones the quick release allows me to open the vice, but subsequent turning of the handle does not re engage the gearing (screw thread). I have to manually close the vice before I can tighten.

On inspection, I can see no differences between them.

They are VERY clean and shiney

Any thoughts?

Thank you
