    Would it not be preferable to have the cutting forces taken by the fixed jaw. Would I have seen shaper vices where the movable jaw is actually the other jaw, so to speak.

    That picture describes holding a thin piece of work as opposed to how to mount the vise.

    If transposed to the work show in the OP this makes the sideways mounting incorrect as Tony is holding by the narrow edges.

    Good point though in that sometimes you have to hold by a sideways mounted vise.

      Agreed but I don't have such a vise.

      I noticed this "integrated" (2piece?) vise in a video on this very subject
      by Rudy K: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRvZDBBXDXY

      I'm thinking that something similar would make a nice next project.

      It appears there are Tbolts that, once tightened, would take most if not
      all of the cutting forces.

        On the QCTP dovetails I made I found the width more touchy than expected. After the first one didn't fit quite right I took the QCTP off the lathe and tested the fit while the work was in the vise. This let me tune the handle position to match the factory holders.

          Yes thats a shaper/planer vice (the handle is on the fixed jaw end) I have 2 vises like that, one can be swapped so the handle can be at either end.

          Proper shaper set-up for

          I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure , but I'm not a complete idiot - some bits are still missing

            just to wrap things up, the other half turned out well.
