Guys, my vise is slipping badly on my HDC 5x6 swiveling bandsaw (its a cheaper copy on the Grizzly G9742). Probably the same parts as the HF saw as well. The "nut" is only threaded 1/3 the way round and it pops loose easily. Searching "acme nut repair" turned up a few things on Google, my I saw lots of pictures of ones the have a brass button and spring to put pressure on the screw to I assume keep the threads engaged? Anybody ever modify this or have a link to a good repair? Grizzly does not have the part for sales online so I will have to call on Tuesday.
