Vise Rack Stop
This simple device is designed to help prevent racking when clamping work at one side of a vise. Simply stack up as many of the 2.5 mm (0.10 inch) thick shims as you need to match the approximate thickness of your work, up to a total of 100 mm (4 inch), and insert it into the vise opposite the work being clamped.

For thicker work, you can add a piece of scrap lumber to occupy the bulk of the space, and then use the rack stop to fill in the remainder. This keeps the jaws aligned as force is applied, eliminating potential for damaging the workpiece, the vise mechanism or both from racking.

Secured on a tension-adjustable steel shaft with hard maple end knobs, the 140 mm (5-1/2 inch) long shims are durable high-density polyethylene, resistant to stains and adhesives.

Comes from LeeValley in Canada.
Sold individually (Price for one piece).
