Are there two parallel guides and a central screw?

Excess play along the guides can allow misalignment under tension.

In the Sellers class I took, all the vises were lined in soft (disposable) pine which was heavily scarred by past use. Some of them were "crunchy" in use.

I prefer a lining of heavy bridle leather, which is also compliant.
