What is lacking in this discussion is experience. Nobody with actual experience using a traditional bench screw of 2+ inches in diameter is worried that the screw will wear, that it will not hold, etc. We have been doing this for centuries.

I put more wear on an iron screw in 22 years than I did on a dogwood screw in 42 years. And I used the dogwood screw professionally, my only vise.
