Handscrew Vise Helper

Sometimes you need to clamp a long board on edge on your benchtop. There are several ways to do this, but one of the easiest is to lock the board in a handscrew clamp held in a bench vise as shown. The most secure approach is to clamp the handscrew to the board before locking it in the vise.
