Motorize Panavise jaws in 10 minutes on Instructables. Thanks to Paul for sending this in!
Panavise is a popular tool with hobbyists, particularly for electronics. However, it can take many knobs turns and a lot of time to open and close the jaws.
This Instructable shows how to quickly open/close the jaws with a power drill or power screwdriver (which you probably already have) via a coupling nut attached to the vise screw. Watch the video to see it in action.
Since the Panavise screw is a standard 10-24 thread, a coupling nut should be readily and cheaply available from your local hardware store. Attaching the coupling nut should only take about 10 minutes.
