Looks like the heads of the bolts are glued(?) to wood knobs.
What is holding the threaded ends?
Or do I misunderstand entirely.
Hi William. The heads of the bolts have 1/4 inch of square shank underneath them, in front of the round rod. They are pressed and glued into the wooden knobs. 2 nuts are set into the vise backplate and holes are drilled into the bench to accomodate the bolts as they are screwed in. Hope that helps
