And welding, one of my 6" vises had been welded to a workbench along the stationary leg.  But for US$50 for a 6" vise with screw/screwbox in great condition I was willing to make a mount and spring for it and ignore the grind marks where they cut it off the workbench...

Over here you also often see a plate with threads on it and little plate that keeps the spring in place, all of it kept together with bolts.

The backplate of this one was original, the screws were too rusted so I replaced them. You don't see wedged attachment around here very often.
