This is what I use,
this pic is not mine got this from another site........mine is buried somewhere in storage in my shed :D
Old carpenter crosscut saw sharpening vise, works really nice filing race chain...each cutter is held tight and no interference from the jaws when using the chisel bit file. This model has 2 thumb screws to open close jaws, mine has a quick release lever. Whole unit clamps to edge of workbench.
