Throat depth is the vertical distance from the top edge of the jaw (flush with the bench top) down to the top of the main screw and guide rods. For these vises, 3 to 4 inches is the optimal throat depth range.
In respect to this, how is the size of a vise determined?
This is determined by the length of the screw (which holds the jaws together), and the longer the screw, the further the sliding jaw can open from the stationary jaw. The opening indicates the maximum capacity of the jaws, meaning that the vice will not be able to clamp an object wider than this.
