The FSM says:
Do not use a lateral type vise.
Do not allow press pressure to exceed 9807N (1000Kg, 2205 Lb.)

What is the reason for not using a lateral type vise? Can I use one if I'm careful? I'm sure I could be careful enough to not exceed 2205 lb.

Most everyone here use a standard shop vise. You only have to be sure both ends of the tensionner are at an exact 90° to each jaw and that you compress VERY slowly.
