Finally got my moxon vise ive used it already to plane a picture frame and it works perfect. I think its the perfect add on for a work bench… I love it. So I made it out of solid yellow birch the hardware is all shop made I had to weld couple pieces together thanks for my dads shop on the farm. I took the acme thread from an pig farm vent electric cylinder that the motor was burnt out and cut it in 3 pieces, one tap and 2 12 in long rod. The end of the tap was already machine to the diameter of the inside diameter of the threads which made it perfect for a tap because it makes centering the tap easy. I have tapped the back piece of the vise, the wood nut at the back and the wood insert in the hand wheels. The wheel spins perfectly. I will put a link to youtube.
