MOXON VISE BUILT WITH RED OAK & MAPLE, TWIN THREADED VENEER PRESS/BENCH VISE METAL SCREWS, RED OAK BASE PLATE AND REAR FIXED VISE JAW EXTENDED AT THE SIDES FOR CLAMPING TO BENCH TOP AND HAS A CAPACITY BETWEEN THE SCREWS OF 24”. THIS VISE RAISES WORK UP TO A COMFORTABLE HEIGHT TO SAVE BACK FATIGUE AND FOR EASE OF WORKING WITH HAND & POWER TOOLS. TWO OF THE PHOTOS SHOW AN EXAMPLE OF THE CAPACITY THIS MOXON VISE IS CAPABLE OF HANDLING. IN THIS CASE AN 18” WIDE ALMOST 25LB CUTTING BOARD FOR EDGE FINISH WORK. THIS VISE IS ALSO IDEAL FOR CUTTING MORTISES AND FOR DOVE TAILS. THE MATERIALS AND TIME REQUIRED FOR THIS BUILD HAVE PROVEN TO BE A GOOD INVESTMENT IN TIME, MONEY AND IN PROVIDING AN ADDED WOODWORKING FIXTURE CLAMPING DEVICE CAPABLE OF HANDLING LARGER PROJECT STOCK.

THE TWIN METAL SCREWS WERE SOURCED FROM: ROCKLER WOODWORKING AND FOUND UNDER – PRESS SCREWS/VENEER PRESS SCREWS. THERE ARE ALSO OTHER SOURCES LIKE: AMAZON & E-BAY WITH THE METAL THREADED SCREW HARDWARE LISTED UNDER “VENEER PRESS SCREWS” AND “BENCH VISE SCREWS”, ETC.
