I made this Moxon Vise for my workbench and created a YouTube tutorial for those who are interested in building one.

Its a simple project that can be knocked out in a day with limited tools, the parts are cheap to buy as well.

You can view the project video here http://youtu.be/BW1DTpzXmG8

I hope you like it.

Cheers
Warren

Aren’t they fun to make? Mine cost about $25 when you factor in the cost of the lumber and the hardware.

I noticed in some builds, they shave one of the clamps up to 11 degrees to help give a better clamp. Have you found that is not necessary?

I have not noticed i need to do that, the only think i have done is use a wedge at the bottom of the clamp if i put something in it that just sits in the top inch or so, this way i get even clamping preasure.

Saw this the other day and made a not to build one. I have several big chunks of threaded rod with no set purpose other than building garage machines. Lack a welder, so I’ll have to cipher on an alternative for that.

Hi Gianni If you drill a hole through the rod and nut you can use a split pin or a nail and when you expoxy it into the handle i dont think it will move.
