Hello felows,at this time I would like to share a Moxon Vise (I don’t know if I can call this a Moxon Vise but it was my inspiration).
To be honest I love the idea of Moxon vise but hate the idea to use two screws to set up the workpiece.
Using a wood leftovers and a few metalic parts I did my version with only one screw to tight during the piece position time.
It use a little more wood but I like a lot how it works.
The idea is a pair of locks at two bars (wood,metalic pipe or rod) and because you know the thickness of wood you normally use you can preset the lock position and slide the bars freely and then tight the workpiece turning more or less the screwed wheel.
The wooden wheel saved for other project.I rounded the sharp edge.
All parts together
This hole will be tapered
This small screw will be inserted at main screw to pull back the center jaw
This is the hole for both washers.It helps to main screw turns easily when tight the workpiece
This is the hole for locking pin main screw at wooden wheel
This is the nut
Here the vise assembled.The lock at preseted position and you can slide the both bars foward using only one hand and after tight the main screw.You decide the lock position based in your pieces thickness
Using two diferente thickness at same preseted lock position (turning more or less the main screw)
This screw can be shorter if necessary (permit you to be closer to workpiece)
Thanks for attention
