One of my Christmas presents this year was a BenchCrafted Moxon Vise hardware kit. I’ve been travelling quite a bit for work so I just finished putting it all together – but man I love this thing.
I used Hard Maple with mahogany accents. The basic design is similar to the base plans that come with the kit, but I had to adapt it to fit my bench which has the mdf top elevated above the side rails to allow use of a tracksaw without cutting into the sides.
I used a french-cleat-esque hanger on the side so I could quickly rotate the vise down and hang it on the end of the bench when I’m not using it. Since the weight is above the cleat, I had to put a small holder on the front to keep it from rotating off if it got bumped.
Thanks for looking.
