Nothing riveting here just my Moxon vise. It’s made of ash. A neighbor welded the wing nuts up using stainless rod. It’s used for dovetails and easily stored out of the way. I’ve had it around awhile but I’ve been posting things lately.

Thanks for posting this, Blackberry! I see we share the same sort of dovetailing jig …

We do. I think I copied mine from David Barron. I have a couple of his guides. Btw, it might be a little far from you but there’s a cool hand woodworking tool event in Amana Iowa. Went a couple years ago and going again. If you didn’t already know you might enjoy their website http://www.handworks.co/
May have the same saw, Lie Nielsen independence in the background??

... way too far, but thanks for the link! Lie Nielsen independent in the background?  Naw … would you believe Stanley Gent with a really cool tote? LOL!

Nicely dne and looks very functional.

I like the wings welded to the nuts for handles!

Yes … didn’t care for the handle of the gent saw … not enough control. I like the look and feel of an open tote. I don’t mean to derail your project thread.

Simple is always better….so say the Shaker’s. Who am I to disagree with a religion that dances during worship? Very nice!

I picked that up from someone else’s vise. It’s used to hold round objects in a vertical position. Things such as dowel rods. Works well for that.

Have your say...
