It ain’t pertty but, it’s functional. :)
I patterned this after the one made by Jennie Alexander and, used by Peter Follansbee. (Linked below.)
You say “Moxon vise” I say “double-screw”
I wanted to use wooden screws but, the thread cutter boxes and taps have too many bad reviews. Poorly made tools. The good ones are in the hundreds of dollars so, I won’t be gett’n one of them.
I’ll put wooden handles on this one later. I’ve seen others use epoxy to do that.
It’s has a 12 1/2” capacity between the screws.
I plan to make a larger one with a 24” capacity (between the screws), similar to Brandon W’s in the near future. I’ve already purchased the Veneer Press screws and some 8/4 Poplar. It’ll be hefty!
Building a Moxon Vise
I know this ain’t noth’n special. I’m just gett’n started in woodworking. I’ve got a lot to learn. I don’t have a lot of tools. I don’t even have a legitimate workbench yet! :) I want to build a Rubo someday.
There are a lot of very impressive projects on this site. Maybe one day, I’ll be able to post a real nice piece of furniture I built. We’ll see.
