I just finished up my Moxon build. I am in the middle of building a workbench and needed something to help hold things still during the build. I decided to build the Moxon first so it could help me out on the rest of the bench.

The hand wheels are made of Oak and Padauk drilled and tapped. They work great and no need for me to buy any 1” acme nuts!

Thanks for looking!

Those handles and the contrasting colors certainly make it beautiful. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished bench, for sure.

An awesome vise, Airframer, smart thinking to build it BEFORE finishing the bench! I love your wooden handles better than Benchcrafted!

That is one sweet looking vise! I love the handles. I do have one issue though. Please … oh please … take that hand plane (rabbet plane?) off the concrete floor…

Haha! Yeah that was a temporary placement. It is back safely stowed again.

If it’s on the concrete floor, it can’t fall to the concrete floor. ;-)
