My version of the moxon vise. I got the screws form Wetlzer before they disappeared. The rest of the hardware I got from McMaster-Carr. The wood I used is 8/4 poplar. the only thing I would change is the length of the screws – I used 18” veneer press screws and I should went with 12” ones. I tend to over build a bit.

Excellent! Simple, effective, and brings you to a good working height for joinery.

I’d love to learn how you attach it to your benchtop.

I usually put it between the dogs. If I’m doing a lot of work in it, I’ll add some F clamps on the ends.

Great Job. I just finished my vise and it is very similar to yours. The only thing I would have done different was maybe make it a little shorter in length. The next time I run across some good 8/4 hardwood at a garage sale maybe I will just make a smaller version and swap out the hardware.

It’s 23 1/2” between the screws and the jaws are 5” high.

I found the long length to be a PITA sometimes. It also takes up a lot of real estate on the bench when in use but I’m not making a smaller one.
