Moxon style vise, about $13.00 in hardware from Ace, the rest was made from scrap wood I collected by the side of the road. Boards were hand sawn and hand planed. The recesses for the nuts were chopped with a chisel. I turned the hand wheels on my Shopsmith. Right now it’s being held on the bench by a clamp, but I will eventually get a couple of holdfasts to keep it secure.

Nice and simple build. I like it.

I am wondering if it would be easier to use (and safer) if you took the nuts off the back of the back-chop and used them to lock the wheel to the end of the threaded rod. That way the wheels would be permanently locked to the end of the rod and the extra rod length would protrude out the back rather than the front.

I will consider that…

Have your say...
