Like so many of us, I’ve decided the price for the moxon is too dear for what it is. Wood I have on hand. Also have picked up the threaded rod. And I have a source for cast wheel handles, but I guess I’m too cheap to click the buy button. So i’ve decided to see if i can’t come up with a shop made alternative. I’ve looked at hundreds of google images for ideas – none seem to suit me.
So I’m stuck in some kind of visious decision / indecision loop and I’m getting nowhere. My latest solution is a copper pipe “T” fitting fixed to the end of the threaded rod to receive a traditional vise handle. The cross piece would slip as on a standard vice or be fixed and have a short handle on one end for quicker adjustments.
Be interested in hearing your thoughts. Or, would someone please tell me to stop thinking about it and just do it…
