Moxon Vise Build

09-28-2018 12:31 AM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this Moxon vise to bring my work up to a comfortable height when laying out and cutting dovetails and other joinery. The vise is 24 inches between the screws so I can clamp wide boards. The vise has really good clamping pressure and like all the Benchcrafted hardware I have seen, everything operates smooth and fast. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vBXvlP4bEs

Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubirá “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...

My Version of a Moxon Vise

05-17-2016 02:23 AM by builtinbkyn | 16 comments »

I decided to make a moxon vise for the bench. I figured I’d make it a mini-bench that mounts to my workbench, so it would provide a taller work surface as well as a larger clamping area for dovetailing drawers and panels. I planned this a few weeks back. The Benchcrafted hardware is certainly very nice, but I thought I’d see if I could make one on the cheap. So I searched to Amazon to see what I could come up with for the hardware. I ended up using CNC components and some ...

Concept Ideas using SketchUp #4: Moxon Vise

Since seeing a Moxon Vise on LJ’s I have wanted to make one. These are the SketchUp plans which can be downloaded here that I intend to use for the project. These plans are based on the Fine Woodworking #198 March 21 2008 article about Moxon vises

Woodworking Skills & Stuff: #3: Which type of vise is best for an old-timey bench?

10-06-2014 02:53 PM by StumpyNubs | 5 comments »

When you’re building a traditional piece of furniture, it makes sense to keep everything… well, traditional. You wouldn’t put a digital face on a Townsend clock. But a workbench is different. We built our bench in the Roubo style for its features more than the old-timey tradition. (Watch our 2X6 Roubo woodworking bench videos here) So equipping it with a modern vise isn’t sacrilege, it’s a no brainer. The only question is, what kind of vise is right for your bench. There are primarily two kin...

Moxon Vise for $6 and stuff around the shop

05-20-2013 03:11 AM by TechRedneck | 12 comments »

I have a nice Incra Lite on my router table purchased and used specifically for joinery. It does a nice job and I use it for small dovetails and box joints. However I always wanted to learn how to do hand cut dovetails for larger projects and drawers in the furniture I am building. After a couple attempts on my bench using the leg vise, my patience was wearing thin and back was starting to complain. I work on networks and servers all day and don’t use my back much. I follow ...

[Moxon Mini-bench] For sooth, mine bench completeth well.

03-20-2013 10:28 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

Jumping back in to the icebox, I mean shop, I finished up the Moxon mini-bench today and am well pleased. First order of business was to get the poplar nut-housings cut and chopped so I can make the handles for the threaded rods like on my leg vise. These are about half the size of the leg vise hardware so it went a lot faster. Especially because I could take the mini-bench (as it is) in the house where it’s warm and hack out the holes without worrying about damaging furniture! I ...

[Moxon Mini-bench] Save thy back.

03-20-2013 10:10 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Well, after stooping over to cut three of the four dovetail joints for the project I’m working on, I realized two things—-(1) I take a long time to join (I’m averaging about an hour and a half) and (2) that much time stooped over the leg vise is killing my back in the cold (30-40*) garage! So I tooled around the internet looking for solutions to my problem, all the while trying to keep calm, because that ticking clock in the back of my head is getting insistent that I get a...

Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench #3: Assembly

01-07-2013 04:50 AM by lysdexic | 16 comments »

I did not get as much done as I wanted this weekend. Just a few notes and pics of the glue-up and assembly. One goal I had was to make the front chop square with the table top. The glue up had to be perfect because it didn’t want the chop or table top to slip. If it does, then I would have to plane the entire surface of one of these until getting back to square and flat and, knowing my skill level, would probably just end up chasing my tail. To help with this, i decided to plane a...

Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench #2: hardware installation and more design considerations

01-03-2013 04:31 AM by lysdexic | 28 comments »

Installing the hardware was straight forward. For the fixed jaw an 1 1/2 hole is drilled and shaped to accept the nut. Then 3/4” hole goes all the way through. The 3/4” hole in the mobile jaw is elongated to prevent binding. Install both screws and done! ————————————————————————————&#...
