I always have trouble with my vise racking. I’ve seen many solutions, but none of them were easy to either keep track of or store away. Here is what I use to solve this problem.

These next 2 pics just happened to be my first try at hand cut dovetails. I had saved it for some reason and ended up using it to make this thing. It came out pretty good, not sure why I haven’t tried a project with hand cut dovetails.

This is where they live. They are always right near by when I need them.

I hope this might help someone who hasn’t found a solution they are happy with.

That staggered one will take on a lot of stock sizes. The other thing is a twin screw vise, the racking is generally a product of a vise that closes from a single point, even if sometimes there are 2 bars on it. Similar to the vise in your pic.

Another reason a Moxon is so neat. :-)
