A Moxon-Style Vise

Postby Dave R » Mon Jun 10, 2019 7:20 pm

This is a model I did for plans for this vise designed by a woodworker in North Carolina. Fairly simple build and cheap. Other than the wood for the chops, there's less than $20 in parts.

It is clamped to the workbench so it can be put away when not needed.

Hi Dave. I have been thinking of making one of these.
The function of the track on the front chop is not obvious to me.

It's a secret. :D

Actually, it is used for a couple of hold down clamps. The fellow who designed it uses one to hold a saddle square (he made a wooden one for it today) and another hold down holds the tail board in place while making out the pins. He's been making and using this sort of vise for many years and he says the hold down clamps are really useful.

Did he make a saddle square for his Moxin. Or a wooden hold down?
Might have to ask him for a pic?
No hurry.

He made a wooden saddle square. Here is a picture showing the one he made just glued up and clamped in his vise. Previously he used a Veritas saddle square.

Adding a square can really speeds things up when setting up to transferring marks. That is an idea I had thought about incorporating into the vice, but I had not done it yet. The hold downs are even a better idea! Thanks to both of you for sharing the tips.

I like the idea of keeping the square as a separate thing. You can place it where you want it in the vise and with my luck, a permanently attached thing would just be in the way. Wish I could take credit for the idea but I'm only the messenger.
