Nice way to keep it simple. But simpler yet it to combine the two so you only need to have one thing taking up space in the shop. Benchbull or Bulloxon would be more useful and cheaper.
Magnificently! Thank you!
Those wing nuts!
hmmm, what would it take to add a bike chain to turn the moxon into a twin screw vice?
$20 is still too steep for me. I guess it’s a good thing I already have a vice. But also I don’t see why you need some fancy acme threads instead of just regular hardware store bolts; those would be plenty strong enough for a woodworking vice.
Great video I always need a higher vice might make one of these
Nice job Ben that looks easy and awesome I want build one now instead of buying one for $300
What is wood type and dimensions you used for maxon vise ?
We’ve come a long way from Tase Frid’s bench… But on a positive note:
* cut tails first
* no screeching routers
Dang. Gotta build some dovetail vises now 🙂
Great Idea to use the Dumb Bell Bars
If you use the dumbbell bars, shop around. You can find them even cheaper with metal spinlocks, the rubber/nylon deforms.
Also love the idea to relate the magazine to videos. Very useful.
great tips, but you could have put a little bit more effort on the video…
Bar clamps work for theMoxon vise, too.
I have FWW issue #268 but the cover looks different from that shown at 3:16. Why ??
Thank you excellent video.
Cool stuff, Ben!!!
Love the hi-speed /slow cutting etc: straight to the point! Thank you!
Moxon vises are captured technology from the planet Moxon. Not too many people know that’s how they got their name…
