Default Our New Moxon Vise

Just wanted to tip you all off to our new Moxon vise. I'm so excited to offer this. I just love this vise, and I'm not just saying that.

Here's a quick video:

Very nice, Jameel. I could even see that on my MFT. Great video. A good lesson on cutting tenons there!

Been wanting to make a 'joinery benchtop bench' and seeing that nice hardware convinced me to pick it up. Ordered the hardware kit earlier this afternoon. I'll likely make the version that has a small bench behind it for support since my MDF and/or MFT benchtop aren't too swell for hold-downs.

And I have a nice stick of 8/4 Purpleheart

Way to go Jameel!



Very well done video as well.

I just installed a few weeks ago a 22 foot Timberstrand bench / counter in my new studio. (The one you saw Paul Marcel - in fact I'm in the process of installing another one downstairs)
This would work beautifuly after I drill some hold down holes.

I'm gonna order one tomorrow!
(hmmm, I wouldn't want to be on the wait list after WIA!)

cheers,
Roger

Jameel, what are the washer-like things under the hand wheel? They aren't mentioned in the description. Steel? Nylon? Thrust bearing?

Jameel,

Another question,

Are the "acme screws" available in optional longer lengths?

And through your experimental stage when designing the vise, what are the longest spacing of the clamping elements you tried? (with the same milled stock)

Downstairs?! But that's your canvas for painting! Or are you still going to paint that wall, but also have a bench? That could be nice; different view down there.

The other key reason I ordered this afternoon when I saw this answered my problem is because it says there's a limited first run. They'll do another after, but I'm assuming there's a certain threshold after which the order will be made and people will queue up.

I was practicing dovetails tonight thinking I would have loved this bench. Being all hunched over can't help. Much like 90F doesn't help.

Ok, there goes this year's impulse buy. Hopefully the Moxon vise will arrive with a bit of suede too. Should make a good addition to my bench as the back does not like bending so much any more.

BTW, Jameel, do you happen to have a wheel kit for a 1 ton bench?

On the window side.
The blank wall is being kept pristine.

Thanks everybody! Those washer-like things are actually...wait for it...washers! They are steel and prevent the hand wheels from digging into the movable jaw.

If we get enough call, we will offer longer lengths as an accessory. Right now max capacity is 2-1/4". How much capacity would you want? Keep in mind that the more capacity you require, the longer the screws will protrude from the front of the vise. If you get too long they will get in the way.

If you're talking about space between the screws, just over 24" since most case pieces rarely get wider than that. Any longer and the thing would be pretty huge. But for permanent mounting a wider vise would work. If you wanted to make one with more width capacity I would beef up the jaws a bit, but that would only affect the jaw's flex when using the large-capacity version for narrow stuff--wide stuff would get held just fine.

Complete vises and hardware-only versions both include suede.
