Early records of this vice appear in the 1650s; the fact that it is still popular today is testament to its usefulness.
The Moxon Vice clamps to any supporting work surface, transforming it into a workbench. On an existing workbench, the Moxon vice raises up a workpiece to a more convenient height. It is especially effective when cutting dovetails or hand sawing tenons.
The Axminster Trade Moxon Vice comes complete with solid beech wood jaws. At 45mm thick and 140mm deep, the jaws guarantee a rock-solid work holding. European made, our Moxon vice features two rolled screw threads 20mm diameter with a 4mm pitch and two 130mm diameter cast iron hand wheels. The mass of the hand wheels and the polished acme screw threads allow the wheels to spin freely, drawing the jaws together effortlessly. A large brass washer behind each hand wheel spreads the load on the front jaw. The 350mm gap between the screw threads allows work on the ends of wider boards. The vice is able to clamp tapered workpieces. Fast and effortless, the Axminster Trade Moxon vice will make your joinery even more pleasurable.
