Hello everyone, in this project I wanna show you how to make a Mini Moxon Vise. I made a video and step by step instruction how to make it. This vise is very cheap and easy to make.
So, let's get started :)
- nuts and washers
- table saw or bandsaw
- optional cnc router
Step 1: Watch the Video
Video will give you a good overview on how to create such a rocker Mini Moxon Vise. But the following steps will still contain some extra useful information.
Step 2: Prepare the Wood and Cut
To make my vise I used 2 kinds of wood. Beech for jaws and walnut for wheels. To cut the shape I used cnc router. On the picture you can see dimensions of all parts.
Step 3: Improve the Edges
After cutting the edges don't look good. To improve them use sandpaper or belt sander. To round off the wheel's edges I used drill and sandpaper. To make chamfer use a table saw.
Step 4: Nuts, Screws, Leather
To make the screws I bought a long threaded rod and I cut two short pieces . I used a metric thread M10. Next, insert nuts in the holes. Glue leather to the jaws and excess of the skin just cut off.
Step 5: Almost Done
To better look and protect vise you can paint it or use oil. I used a Tung Oil. When oil is dry just screw all parts together.
