Customer Reviews

The Moxon Vise, named after Joseph Moxon (who described the vise in his book titled Mechanick Exercises), is a great vise. A Moxon vise is especially useful for cutting dovetails and sawing because it holds the material rock solid and in the middle of the vise where it is not obstructed by any hardware. 

Rob designed his own version of the Moxon Vise.  It uses all the components that come with our Cosmanized Moxon Vise Kit but it is a completely built vise.  If you prefer an already built moxon vise that is ready to use instead of building your own then this is the vise for you!

We "Cosmanize" the WoodRiver Moxon Vise kit by adding two vise springs, two self-lubricating bushings, two revolving knobs, drilling and tapping a hole in each of the wheels for mounting the revolving knobs, and providing a strip of cork-rubber to line the jaw with. These additions take the WoodRiver Moxon Vise kit to the next level.

    Moxion vice

    I love my moxon vice, with my bad back it allows me to put it at a comfortable height. Also the two handed spring action handles make life a lot easie.
