Just posted a quick Lake Erie Toolworks Wooden Vise Highlights video on our website home page. If you have a minute to spare take a look / see. I suspect you might even like the ‘bluesy’ music the video is cut with. Enjoy!
For those of you who may have been contemplating a Moxon Vise in your woodworking tool future, you may want to take a look at this before you make your final choice.
Courtesy of Brian McCauley and Brandon Marshall from “Workshop Review” they’ve put our Lake Erie Toolworks Moxon and Moxon Lite Vises through the proverbial squeeze. We encourage you to take a look to see how we made out. Enjoy!
The vise stock inventory is ready to go in Witnesham, Suffolk and our UK and other European customers are now ready to roll. Let the bench building and dovetail cutting commence.
Welcome aboard Classic Hand Tools!
Our April 2016 Workbench Idea is a special one featuring our new Moxon wood vise. This comes to us from Daniel C. an accomplished chair builder from Naples, Maine who sums it up best by saying: “Your Moxon vise is tougher than a Maine boiled owl!!! Nice work.”
What more can we say, so all you chair builders out there, take a look!
Started chair building 20 years ago. Taught by Mike Dunbar. Have a fully equipped chair workshop on the shore of Brandy pond , Maine.
Couldn’t be happier with the vise. Allows me to shape at any angle the wide chair seats with draw knife and spoke shave. Easy to change grain angles.
Can knife and shave with some force to shape all sides of the Windsor sack back chair seat. I pulled and tugged the chair seat sides with the drawknife – no problem.
Your Moxon vise is tougher than a Maine boiled owl!!! Nice work.
