To learn more, read Jeffrey Fleisher's Tool Review on the Benchcrafted Moxon Vise Hardware. Lake Erie Toolworks showed off a new wooden vise screw kit at Woodworking in America that can be used to make a nice wagon vise or shoulder vise. Nick Dombrowski of Lake Erie had a bench on display in the Marketplace of Woodworking in America that showed both of these vises installed and in use. About the shoulder vise, I have to confess that I’m not crazy about this form of vise in general – they work fine but are quite complex to install compared to almost any other face vise. We have a lot of books and DVDs on workbenches in ShopWoodworking – including downloads of my first two books on the topic at a special price.


Chris is a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and the publisher at Lost Art Press. I was definitely impressed with these vises when I tried them out, and especially enjoyed talking with Nick and his wife. Christopher Schwarz has helped many of us solve some pretty frustrating problems over the years. If you don't see the specific product you are looking for, please contact our Customer Service Department for assistance. Both vises work brilliantly and allow you to easily use a wooden screw to make these traditional vise forms.
What is new about these vise kits is they allow you to attach the wooden screw to a brass plate. The vise’s movable dog block slides forward and back in a channel and it runs on ultra high molecular weight plastic – slippery and tough stuff.


Lake Erie has started running its brass garters through a tumbler to give them a more finished look. So if you want a cool and traditional shoulder vise, the Lake Erie kit would be my recommendation. Once I got it back to the shop, I dreaded drilling holes directly in the bench and permanently mounting it – so I came up with a mount for it so I can clamp it to the work surface without permanently affixing it. I also made a front apron on it so I can use a leg vise I’m planning for in the very near future. I also ended up purchasing a set of magnetic soft jaws at Lowe’s made by Bessey (a popular clamp manufacturer), so I can clamp oddly shaped items.
