I feel guilty that many if not most of my pieces are for the shop
fixtures and jigs
storage, tools, and work holding
but I'm pretty sure this tops the cake

when complete there will be six inches of perpendicular clamping
and hopefully six inches of horizontal travel

this screw is probably more suited to a Moxon style vise
but I think the point of force will be a tremendous advantage

these are your typical half blind dovetails
in 12/4 stock
with a twist

I spent hours excavating the first one

for the next three I definitely will use the drill press

all the pieces are dimensioned
the joinery begun

I'm sure there will be modifications, alterations, adjustments and additions
and will try to keep you posted
