A few pieces of scrap timber, 2 carriage bolts and some screws and glue, and my new workbench has a neat little moxon twin screw vise...

Cool tool!
Looks like the heads of the bolts are glued(?) to wood knobs.
What is holding the threaded ends?
Or do I misunderstand entirely.

Hi William. The heads of the bolts have 1/4 inch of square shank underneath them, in front of the round rod. They are pressed and glued into the wooden knobs. 2 nuts are set into the vise backplate and holes are drilled into the bench to accomodate the bolts as they are screwed in. Hope that helps

That's really cool, here's the one I made for my shop; 4' long and made of pegged, laminated maple.
