Mounting Stock in a Manual Vice

Mounting Stock in a Manual Vice


How do you mount a piece of stock in a manual vice in your milling machine?


CIM Master Teacher Matt Baehr explains how to mount a piece of material in your manual vice and why he does it the way he does. This will apply to all other milling machines as well. See the short video below!

From McMaster-Carr: Parallels are excellent for inspection and layout on surface plates and for setups on drill presses and milling and grinding machines. Parallels are made of hardened or ground tool steel. SOme master teachers have also used laser cut acrylic for parallels as well; not as accurate, but they work pretty well and can be made any height you want!
