I originally posted this on Vectric's forum, but as it makes sense to post under this topic I'm sharing it here again. Sometimes a part that needs a little CNC work done on it is too small for any conventional bed clamp to hold down. I have used my drill press table vise on occasion, but it is rather tall. More useful on my CNC shark which has better Z clearance than my Probotix Meteor. Most wood vise parts are 1/2" BB plywood and cut out on my CNC. One small part on the bottom was a thinner piece of scrap plywood. I spaced the holes out so the vise would slide into 2 tracks of my CNC bed. Discovered by accident that the hole spacing also works in the solid t-track bed of my CNC Shark. Apologies for the B&W images. Accidently had the wrong setting set in my photo software. The 3/8" x 16 threaded rod pushes against a 5/16" vertical aluminum post embedded int the front vise jaw. Keeps the jaw from spitting. No handle designed for it yet. I turn two nuts jammed together on the end with a box end wrench. 4D
