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
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
