Construct a simple vise fixture
for holding tall parts. (See example photo)
This fixture can be used to rigidly hold tall parts for machining. It was constructed of 1 ˝ inch aluminum plate machined parallel on both sides with bolt holes added to match the existing back vise jaw tapped holes. Using this fixture is quicker than clamping and indicating an angle plate on the machine table.
