Mill Vice Stop - doubleboost - 05-16-2012

Needed one of these for some time now
I am just making it up as i go using what materials i have to hand
The side of the vice was machined square and a 12 mill hole drilled and tapped in the fixed jaw

I cut some threads on a bit of 18 mill stainless bar that my wife rescued from a scrap barbecue at work, they used to roast whole pigs on it (got her well trained)Big GrinBig GrinBig GrinBig Grin
This gave me a chance to use my ER32 collet holder to machine a square on one end.

Too bad you machined the square to a size suitable only for an adjustable wrenchRotfl
Just kidding, looks nice and robust.

I found a nice bit of metal under the bench should make a good block for my vice stop

First job was to fly cut it square

R8 adapter makes a good tube square

A 45 degree tool was then used to break the sharp edges

Once this is set up you just turn the block over to do all 4 edges at one setting
