How to Indicate A Vise in Just One pass - TomG - 06-19-2012

Here's a little video I made showing how to indicate a milling vise in just one pass.

Next time I need to line up my vice I'm gonna try that!

A helmet cam has been suggested as well but that would never fly with my wife. She gets upset when I wear a head lamp. Smiley-nono

Well done. Thumbsup

So if you don't have a swivel base (or don't have it installed) will this technique still work? Could you have the vice swivel about one of the lock down bolts? It looks so easy on the video that if I had to I could just about talk myself into buying the swivel base for my vise.

Great "how to" thanks.

Thanks Dan.

I don't know how well it will work without a swivel base, I've always had them on my vises. Why don't you try it out and let us know? It sounds like it might work leaving one bolt loose.
