Now maybe you can help me understand, since I'm having a moment and I can't think why, how does it help mill a hex?
Sleep on it overnight. By morning it'll be a "DUH" moment.

I'm guessing now that, you'd clamp the round stock, then machine one flat, then rotate the vise x amount of degrees? Now how would you know how much to mill off for each flat?
Dam, I'm thinking harder now, and I really fail to see how a indexing vise helps you mill hex's, espcically on a lathe when you can't spin the vise 360°.
