  • Shop Tip #743

    Seems that the only important dimension of parallels is how far each pair is below the top of the vice so I labeled the box that way. IE If I want this 0.375" bar a little above the vice I need a parallel about 0.2" shy of the top.

    Shop tip #742 was don't start numbering shop tips with #1.

      Shop tip #744

      If you have five differen vises, you might want to skip shop tip #743

      If you have one vise, it's a great idea.

        Yep, It is simple Math, If you have 2" tall vice jaws look at the height of the Parallels and subtract, they are fractions, even a carpenter can do it.

          That was my first thought. At school we have 4 mills with 3 different
          heights. So I have them labeled on the box with the height of the
          parallel so measure with the part setting on the bottom of the lathe
          and get appropiate parallel.

              I don't smoke, don't drink, don't do drugs, married so no sex, I guess I don't have any vises at all.
              The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.
