  • What clamping fixtures for thin/odd/round etc. shapes

    I have a 6" Kurt and a standard clamping set for Bridgeport.
    When I am struggling to securely clamp some round, irregular or thin parts I always wish I had some of Mitee-Bite clamps.

    Here is my question.
    Mitee-Bite has a lot of different clamps.
    Which one do you recommend as most universal all around clamp?
    Pitbull, Hex-cam action?
    I am thinking about getting this set:

    any advise is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    I have a large Kurt D688 vise on my machine and when I turn it lengthwise on the bed, there is nothing to clamp it down with. It's as wide as my bed. I use the clamps you show there to lock my vise down. Work great.

    Put I have to use keys on my vise, otherwise those are a pain to align a plate up with. You definitely need something for alignment.

      You can make up soft jaws for your Kurt vise.
