    Look on this site and see if they have something you could use. I have a lot of tools from them and they are all top quality.

    What's the problem? Why not just make some?

    I have a couple sets that came with specific devices, one a 5C indexer.

    They aren't rocket science, are they?

    Wedging kickers are Great, but actually put forces on your table that need to be considered.
    That's a pretty thin table for wedgies.
    Gorgous set-up otherWise!

    >>ther's certainly the chance I'm not see~ing that right, but they look like wedgies from here.<<

    No link or indication to translate the web page or corespond in english with the author of the article. I can see the clamp I'm talking about in several views, so I'll just measure up my RT and see if I can make something like it!

    I was a bit late, but the picture I posted above shows something similar.

    Here is a translated version of that german site:

    Some guys turn tank-feet up-side-down and use a stud with large thick washers.
    Maybe based on that method ?

    Stepped clamps for rotary table

    I am setting up to cut gears using a 4” Vertex Rotary Tableon my X2 Mill. Somewhere, in my research, I saw a picture of the same RT,clamped to a mill table using custom low profile clamps that nearly filled theslots on the Vertex and didn’t interfere with either the RT table or the chuckthat was mounted. I didn’t think at thetime to save the picture or ask the poster about it. Now I can’t find it.
    The clamps did not require the use of the standard clampingkit step blocks. They looked like an upside down stair case.
    Anyone know where this design came from? Can I get a reference or even a sketch of thedimensions, please?
    Thanks,
    Chuck
