One last vise accessory I want to discuss is the vise
stop. Vise stops are used to index a piece of stock to one
side or the other of a vise. These stops can be elaborate
contraptions that connect directly to the vise or can be
made from simple readily available parts.
The stop shown in Figure 25 is made from the clamp
kit that came with the MF70 milling machine.
By using a vise stop, I can mill a part from the stock;
once complete, simply remove the stock and add another
without changing the setup.
Vises are not only used on milling machines. Figure 26
shows one of the vises I use on my large KRMx02 CNC
router to mill aluminum parts I sell on my website. The
adjustment procedure is nearly identical to that of the one
Next time, we will look at the tools and procedures I
use to design a part.
If you want more
information on my KRMx02,
KRmc01, and KRmf70 CNC
books, you can find them at
I also have a free
download for an early CNC
router book that I wrote. You
can get it at www.kronos
If you have any
questions, you can post them
in the MF70 conversion forum
