The photographs show that I used a “vice in vice” method which is often beneficial
when machining very small components as it allows the part to be positioned away
from the machine and in some cases removed for measuring. Making the angle clamping
face was just a case of lifting one end of the small vice a little making this operation
an easy one.
When I turned the clamp over to machine the remainder I added a soft jaw enabling
me to machine fully to the end of the workpiece by machining into the soft jaw. Photograph
5 shows the completed clamp and also the soft jaw illustrating how the cutter had
cut into this.
The clamp screw needs no comment being a simple item.
Photograph 6 shows the completed item which I am sure will make many marking out
tasks quicker, and frequently easier, than using other methods.
