V Blocks

.

Review


Using a V-block to clamp the piston of my rotary engine to drill the gudgeon pin hole. As there were 5 pistons to drill exactly the same I set up the V-block and clamped it to the milling table.

The V-block clamp is quite large and would have hit the chuck so I used another piece of bar-stock and a piece of brass angle to apply the clamping force, thus allowing the clamp to be moved away from the line of the chuck.


Price: approx 20
