5 tips for using the drill press vise
- The machined surface of the workpiece must be higher than the jaws, otherwise the workpiece must be raised with parallel pad irons.
- In order to firmly clamp the workpiece and prevent the workpiece from loosening during grindign, it need to attach the smoother surface of the workpiece to the clamping surface of the jaw.
- When clamping the workpiece, lightly hit the upper surface of the workpiece with a wooden hammer or a copper hammer to make the workpiece close to the clamping surface of the jaw.
- When clamping a workpiece with poor hardness, in order to prevent the workpiece from deforming, some protective measures need to be taken to protect the weak part of the workpiece first.
