A milling vice is wonderful for clamping work which is true, square, parallel etc. but when it comes to odd shaped items like castings then the only answer is to clamp it. This very useful piece of equipment consists of 24 studs (4 each 3", 4", 5", 6", 7" and 8"), 6 T nuts, 4 coupling nuts, 6 flange nuts, 6 step clamps and 6 step blocks. All parts are heat treated, black oxide finished and accommodated in a wall mounting steel rack. Will suit most machines with 12mm table T slots, especially the Axminster Sieg X2, Super X2, X3 & Super X3 machines.

12mm T SLOT CLAMP KITWell made, no burrs or rough edges and the clamps and blocks interlock perfectly. The only criticism I can make is that the shortest studs are too long for some applications on small machines, easily solved by adding a couple of M10 x 40 screws with the heads cut off. Already I'm wondering how I managed before purchasing this kit.
