DIY Vise Fixture Plate Widget

Let’s use SolidWorks CAD + HSMWorks CAM + the Tormach PCNC 1100 CNC Mill to machine a sacrificial fixture plate!

This plate is designed to drop into a standard 6″ CNC vise – this let’s you keep your vise in the machine! We like plates like these for larger parts, parts that need clamped down via center holes/pockets and parts where you need to drill or machine through the bottom (hence the sacrificial nature of the plate). We’ll tap the 1/4×40 holes with the tension compression head, ream the dowel pin holes and thread mill the 1/2×13 holes!
