Re: Basic set up question

So my efforts to make a $10 part, is going to cost me $120 or more! Aluminum stock, clamps, and more I'm sure. Good thing I'm doing this for fun and knowledge! I will take pictures and make another post of my project when it happens, if anyone cares....

Re: Basic set up question

Basic set up question

I have what is most likely a basic question to most of you guys. How can I hold this down so I can mill this block of aluminum? I want to face off the top. I'm not making a precision part, just a loading block for a wildcat cartradge. I just want to make it look nice. After I face it off I will be d...

So, where can I get 3 camlock studs for my D1-4 back plate? I do not want to take them off another back plate or chuck.
