Hey guys, it's Rick at Elijah Tooling, give me two I'll make it worth your while! Today we're gonna be talking about the D-Drive, eight way 5 axisvise. And the question that comes to mind is, "how much lift does this vice and more explicitly your vice create when you're holding a part."
Hey guys, it's Rick at Elijah Tooling. And give me two, I will make it worth your while 120 seconds later from now, you will understand why you should not be using a T-slot base fixture on your machine. And instead using a modular fixture from Elijah Tooling.
You must think I lost my mind. What is Rick doing with all this bread?!
Well, fun fact, almost a century ago Otto Frederick Rohwedderhad an innovation (you guessed it) it was the bread slicing machine! And ever since people have been saying, "that's better than sliced bread".
Today I am going to be talking about one of thesix featuresthat are available with the D-Drive Modular 5 axis vise, so stick with me!

So I thought I'd take a second and explain to you why somebody would want to buy this thing, what value it brings to the marketplace.
So we are all about flat plate modular fixturing. That is our one product, that is where our focus is. Those consist of four elements; our fasteners, our retractable dowel pins, zip bushings (which are an all in one multipurpose hold), and then our modular vices. That's all we got! But we can make a real impact for you today because those guys do the whole thing, and at a lower cost. So I'm just going to go through it with you a little bit, a couple of seconds, give me a little bit of time.
I was supposed to be comparing these two products: this is our fastener, this is Jergens ball lock. You know what? They both have great features. I'm not here to bash my competitor. In fact, I was thinking about ou
