Hey guys, it's Rick at Elijah Tooling. Give me two, I will make it worth your while!
Today I am going to be talking about one of the six features that are available with the D-Drive Modular 5 axis vise, so stick with me!
Have you ever gotten a job in that you thought, "Oh man, I'm going to have to buy another vice or I'm going to have to buy some more hardware to hold this thing". Well, when we develop the D-Drive, we were looking for a solution that would work for many different type of holding situations, including five-axis vise.
So, today we're going to show you one of the ways that you can use this vice. And as you can see, we've got it holding a big part today. And also, as you can see right over here, this is the fixed side. We've got the fixed side over here and we're going to have the adjustable side over here. As you can see, I'm going to just give you a highlight of what that vice looks like. It's got all these holes in it, and the idea is that you can move these blocks around to pretty much do anything you want to do. And over the coming weeks, we're going to be showing each one of those ways to do it. But today I'm just going to take one short period of time, hardly nothing, to show you how easy it is to use this vice, to hold this part. So check it out.
Just like that. I mean, it seems so easy, but that's the point it's supposed to be easy. It's easy to load, easy to use. And actually, if you can see this, by putting the blocks where they're at we have a certain shelf depth and so we can adjust that shelf to almost nothing or as far as you want to go. So it's fascinating that this vice has the capability to do all that, but believe me, there's more than it can do. And I'm going to be excited to be sharing that with you in the coming weeks!
