How You Can Get The Most Out of Your Flexvise Reversible Dovetail Vise

How You Can Get The Most Out of Your Flexvise Reversible Dovetail Vise

August 02, 2018

Hey guys, Rick here from Elijah Tooling.

I've got a real simple thing to show you today but I feel like you're going to like it. We do have newer Vises, these are our old ones but, I wanted to show you that we have an addition to our vises now, we are going to add a dove tail to the front of this.

What this allows us to do is that on this side you can see that we can now back up the vise and use the dove tail on the front and the dove tail on the back. The whole idea is that now you can machine any width and any length of the part that you want. We are really excited about using these.

One comment that I made when we were running these is that we broke an insert right here when we were slotting and we were so surprised that there was no movement in the part as a result of that breakage.

I thought that that was a testament to the holding power and stability of this vise. This vise was actually designed to be robust and very capable. This is an example of that.

Thank you for your time.

-Rick

You can see it's got the shock absorbers on this roller table. What happens is it will reach through the window that you're dealing with, and then it will tilt down to the table. So, what we ran into when designing this is. If it's not the right height then it will bang you into your machine. So what we did, is we created a solution that allows us to increase the height of these struts, and then tilt down. So what I'd like to do is demonstrate this today. Show you how it works, and also just kind of point out some of the features of it.

We had a request recently from somebody who asked us “what do you all with all those fasteners for? What is the point of having all of these different fasteners?” So I’m just going to go through it. I am going to try to make it as quick as possible, but I am going to try to give you some ideas as to why you might use a particular fastener.

Hey! Today I'm standing in front of our new and improved loading cart. And I just want to take a very short period of your time to talk about some changes that we’ve made to it and also the quick-change plate. So, I want you to think about 3 minutes 8 seconds. 3 minutes 8 seconds. That’s how long it takes us to quick change this trunnion using this quick-change plate. This plate is made to adapt to the trunnion and in fact we even provide you with the programs so that you can do that adaption.
