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.
Thank you for your time.

On today’s podcast, we interview Rick Miller, owner, and co-founder of Elijah Tooling, a company that sells innovative CNC work holding equipment. Rick has a knack for coming up with unique products and has several patents in the work holding sector. He says that innovative ideas are vital for success but getting customers to buy into those ideas is what makes for a successful business.
Question: What tool would you like to see invented?
So what we're going to do, is we're going to load our vices, we're going to load a part, we're going to probe it in, we're going to cut it. And then, we're going to go to the next step; which is to load our trunnion, load it, load a part and start it up. What's the point? Well, we're trying to show you how fast you can load and unload your parts of course. And then, also how fast it is to bring the trunnion in, and precisely locate it; get it into place and start machining with it.
