Hey guys, Rick here from Elijah Tooling.
Today, I want to show you how quickly this tool setter can be changed. Obviously, a quick change plate like this has to save you some time and money or it makes no sense to make the plate.
So, this plate consists of the locating capability and the ability to bring up the Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners and Accessories inside the plate. As you can see, I have got a round pin locator and a diamond pin locator. I am going to drop this in and then we are going to rapidly bring up this Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners and Accessories into the plate which is going to hold it fast.
As you can see, minimal effort there to lock that plate in and positive located. Took us about twenty or thirty seconds to do that. If you know anything about this tool setter and locating it in a slot or locating it on a table like this takes a lot longer than twenty or thirty seconds.
That also shows you kind of how the Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners and Accessories works. As you can see, it comes right up into the plate, holds it fast and allows you to do a lot of things you couldn't otherwise do.
Thank you for your time.

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.
