Low profile clamp for 4 Vertex RT
« on: November 29, 2016, 01:38:27 PM »
I want to make a couple of low profile clamps for my RT, as shown in the attached photo, to clamp my RT on my X2 mill, in the horizontal postion. I have 6061 aluminum, or I could make a pattern and cast it out of wheelium. I plan to put 3 bolt holes in it as shown in the picture.
Will either material be strong enough?
Any other suggestions on dimentions or features?
I have tried contacting the web site where I got the photo, but no response.
