    Angle Setup Plates, Set

    Angle Setup Plates, Material - Stainless Steel, Hand honed to +/- 0.003 deg. Alot of work, 2 sets of 18 plates, 0.25 deg. to 45 deg. They work great for quick setup and repetitive setups. Credit to "The Tool and Die Guy" for the plans.

    Catfish,

    Wow! The angle setup plates and the boxes are beautifully made. I too have been a lifetime subscriber to the "The Tool and Die Guy" from his early days on the web and remember his positive comments about having these but it would take a lot of work to make them. Nice to see your work. Thanks for sharing.
