    Mill or CNC Router Aluminum Holding Clamps

    Set of 6 clamps that are used to hold a piece of stock by the edge.
    These clamps are aluminum so they can be cut into if necessary.
    That has not happened yet but no harm will come to the tool, the part,
    or the table.

    I use these on the mini mill and the CNC Router table to grip plates by
    the edge without having to drill holes in them. No clamping parts are in
    the path of the cutter so I have a clear field of work.

    The main block is 2.5" long with the clamping jaw attached the entire length is
    about 3 1/8 inches. The smallest piece they can hold is right at 2.5". Longest piece
    that they can hold would be limited only by your table. The main block is mounted
    to the table with cap screws (1/4-20) and t-nuts on the mill or just wood screws
    on my CNC router table since it is MDF.

    There is a small angle on the bottom of the jaw to provide table clearance
    when the clamp is tightened.

    Cheers, JR
