    Milling Vise Work Stop

    Nothing too special about this except it's universal compatibility with 4 different vises in my shop.
    The ends of the main 3/8 diameter rod have two different threads. 5/16-24 on one end of each allows them to be used on the Wiltons which I drilled and tapped for 5/16-24. One end has 1/4-20 for use with one of my machinist vises. The other and last end has a 6mm x1mm for the newer machinist vise. Now I have two main rods for all my vises. I made one clamp from 1018 and all of the rods are just drill rod. One of the secondary rods has a brass end that is useful for very small parts that might be missed by the secondary rod holders. It is just threaded on to the rod. I will probably make another clamp if the need arises.

    Cheers, JR

    I'd venture any vise suitable for a machine incomplete with out means for a part stop. Some table stops are too short or lack adjustment to project in-between the jaws; especially those dependent on tee-slots.
    A good plan, doubling usage by two separate thread sizes.
    You've done it again jjr2001.

    Thanks TM51. The stop has already been put to use in the shop. I have found that my rod clamp is a bit too large for small pieces so my next change will be to make a second clamp that places the rods closer together and make it a bet thinner for an easier grip with the locking allen cap screw.

    Cheers, JR
