For the manner in which men live is so different from the way in which they ought to live, that he who leaves the common course for that which he ought to follow will find that it leads him to ruin rather than safety.

Mill Stop

One way to cut down on set up time when machining parts is to be able to accurately place them in the mill without relocating them. That's easy on the Y-axis, as the vise is typically orientated with the rear jaw along that axis. The X axis requires a stop. Here is the one I just made:

The stop mounts down on to the mill table. The rod can be adjusted to set the location of the part.

In use. Once the X and Y zeroes are set, the rod can be set against the part. This will allow you to remove the part and place it back in the same position. This also applies to making multiple parts. The part currently in the mill vise is a gauge that will get it's own write up.
