Idea puts a stop to laborious cutoff. (Practical Ideas).

When doing cutoff work with a rubber-bond wheel and vise, I measure the amount of stock to be removed, adjust the part accordingly, and tighten the vise. However, this is time-consuming if, for instance, I have to cut 10 mm off the ends of over 50 parts.

To make the job easier and quicker, I drill several holes in the bottom of the vise for a pin. This pin is a stop that I butt parts up against, so I don"t have to measure each one or set up an elaborate stop. I also drill holes next to one another to accommodate large-diameter jobs.
