Clamping Tips

Found these reading various forums, and thought they were significant enough to keep track of. In no particular order or sort:

– Spherical Clamping Washers: Clamp nut or cap screw is evenly loaded and clamping pressure is uniform, and square to the machine table.

– Insert newspaper between the mill table and the work-piece. It’s said to significantly increase the frictional resistance of work-piece shifting.
