In this video, Tormach machinist Mike Corliss demonstrates how to use the Strap Clamp Kit for basic workholding. Using a combination of nuts, t-nuts, studs, extended studs, and step blocks, Corliss shows how to strap a part to the table and at 4:57 how to support a long workpiece that is hanging out of a vice. In this video, Tormach machinist, Scott Johnson, provides some insight about one of the most important, yet under-emphasized, elements of machining - workholding.
