8" x  12" Modular Pallet for Workholding and Fixturing

Modular 8" x 12" Fixturing Pallet For Fast Prototyping, Reduces Set Up Times and Dynamic Parts Production


The 8" x 12" Modular Pallet-Vise System is a versatile workholding system that eliminates the need for custom fixtures.  It allows you to quickly and easily machine and prototype workpieces with minimal set up time.

This is a flexible system that is excellent for prototype or production workholding. The modular design allows you to use a single 8" x 12" Pallet, or connect two, three, four or more pallets to increase your workholding area.

When used with the 2L Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps it can hold virtually any shape, or difficult to hold workpiece when machining and engraving.  The Adjustable Workstops and Edge Clamps also help to consistently locate workpieces on the pallet for production machining. Page down for complete details.
