The anti-lift jaw system from 5th Axis is available for those customers requiring higher precision and accuracy during secondary operation machining.
The system uses a cleat and angled soft jaw to pull the jaw in and down when torque is applied to the lead screw.
Loosen shoulder bolts and remove the standard master jaws from the vise base.
Take the shoulder bolts and utilize them to bolt the cleats onto the vise base. Torque shoulder bolts to 20 ft lbs. (27.11 Nm)
Take anti-lift soft jaw and insert the soft jaw into the cleat. It helps if you insert the soft jaw at a 45 degree angle. Ensure that soft jaw seats properly into cleat.
Take soft jaw covers and place them on the backside of the jaw. Tighten bolts to secure covers to the soft jaw. These covers ensure that no chips on debris enter the anti-lift soft jaw.
In case you missed the episode of 5th Axis vises on How Its Made, you can re-watch it right here.
This may be useful in explaining what you do in your job.... even though there's a lot of talk about "carving", "shaping" and "Sculpting"
