I managed to snag some more 5/8" fixtures when they came in stock this last Friday but I’d been gearing up for months to use this table so I got a little creative to finish with what I already had. I love that the 3-axis squares accept pins for the fixture tables and that they can be removed. I used one with and one without pins to build a simple frame that has to fit exactly onto some equipment and couldn’t be more pleased with the tooling I’ve gotten from Fireball!
I only had 1 ball lock pin at the time and not enough alignment pins so I clamped down the alignment pins and put some 5/8" bolts through to keep the tooth blocks aligned. Since I didn’t yet have fence pin blocks, I used 1-2-3 blocks and alignment pins against the 3-axis squares to kinda mimic that as well.
The amount of effort it took to get a neatly-fitting frame out of this was so much less than last time and that’s even without having all the tooling I’d like. I absolutely love being able to use this table!
Also, I now have 4 mega squares (5 if you count the one on order) and they’re just awesome! Thanks for doing domestic manufacturing and for coming up with thoughtful designs.
