Saving surface of new fixture plate .....
« on: April 21, 2016, 09:02:41 PM »
Hi All,

Just made a new sub plate for my mill to fixture a part to mill the outside contour, but did not want to cut into the new plate. Plate is made from M6 tooling plate. Part needed to set flat so I applied laminate counter top material with double side tape in the area I was going to cut. The thickness of the material is very uniform, within a .001" or .002 at the worst. I just cut deep enough to finish the sides of the part. Held up fine using spray mist. Saved the surface for another day. Picture showing the cut into the laminate.
