Holding Parallels in Place

By Marc Giroux

Here is a simple and quick way to hold parallels in place while removing/installing the workpiece.

I came up with this idea after realizing I was wasting too much time clamping every little part because I had to reposition the parallels for each one. Since I had about 20 parts to modify, I needed a better way.

PhotoWalking by the trashcan, I noticed some packaging foam squeezed inside of a cardboard box. If it can be squeezed, it can push back. Ta da! The light came on!

The next day, a colleague of mine was using the idea for himself so I decided to share it with all of you.
