Free Metalworking Project Plans: A Simple Vise Clamp for an X2 Mini Mill

I came across this project several months ago on Instructables.com and I thought it might make a good beginner milling project. The author, Doc Workingday graciously gave me permission to add his project to this site.

It’s a simple project for making a set of clamps that fit an X2 Mini Mill (Sieg / Harbor Freight / Grizzly) and these clamps would make a great first project for anyone who owns an X2 or similar sized mill.

The original instructable can be found here. However, for those of you who don’t have an instructables.com account, I’ve provided a PDF copy of the project instructions as well as the drawing below. Doc also provides SLDDRW and SLDPRT files of the drawing in his instructable for those of you with CAD capabilities.

Thanks again for letting me share this with my readers Doc!
