Parallel strips are hardened & ground steel pieces sold as a matching pair. Parallels are commonly used to support & accurately set jobs in a vice or bolted to the machine table.
Parallel strips provide clearance so as milling, drilling & tapping operations can be done without cutting into the machine table.
At Miller's Tooling, we offer many different sizes & height parallels sets or parallel pairs to suit all applications.

Cast iron Vee blocks are extremely economical way to support round bar or jobs whilst machining or marking out. These vee blocks come as a pair in 2", 3" 4", 5", 6" & 8" width across the top surface.


Ground vee blocks are also quite commonly used for similar setups.
The vee block and clamps are usually for marking out & grinding purposes by toolmakers. Vee blocks and clamps have steps allowing height adjustment.Parallels 12.jpg

Bottle jacks also come in a huge range of heights & sizes. The bottle jacks are great for packing under the workpiece to support which prevent chatter & distortion while machining.

When milling or grinding spindles with an indexing head set up, bottle jacks can help vibration etc.
