Hi all, just joined this site , worked in metal fabrication field for 35 years,mainly welding /fitting/fabricating parts , did some basic machining but I'm not a machinist . bought myself a mini milling machine a couple of days ago, LMS 3960( Canadian Busy Bee equivalent). It c/w a brushless motor,very excited to start using it making whatever ,don't have a specific project at the moment. My question today is, I'm looking to buy a parallel set for my 3" milling vise(inexpensive /imports ), all I find is the 6" long sets, I am wondering if I should settle for a 6" st instead of searching for a 3" or even a 4" . Is a 6" going to interfere with clamping or machining if used in a smaller vise? Could I just cut them to the size I want? What's your opinion, please share your thoughts. Thanks very much. Ken.
