I have found the sharp, thin, sheet metal piece that slides in the back of the Kurt vise to be difficult to use.
It does keep the chips out of the screw but you really have to keep an eye on it.
It wants to hit the main casting as I move X inward.
It's sharp too!! Ask me how I know.
Take it off?
Sometimes the simplest answers are best! Thanks for the suggestion. Thought the snips would curl it up. Didn't even think about the fact I had a vise!I just used a pair of snips and was careful to make as straight a cut as I could.
Then I just put the ends in the vise and used those wonderfully flat and powerful jaws to press the pieces flat!
