Workholding fixture with sideclamps

Manual workholding fixture using side-clamps

This manual machining fixture used a toggle clamp to support the odd shape of the workpiece in the locating nest while the operator manually tightens the side-clamps.  The toggle clamp can then be moved out of the way so the top face can be machined.  This image shows a raw casting and a finished workpiece.
