i couldnt figure out how to make cant plates in a mill. its easy to hold the part at one angle, but i couldnt figure out how to get it “canted” on two angles. any one have any ideas ❓

You need a sine plate. There are different types, some just kick it up at one angle. We have one that can throw up 2 angles though, here @ work. They require math to figure out the proper angles…yick. sine cosine tan

If you’re any good @ CAD you can just create the compound angles that way and scrub the top with a ball mill. That way you can hold it straight in a regular vise.
