|An angle plate is a 90 degree section of cast steel, with two accurately machined surfaces. They are used to hold material, that can not be held in any other way (i.e. machine vice). The slots, are for nuts and bolts, which are used to secure material, for example, when drilling.
|HOW ANGLE PLATES ARE USED|
|Here, the material to be drilled is held in position by two bolts and rests on ‘supporting’ packing (accurately cut steel). The angle plate is bolted to the table of the drilling machine.|
|ADJUSTABLE ANGLE PLATES|
|Adjustable angle plates, are useful when an angle other than 90 degrees is required. Loosening the bolts, allows the top plate to be adjusted, from horizontal to vertical. Once adjusted, the nuts are tightened, securing the plates at the set angle.|
This is another example of the use of an angle plate, for clamping irregular shaped work in position.
This is an aluminium casting, that requires a hole to be drilled, through its top surface.
