*New or used jigs may not fit your engraving machines vise posts. WHY? Tight clearances, if your engraving machine was heavily used, the vise post may be out of aligment .This is caused mainly by over tighting the vise. Also the post may have small nicks, burs or just plain dirt, which will not allow the jig to slide down on the vise post. FIX THE PROBLEM First off clean all the accumulated dirt and crud off the post. Use a fine sand paper or steel wool, for cleaning and polishing the post. Next with a fine flat file or sand paper remove any nicks or burs that might be on the vise post. If jigs still do not slip down on the vise post, go to the next step. Place the jigs on top of the engraving machines vise post and looking straight down, try to determine which jig hole is preventing the jig from sliding down on the vise post/posts. Using (sparingly), a “rat tail”, or a 5/32” chain saw file, (the best fit). File the hole in the jig, a few light strokes, repeat this as many times as needed to allow the jig to slide down on the vise posts. You want to file a small bit from each jig hole. This allows for a good alignment of the jigs. Remember you will be using two (2) of the holes in the jig, not all four of them. Mark the completed jig, as you will use the same jig on the same side of the vise. Now repeat, the above procedure, for the other half of the jig. With some luck you might have jigs that fit as they are received.
